I've got a new Lenovo Z470 with Windows 7 32 bit.

When I put an SD Card in the slot from my camera nothing happens.

The card doesn't show up in My Computer.

I've looked on the Lenovo website for drivers but can't find anything specific to this problem.

Any ideas?

I have a 100s -11IBY running Win 10     I have been using a Samsung 64gb Micro sd card formatted NTFS.and has been working ok and I have stored data.   Recently the built in card reader no longer recognises the card or makes any sound when I insert or remove the card.   The card reads as a Fat 32 on my desktop and now has no data stored.   I have tried other cards which I know are working with in the built in cars reader with the same result.In divice manager on the 100s the SD Host controller lists 3 identical host controllers  and state divice is working properly.  Same with the SD storage class contoller.   I have tried updating the drivers in both and it says the best driver for your divice is already installed .  The 100S is about 4 months old   Please help

Hi, I am interested in dual-boot a Linux distro on my computer using an SD card. My idea is to plug a sd card into the reader and directly run a Linux on it (my laptop has only 128GB, so I won't partition my SSD due to limited space). I read another post about another Lenovo laptop about booting using SD card, and one of the comments points out that Lenovo laptop connected the SD card reader to the PCIe and not USB, so that booting from SD card is not possible. Is this the same case on my Ideapad 320-15IKB laptop? I hope I can run Ubuntu on a 128GB SDXC card.  I tried to confirm the SD card reader is whether connected to the PCIe or USB through the device manager manu. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the card reader in the device manager. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.Jonathan

Whenever I insert a 128GB SDXC Card into my IdeaPad 500-151SK the following zaps-in at the bottom right corner of the screen: "There's a problem with this drive. Scan the drive now and fix it." I did have the same problem with 64GB SDXC Cards and took it back to the retailer, who, I think, fixed it. I hope that it is capable of read/writing to SDXC Cards up to 256GB? Your advice will be appreciated.Regards.

Hi everyone! The card reader on my newly bought Ideapad 700-15ISK doesn't work properly while it detects the inserted card, but in two minutes the card reader unmounts itself. The only way to reactivate it is to pull it out and put it back, but in a few minutes it unmounts again automatically even if I don't touch the computer at all. I think it is a software problem, but reinstalling the driver didn't help. Did someone experience similar problems?

Hello Everybody , I would really need your help to figure this out ! yesterday, I used my card reader in my laptop ( ideapad 500-15ISK ) and I entered and SD-HC 4GB card on it , and copied some files. Then after it , I had a Memory stick Duo like this one : ?of course it was smaller than the slot, I thought I might try nevertheless ! ( I hope that this wasn't a bad idea and I burned my card reader !!! )  of course , it didn't work ! so I just removed and forgot about it ! today, I was trying again to put the SD-HC 4GB card,  and it didn't work, and I tried another one , it didn't work.I tried installing all the drivers in the support.lenovo.com that has to do with my laptop, still didn't work.  Anybody knows what could have happened ? What should I do ? did I damage my card reader ?  My laptop is relatively new, it has been only 4 months since I bought.

I own a LENOVO 100S Chromebook. Lenovo does not sell these any more. I looked online if my chromebook had a Card Reader. I also own a Kodak and need a Card Reader to do what I needed to do. The website I looked at stated that Yes it does. But... it did not state where. My question is If and Where is my Card Reader?

A:Card Reader? for LENOVO 100S

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
According to your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual there is a card reader.  It should be on the left side of the laptop and it is in between the USB port and the Audio Jack.   The card reader may have a dummy card inserted into it to keep the slot free of dust. That may have prevented you from easily seeing it.  Just eject the dummy card for use of the slot.
Here is your manual for your reference.  Page #37 shows the location of the card reader.

Driver date 6/21/2006, Driver version 10.0.10586.0 I tried reinstaling card driver, but no luck.I also tried to move a little sd card when its in sd card slot, to see if it looses contact, but its not loosing it. Any suggestions? Tnx,Aleks

Hello, I have a ?Y510P Leonovo Ideapad? and found out, that the mainboard contains an empty port-connector labeled with ?SSD?. A picture of this connector is in the attached image. I am planning to upgrade the Laptop with an SSD-card to improve system speed. Within this context I have a couple of questions, regarding the specifications of this port and suitable SSD-cards: Does this port both accept SATA as well as PCIe SSD-cards?Is there a limitation on the maximum memory-size of the installed SSD-card? Can I install a 256GB SSD-card? (For example ?Transcend MTS400 256GB SSD?) ?Can I partition the SSD-card in a way to fully install Windows 10 on it, making it the boot partition. The SSD-card should then be visible as a standard drive C:\ under Windows.Can I also install a second operating system (Linux) onto a second partition on the SSD-card, making it a dual boot system?I would be very happy, if anyone could help me with these questions, so that I can upgrade the laptop with the appropriate SSD-card and configuration. Thanks in advance,electron8000

Hello. I have a Lenovo ideapad 100s - 80R2 that I just bought a few years ago. The device is running Windows 10 Home, build 1511. I have recently bought a Sandisk 32GB microSDHC card for use of the built-in microSD card slot of the device. When I tried to insert the card into the slot, there was not "Hardware Insert" notification sound coming out of Windows. I thought the card wasn't working. When I managed to insert the card into a USB microSD card reader, the system was able to detect the card, so it means it's working fine, but the microSD card isn't. I tried to find any updates for the SD card controller of the device, but it says it's already the latest version. Any help?

