A): If the card reader is not displayed in "Device Manager," there may be a USB port (or a 20-pin USB 3.0 connector on the PC motherboard in the case of an internal reader) malfunction.

B): Try plugging the reader into another USB port (or another 20-pin USB 3.0 connector on the PC motherboard, if available, in the case of an internal reader). The card reader should be detected and the drivers loaded automatically. If this does not solve the problem, try checking the USB controller status in "Device Manager" in the "USB Drivers" section. If the problem persists, plug the card reader into the USB port of another computer to verify its functionality.

A): If this happens, it means that the operating system failed to get the necessary information to install the drivers.

B): The cause may be a defective USB cable or damaged device. Another option is to remove the record of the connected USB device using "USBDeview". After connecting the reader, the drivers should be reloaded. If the problem is caused by a driver error, the problem should be eliminated. If the problem persists, plug the card reader into the USB port of another computer to verify its functionality.
