SD card slot not working - Satellite 2410-601
Posted: 11-Feb-2006 19:33
I've had my TOSHIBA Satellite 2410-601 laptop for nearly 3 years and have never needed to use the SD slot. Now however, I would like to use it, since I've got it.
When I insert an SD card, the "flashy light" works, but I don't see the drive in My Computer.
I've tried downloading the drivers off this website and following the instructions - but to no avail.
It has to be a driver or programme problem I think.

First of all you should check the device manager if the SD slot in installed properly.
If the yellow exclamation mark occurs in the device manger in the SD area so there is something wrong. Usually the driver is missing. In this case you have to install the SD host controller driver and SD memory card driver. These drivers you will find on the Toshiba website.

If the device was installed properly and the device manager doesn’t show any exclamation marks so you have to use a supported and compatible SD card.
Please check you user’s manual for supported SD cards.

Hi deborah

Follow the Eldorados description. You have to install also the SD controller and driver.
The compatible SD card must be in the slot.
Check the user manual for compatible SD cards. It’s very important that you use supported cards because the OS can not recognises not compatible SD cards.
