Right click on my computer -> Properties -> Hardware tab -> Device Manager. In the device manager check for any devices that either say unknown storage device, unknown media device and also check if the SD reader has a yellow exclamation beside it. If there is you can go here and download the driver for it.

when i went to device manager, the only thing i see with an exclamation mark is "other devices" and it clicks down to "base system device"

Which update do i download?

Hello,

Have you check Windows Update for any updates? Have you got the latest chipset drivers for you mother board?

Cheers,
Mak

Yeah so like Mak said the next thing to do is get the chipset drivers from the site I posted earlier.
