I have a Micro SD card + adapter that has worked since I got it, but now when I put it in my laptop, it doesn't get recognized. I put it in my computer and it gets recognized, so it's not the SD card/adapter. Also, the slot where I insert the SD card has a blue light to signify when the card is in the slot, but the light is always on now?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

Check the SD device manufacturer's support site for updated drivers.

My System


I think jcgriff2 is suggesting that the look for a driver for your SD Card/Adapter not for the SD card.

Yes... look under Memory Technology Driver (or similar) in Device Manager -
START | type devmgmt.msc

- RIGHT-click on one of the devices listed
- click "Properties"
- click "driver" tab
- click "Driver Details"

Look up driver name --> Driver Reference Table

What OS are you running - Vista or Windows 7? OS under username = XP.

Please update profile details - 3rd line down - http://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...do=editprofile

Run BSOD file collection script and I'll see if I can find SD card driver (skip step #3 for now) -

BSOD Posting Instructions - NT6x

Is SD card slot built into system? If SD adapter, plug it in before running the script.

Attach resulting zip file to this post.

Regards. . .
