doesn't recognize any sd cards any more after upgrading windows 8


  • after upgrading win8 from altavita my laptop built-in: SD card slot - doesn't recognize any sd cards any more. 

    its seems to work just fine if i use that adapter card box that plug though the USB - so nothing is wrong with the card... in fact i have saved the boot win8 installation .exe  from that built in SD card - last time its worked.

  • You probably need to install a driver for the built in sd card slot.

    Btw what do you mean by:"upgrading win8 from altavita"

    sorry: i had altavista before and than i insulted windows 8 on top of the existing altavista... rather than format the machine & than install the new windows 8....

    i hop its more clear now.

  • sd card slots etc are notorious for driver nonsense

    i spent some $ on a usb 56-in-1 that works fine with all skus of windows from xp up including server

  • Hello I m facing a similar problem on my DELL 1535. I upgraded from Vista to Windows 8 and now my internal card slot is not working any solutions. I have checked my control panel and tried updating the drivers for some unknown buss controller but windows somehow can't find the drivers.

    I think this is a common problem for all windows 8 upgrades. Any advice how to fix the internal card slot ??

  • I have done much work on drivers, Realtec is one vendor, try them for a driver
