[Solved] SD Card not Recognized by PC
You insert your SD card into the internal card reader, but the SD card is not recognized by PC and the SD card drive doesn’t show up. The problem can be caused due to driver issue, system issue and device issue. Following we will show you how to troubleshoot this problem.
Firstly, check if the problem is caused by drivers.
The problem can be caused by faulty drivers. You can try to update the drivers and see if the problem resolves.

To update your drivers with Driver Easy, just click the Scan Now button, then when it lists the drivers you need to update, click Update. The correct drivers will be downloaded, and you can install them – either manually through Windows or all automatically with Driver Easy Pro.
Secondly, check if the problem is caused due to card issue.
If the SD card is broken, it won’t be recognized by PC. You can plug the card into another PC to see if it works. If it doesn’t work either, you can try cleaning the card. After cleaning the card, if it still doesn’t work, the card is probably broken, you may need to have your card replaced.
Thirdly, check if the card reader works.
If the card reader is stuck with dust, it will lead bad contact between the card and the card reader. Try cleaning the card reader slot and see if this solves the problem.
Fourthly, check if the card reader is disabled in BIOS settings.
At the first screen after restart, look for a key to press for “BIOS” or “Settings”. Verify that the card reader has not been disabled in the BIOS settings.
