    I've got a new Lenovo Z470 with Windows 7 32 bit.

    When I put an SD Card in the slot from my camera nothing happens.

    The card doesn't show up in My Computer.

    I've looked on the Lenovo website for drivers but can't find anything specific to this problem.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    goto device manager

    and look under disk drivers - see if you have a media controller there

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Device Manager
    Post back the results in device manager

    windows key and pause Key should open to allow device manager to be seen on laptops may need to use windows key + FN key + Pause Key
    if not then

    Start > control Panel {Vista set to classic view}> system > {Vista, device manager on left hand side} {XP hardware Tab, device manager button} >
    windows 7
    start > control panel> System and Security> Device Manager

    Ah thanks. It isn't installed so Windows has found me a driver to install which seems to have worked.

    Thanks.
