Dell 5150 - just tried to use the card reader but nothing is happening?? Not even being recognized. Checked Device manager - the yellow exclamation marks are next to 'storage' volumes - have tried updating driver with no success - have just recently had the PC repaired due to crash -
Put card in reader got to device manager select each generic storage device and right click - uninstall when all uninstalled click Action (at top of device manager)- scn for hardware changes. the storage devices will be reinstalled and you will now be able to see you card in My computer.
I have exactly the same problem and am still (occasionally) looking for a solution to keep the drives seen in My computer after I've rebooted the PC.
