    USB SD Card Reader Says 'Please insert Disk'


    Hi all, as the title says I bought a SD card reader ( USB 2 0 480 Mbps microSDHC SD SDXC UHS I Memory Card Reader Writer Flash Drive | eBay ) and it's not working. it looks like this currently (Q disk):

    Anytime I try to open it it says this:

    It's listed as a 'Mass USB Storage Device' in device manager. Can't format it either.

    You have the reader but you need an SD/MMC card in it. It's only a reader or adapter, like a DVD player needs a DVD to play.

    I do have one inserted, when it's not the Removable Disk goes a bit transparent.

    Is the card inserted formatted? Does that card reader require any drivers to be installed? I ask because it reads multiple types of cards.

    I have a couple of these, SD-MMC Card Reader. No drivers needed and no issues reading SD cards as of yet. Yours seems a bit more involved and reads many more card types, that's why I wondered if it needed drivers installed.

    No '!' or '?'. It's the Mass Storage USB Device.

    Did it come with a driver CD/DVD, or are their any drivers offered by the manufacturer?

    Nope, comes with no CD and can't seem to find the manufacturer of it.
