Dell 2407 Monitor card reader


  • Has anyone gotten a card reader built into a dell monitor to show up in Windows 7? I got any and all updates to Win 7 I could find. I installed the latest Vista chipset drivers for my motherboard, and also tried some drivers from Intel. The Memory card reader just does not show up at all. There is also a memory card reader built into the printer and it works fine.

    At one point there were Dell SM bus drivers available as an optional update. I tried installing them, but they failed. Now, just yesterday they no longer show up in Windows update.

  • Did you correctly install the USB cable running from the Dell monitor to the computer?

  • Yeah...I don't think I could have messed that up.

  • Does it show up if you insert a card? Windows 7 has a feature that hides drives that are empty.

  • Card in or out, no drive shows up. The printer on the other hand shows a drive, whether a card is inserted or not.

  • Where can I read about doing that? I checked the sticky, but didn't see any info about reporting it to the devs.

  • I've been struggling with this as well. 

    The 2407 has a 9 in 1 card reader, that is assigned a driver letter by Win 7. When you click on it with no flash card installed, it correctly tells you to insert a disk. When you have a card inserted, it attempts to access the card but explorer becomes unresponsive, sorta. The address bar starts loading slowly, takes a few minutes to complete. If you close explorer, you can't access my computer for a while when you repoen it (explorer shows all locations except your computer). 

    I've noticed that XP used to find the 2407 drivers in Windows update, but win 7 does not. Instead, the drivers that are installed for the card reader appear to be:

    : Generic Flash HS-CF USB Device

    : Generic Flash HS-Combo US Device

    I haven't been able to get any drivers from the dell site to attempt a manual upgrade, they issue drivers via some download app that ironically appears not to run too well in Win 7 either.

  • Thanks for saying this. Although that was a simple step. I missed it.
