Access Denied -SD/MMC Card Reader


  • Hi everybody!

    I have a problem with my card reader. I have a S260(MS-1012) from MSI and it's integrated card reader (a Ricoh Bay1 Controller).
    It doen't work well. Windows 7 install it and "Equipo" (i'm spanish, in english "Computer"?) recognize it. But when i try to open my sd card it says "Acess Denied". The same if i try to open it from command.

    Pleasse help me!!!

    PD: I try with differentes sd cards and mmc cards. I reinstalled the drivers from my drivers CD (from windows xp but work well in 7).

  • Ady,

    Are there Windows Vista drivers available for that card reader? Typically, you'll have better luck with Windows Vista drivers in Windows 7.

         I had this same problem and was able to make all of the problems that I was having running Windows 7 on my XP tablet.  My card reader would not work.  It would recognize the card was inserted, but would display an error message that said access denied.  I found that it was not an ownership issue or a administrative user problem.  I also could not get the screen to rotate. Once I disabled UAC (User Account Control), everything worked.  Here's how to do it:  The risk of this is that you won't have a pop-up every time you install a program.  This could allow something to install that you didn't want.
