Re: Card reader update to read SDHC cards?

I have a HP nx9420 that I purchased back in 2006.  It is multi card reader equiped from the factory.  It runs xp SP3 with hotfixes installed and it won't read/write or recognize my 8gb SDHC card.  I installed ubuntu 12.10 as a dual boot OS and ubuntu recognizes and I can read and write to my 8gb SDHC card.  So what's the deal?

Hey dls73154, 

 

I'm sorry you're running into this card reader issue. It's good to know that it works in Ubuntu because that confirms that it's not a hardware issue. This means it is most likely a driver issue. Given the age, the driver either needs to be updated or just reinstalled. Try downloading the following drivers and let me know the results once those are installed. 

 

Texas Instruments Media Card Driver version 2.0.0.7 B

 

BIOS version F.1D