A:Lenovo Ideapad 320-15ikb 81BG Ram upgarde and turn on descrete video card

Hi NtSG,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
The OEM certified ram are listed here in the hardware manual (Item 5 page 71).
You can also check using parts lookup with model number or MTM. On commodity type, filter it by checking on memory.
Regarding disabling the integrated GPU similar to this discussion, it was made as default by OEM so BIOS do not permit change to be made rather you can just assign an application to the MX150 instead. Other ended up with a black screen even on BIOS when they tried tweaking it so best to either stay with the OEM recommendation.
Hope this helps answer your query.

Nowhere in the documentation, web site is any info about what kind of controller and hence what size SD cards this model is supporting.Even Lenovo tech support doesn't know that info!I am really hesitant to buy a SDXC card of +32GB only to find out it supports on SDHC cards, thus limited to 32GB... thanks for any useful info, Ralf

A:What kind of SD card controller is in a Lenovo IdeaPad 120S-11AIP? SDHC or SDXC compatible?

Hi ITWorxLA,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
As per system overview :
IO port: Memory card slot (SD/SDHC/SDXC/MMC)
Platform specification:
One microSD Card slot, supports up to 2TB
Usually there would be stickers on the box or laptop to indicate the format it also supports.
You can try to find/borrow  a spare 32GB SDXC to test first before purchase.
Hope this helps answer your query.

Hey everyone. I am having trouble with my Multi-Card Reader/SD Card Reader. I am trying to take pictures off of my SD card and put them on my computer. I have lost my USB cord for the camera and can't locate it at this time or I would do that.

So anyway, I put the card in the SD card drive and the green light does not come on. I then open up My Computer and the drive isn't even listed. I checked in Device Manager as well and as far as I know, it is not listed in there either. If it is, then it is under a name that I don't recognize.

So anyway, I would greatly appreciate some help in getting my computer to recognize my Multi-Card Reader/SD Card Reader.

Hello, I have a question about SD Card Readers. I have one where you insert the SD Card, and plug in a USB cable to connect it to the computer. Does the SD Card use a USB Root Hub to connect, or does it use the Realtek 2.0 Card Reader?

My real question is, if I had accidentally uninstalled my Realtek 2.0 Card Reader built into the computer, will an SD Card Reader connected by USB be able to read the SD Cards?

Also, is there a way I can prevent SD cards from being read through a reader on my computer without uninstalling a USB Hub Driver? Like specifically prevent new Drivers from being installed, or prevent new SD Cards from being recognized? Such as using a free downloadable tool that someone may know about.

I have tried going to Devices and Printers, right clicking on my PC, Device Installation Settings, then turning off automatic driver installs. After I do that, and plug in a new device, it still auto installs the drivers and can use it.

A:Does an SD Card Reader need the Realtek 2.0 Card Reader Driver?

Disable the driver, through Device Manager.

Windows 7 SP2 Intel desktop PC.
I have a weird 3? slot internal USB card reader problem.
All SD and mSD cards (last with adapter) are recognized normally as storage devices except one Sandisk Extreme Pro 8GB micro SD, which worked normally until 2 weeks ago but still works normally with other external USB card reader.
With internal USB reader all SD cards used to be drive L: and still are L:, except this Sandisk Pro.
When this Sandisk mSd card is inserted nothing happens and looks like Windows considers it as nothing or something else but not a storage device.
Nor computer storage manager doesn't see it in internal card reader.

But when I use external card reader, this Sandisk SD card works normally and is given a letter S:.

It looks like some kind registry numerator of USB devices has listed this SD card ID as not storage device.
Any ideas how to troubleshoot?

A:SD card stopped working in old reader while reader and card are OK

If it were in the registry as not a valid device, it wouldn't work from the external reader, either. I would check to make sure that you don't have dirty contacts in the internal reader. Sometimes dust can get in there and raise havoc, especially on some SD cards which have more active contacts than others. One dirty contact can make one card not work, while other, low density cards, will.

So everything has been working fine on my laptop until about 10:30PM EST tonight. I bought it new in August 2011.
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
CPU: Intel Core i7-2630QM @ 2.00 GHz
HD: 750 GB
It's always been a fine machine with NO problems.
However, last night there were Windows 7 updates that were installed and then restarted my computer. I had not gotten a chance to check exactly what they were though. About 10:30 this evening, flash crashed in Mozilla Firefox which is not that uncommon, and from there Firefox closed, and so did my Microsoft Word and Excel apps that were open. From there, my computer began to shut down and restart. When it went to restart, all it could do was go to the opening Lenovo screen which gives you the F2 (setup option) and F12 (multiboot menu option) as it typically does. Besides a thin strip at the top that appeared after about 30 secs that only displays moving static that eventually will just stick, that is where the boot process ends. No Windows 7 screen, and certainly no opportunity to boot into safe mode to check for any problems. The screen freezes and goes nowhere.
So basically, all I'm getting in terms of boot options are lenovo features, not windows 7 features, meaning it won't boot into windows 7 or windows 7 safe mode no matter what I try. The biggest problem here is that I have no windows 7 disc to even try to boot from my dvd drive.
Anybody have any suggestions on what the probl... Read more
