Re: microsd adapter is not reading on my laptop

Is you laptop an older model? Maybe it pre-dates the SDHC (>2GB) format. If this is the case, I believe there's an update on the MicroSoft Support website that can bring it up to speed.

Re: microsd adapter is not reading on my laptop

you may be thinking of the microsoft update for SDHC cards larger than 8GB. that was pushed out over a year ago so if you have automatic updates turned on you will have that one. 

 

the update needed would be a firmware update for the reader if it is available. microsoft updates will not help for a SDHC incompatibility issue.

there is nothing on the card that is needed that can be deleted. does the card work in other devices? if not its pardonably a bad card and will need to be replaced.

Simple questions;

 

Is the card still working with you mobile phone? (it could be a problem with the adapter)

have you tried using your phone as a means of reader?

have you tested other cards with your PC?

Have you checked under Device Manager if the Internal card reader has been disabled by accident or something?
