SD card reader problems

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I recently bought an Emtec micro SD card, which came with an SD adapter. Upon unboxing the card and plugging it into my desktop's SD card reader on the front panel, nothing happened. Fearing the card was a dud, I plugged it into my laptop, where it worked perfectly. So I went online, absolutely no help whatsoever. Then I remembered that I had a Sony multi-card reader that I use to get pictures off my camera's CF cards which also had an SD card reader slot on it. Plugged the Sony reader into my laptop and the SD card into, no problems. Then upon trying the Sony reader on my desktop, it worked... I tried again in the computer's native reader, but it still was not detected, no Windows beep, back into the Sony reader, perfect. WTF. Was waiting for help, but then I realized: I PLUGGED IT WRONG. I hate myself now, HOW DID I NOT NOTICE THAT, WTF. Anyways, I'm dumb, I don't need help
