System Win7 64 Bit on HP 6520f

The media card reader is gone - doesn't show on device manager or on disk manager. No lights no action.

Tried my older SanDisk usb reader and it is acting strangely also. Sometimes its seen with a certain SD card but then not with another (the cards are seen fine by my camera).

Tried it in numerous usb ports and same behavior.

Windows says that the drivers are up to date.

Tried deleting the usb driver and restarting but same.

Ideas?

Re: Card Reader Gone

Is the media card reader an internal device? If so, boot into Setup (Bios) and see if it is listed, it may be Disabled. Choose to Enable it Save and Exit. When you restart, you should get a new hardware wizard.

Re: Card Reader Gone

Went into BIOS and all usb ports were enabled.

On a hunch...
Traced the wire from the card reader to the main board and saw that it was labeled "usb5". So deactivated that port > restart > shut down > back into BIOS and activate usb5 > restart = Fixed !!! :dance:

Thanks funky
