A): Drivers are included with operating systems and are installed completely automatically. The card reader is detected as a standard storage device, such as a USB flash disk, no other drivers are available.

B): No other drivers need to be installed and are not even available. If you continue to have problems with your reader, check out more tips that can help you troubleshoot problems.

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.

A): If this happens, it means that the Windows operating system did not assign a drive letter to the new storage device.

B): If the drive letter is not assigned, open "Disk Management", right-click on the desired drive and manually assign the drive letter. Another option is that the correct formatting of the memory card is not performed. Format the card in "Disk Management" or in the device on which you are using the card (for example, the camera).
