    The SD card reader slot on my Gateway laptop doesnt read my sd cards upon insertion. It is not the card, because I have tried multiple SD cards and they all do not work. There is no error message or anything, the drive just does not appear in my computer like it used to so that I can view the files on the card. I have had this problem previously, and it was fixed by repairing my texas instruments controller thing in device manager, but it is working ok when i look at it in device manager now without the slot working. Any help is appreciated!

    Try uninstall the device, after uninstall right click scan for hardware changes.

    Well, if it was working previously and now isn't and the drivers are up to date and you uninstall and reinstall to no avail....sounds like the hardware took a crap.

    Is this one of those multi care readers where it reads other things as well or just the one?
