SD card reader (Mass storage device) driver for Toshiba Windows 7

I recently upgraded one of my laptops from Vista to Windows 7 and everything went smoothly except when I tried to insert an SD card in the memory slot and found out that it was not working. When I checked Device Manager in Control Panel, I saw that there was a “Mass Storage” device which had the exclamation sign, meaning it was not working properly. It is this that was causing the problem and I tried to update the driver through Control Panel but Windows was unable to do it.

I also tried one of the recovery CDs that I got from Toshiba but that didn’t work as well. So I started looking on the web for a mass storage device for my Toshiba A100 027 laptop but couldn’t find it. It’s not even listed on the Toshiba website and they usually have quite a lot of drivers for you to download just in case you need them. Anyway, I was lucky enough to stumble upon a forum which had a link to a driver which would solve the problem. Here’s the direct link to the driver for the SD card reader:

I am always skeptic of downloading .exe file (executables) as they may contain viruses/trojans but the above link is safe and works well on my laptop. After installing it, I was able to get the SD memory card reader to work properly again.

    Hi, searching for a solution to this problem of my toshiba equium a100 running windows 7 & not recognising the sd card. I had hoped that finding your posting with the exe file would sort this out. I’ve downloaded it and run it, however, still not able to read the sd card: it doesn’t show up on othe organiser and the little light on the front edge of the laptop base doesn’t light up when a sd card is inserted. Any suggestions on how to fix would be much appreciated.
