Strange Micro SD Card problem win7 64Bit

Hi,

 

Laptop: Dell inspiron n5110

OS: Win7 64Bit

Internal Card Reader: Realtek RTS5138

 

I have an assortment of Micro SD cards and a micro SD card adapter.

 

 

 

These work fine on my other 3 laptops.

 

BUT

 

When i put them in my dell i get this:

 

 

 

 

Then i get this:

 

 

 

Then this:

 

 

 

 

 I thought the card reader was faulty but it is seeing the sd card..

All help / ideas / suggestions, welcomed and appreciated.

 

Thanks,

SDCard

Hello,

 

in that case the adapter seems to be defective so you can replace it with a new one and see if the same issue occurs with it also.

 

 

Good Luck

I'm laughing as I had the same problem with a Sandisk micro SD adapter. The slider on the adapter slips to the write protect setting as it is inserted into the card reader. Solution? Tape the slider in place with a small piece of scotch tape.

Perhaps instead of tape, you should glue the slider in the non protected setting with a very small amount of glue. With tape, there is always the chance the tape comes off, and gets stuck in the card reader. if you use a bit of glue on the adapter, make sure the glue is dry before putting the adapter into the reader.
