inbuilt card reader won't work

By fafdsfs ·
i have a 12-in-1 card reader at the front which i use for my photography but recently the card reader stoped responding. I put in a memory card but nothing shows up on screen. even the two usb ports i have on the side of my computer don't work, but the ones on the back of the desktop work fine. When i open my computer i always had a list of removable devices but now it only shows my cd drive. How can i fix this.

It sounds as if the Card Reader has had it's Software corrupted

You need to install the Driver for this Device so do as Jacky suggested above to find the latest Card Reader Drivers.

The other thing you can check if you have had the case open is that the Connector has not come off the USB Header Strip for the 12 in 1 Card Reader. If it has you need to reconnect the 9 Wires tot he correct Pins. You'll need your M'Board Manual to do this properly.

Just in case this might apply ...

Are you in the habit of leaving this computer constantly running apart from occasionally powering down?

I got caught out with this problem once and it didn't dawn on me that it only ever happened when the computer had been powered up for a number of days - if you insert an SD Card (or whatever) and read from it then use the Safely Remove method prior to extracting the card, it won't appear as a device again until you cycle the power state.

Effectively the Safely Remove method can actually remove the entire card reader from the list of devices, but you would never notice unless you tried to use it again within the same session.

Humble suggestion

Mine wouldn't, either.

Turned out, the cleaning lady, in methodically wiping the front -- and the right side of the box -- once a week, succeeded only in impacting more and more and more dirt, debris, and detritus into the various slots.
