  1. I have a problem with the Chipset O2 Micro sd host controller : The card is not detected, however windows make a sound when I retire the card.

    1. Do you have any errors in the device manager? Can you see the card reader?

      Do you see any drive if you open up folder options and uncheck “Hide Empty Drives”?

      You can try to disable the card reader in the system BIOS, load Windows and then shut down and re-enable it to see if it comes up as new hardware when you power the machine back on.

      1. No I have no errors in the device manager, There are the 2 memory card drivers (“O2Micro Integrated MMC SD controller” and “O2Micro Integrated MS/MSPRO/xD controller”). And I observed a detail : I have a SD card wich is not recognized, I have an micro SD USB adapter, and I have a micro SD SD adapter with a micro SD card wich is not recognized EXCEPT if the micro SD card have already been recognized by computer with the micro SD USB adapter, wich works, it.

        Then, by checking off “Hide empty drives” there is no changes.
        I will try to disable card reader in the bios.

      1. What do I do now ?

        There are no changes after your BIOS technic supposition. I have another question again : How can I read a Memory Stick Pro with the card reader ? I thought I can because it is written in front of the card reader but I can not see how to do ?

        And another thing : My computer do the “deconnected device sound" when I remove the card from the slot, so it knows there is something..
