Having issues with your Card Readers in Windows 7 not working? Here's resolution!

You do not need drivers for the card reader. There are NO Windows 7 drivers.

 

(1.) Click on the Start button and then choose Control Panel.

(2.) Click on the Administrative Tools a window will open.

(3.) In the Administrative Tools window, double-click on the Computer Management

(4.)  When Computer Management opens, click on Disk Management on the left side of the window, located under Storage

(5.) This is where you will see Drives listed. The Card Reader will be listed as 1-4. Just right click & assign Drive Letter.

 

Right click on each of the drives 1-4 and assign a Drive Letter. Now place your SD card in the correct slot and an a pop up for auto play will show. Now you reader works and will also show when you open COMPUTER it will show them as removable drives with proper drive letters. It took me several days to figure out after no help from HP or internet search. So when found the drives listed I just right clicked saw assign drive and it worked. Hope a lot of people searching on internet find this reply so that it will help them get there card reader working again under Windows 7 because even there tech's don't have an answer. Well good luck because this will work!!!

I followed the steps but did not see drive 1, 2, 3, 4.  I see C; J:smileysad:backup drive, D: CD/DVD.  I'm still not able to get the card reader to recognize an inserted card.

Did EXACTLY as you instructed.  Only things listed under disk management is C drive & DVD drive (D).  Absolutely nothing else
