SD card reader not recognizing card

\015 Inspiron 6000, Windows XP (Media Center Edition, Version 2002), is not recognizing SD cards. SD slot is built into laptop. When card is inserted, computer takes no action whatsoever.\015

Answers :

The original file (apparently version 2.0) is here:

the updated driver (version 2.3) is located here:
scroll down to where you see RICOH card reader driver

or more specifically this link here:

even though the site is primarily in german, all the component names are in english, go figure. So it would seem that the asus comp manufacturer are a little more forthcoming than dell in this particular instance. for example, nowhere on my component sheet does it say that RICOH is the manufacturer for the card reader, that's something i got from you guys on the forums

anyway, after installing this driver and rebooting my comp, card reader immediately recognized both MMC and SD media. unfortunately, it was only able to access the mmc card, and i'll be shipping my comp off to dell for whatever motherboard replacement they're willing to give me (which i don't mind, so long as it works when it comes back to me) but i thought these links might be helpful for others who are having the same problem.
