    The panasonic support staff have said that no model of the CF-52 is eligible for the windows 10 upgrade. They are not and will not be supporting it. you can try using the windows 7 driver for the reader. but basically it looks like you will need to downgrade to windows 7 which normally is quite an easy process using the windows 10 downgrade tool.

    its a cf-52gunbx2b would be model
    sorry if I did not word the problem correctly not a computer person can do basics but not much more than that
    by what you are saying is the drivers do not support windows 10 so I will have to go back to windows 7 if I want to use the sd card reader

    Yes you will need to go back to windows 7.

    To do this click on the start menu and go to settings. Click update and security.

    Select recovery from the list on the left and click on Get Started under "Go back to Windows 7"

    your data will remain intact but its always a good idea to backup your data just in case

    Perhaps you wouldn't need to go back to Windows 7. I had Asus laptop and after upgrading SD reader didn't work. Couldn't find anything in Asus but found the driver on Lenovo. You just need to find out what SD card reader is used on your machine because many companies use the same card readers hardware. Then I'm sure you will be able to find the driver on other than your PC website. Just a bit of research that's all.
