Memory card reader

  Templar1961 19:42 27 Apr 2007

My Medion 8383 pc came with a built in Smart card reader which has suddenly stopped working.

Inserting SD cards used to automatically enable the card reader.

Now the LED no longer lights up and the card does not appear as a removable drive.

Any suggestions?

If it's under warrenty phone Medion, I had a faulty front Bay in mine

I had one replacement not long after purchase.

I think warranty is 3 years though?

If it's from Aldi it is three years

I found this advice on the Medion FAQs page click here :

My card readers aren’t being displayed in My Computer
1. Turn PC off
2. Turn the rocker switch at the back of the PC off
3. Press and hold the front power button for 60 seconds
4. Turn rocker switch back on
5. Turn PC on as normal

Tried the above but it didn't help!

I think it's a weak point in Medion PC's it was the USB in my front panel
