Re: card reader wont work

Hi,

 

Open Windows Explorer. Insert a multimedia card in the card reader.  You should now see the multimedia card as a drive with removeable storage appear in the Windows Explorer as in the following image. If you remove the card it should vanish from the list of drives.

if it is not visible, then I recommend that you reinstall the card reader driver.

 

That can be done  while logged into Windows via the recovery manager. Windows start orb-->All Programs -->HP-->Recovery Manager. Choose Drivers and Aplications reinstall.

Select the card reader driver from the available list of drivers and then click on Install.
