    Hello, I have a toshiba satellite A200-23K.
    I just installed Windows 7, ALL drivers from toshiba driver support and all microsoft windows updates, including the 32 GB suport for SD flash memory cards.
    http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com

    But the in the device manager there was a item named " Mass Storage Controller " witch was not installed (that would be SD card reader) but I didn't saw any driver for " Texas Instruments PCIxx12 Integrated FlashMedia Controller " and installed VISTA driver instead. Now the device look's fine in device manager but it only read a normal SD card, and when I insert a 4GB SDHC it happend nothing. In windows XP / vista and linux (fedora / ubuntu) there is no problem with SDHC (4GB and 8GB Kingmax SDHC class 6).

    I would greatly apreciate in advance if someone will make a driver for the card reader (i'm using it pretty mutch for photos).

    Hi buddy,

    I think the problem is the outdated Vista driver that doesnít work 100% properly on Windows 7Ö

    As far as I know Satellite A300 that supports Windows 7, is also equipped with Texas Instruments card reader or at least the driver is also from the same company as for Satellite A200.

    In your case I would try this driver, I hope it works! :)

    Hi

    Satellite A300 notebooks are equipped with an O2Micro or Ricoh card reader controller.
    Iím not quite sure if these drivers would work on A200.
    But you can test itÖ choose any A300 and try the card reader control driver.

    But I recommend check this:
    How to identify an unknown device?

    If you would get DEV and VEN ID then you would know what card reader controller you have and could google for drivers.

    I will not install drivers from another vendor, just from Texas Instruments, I don't wish to mess the operating system up. :)

    Hi

    Did you try to allow Win 7 to search for this driver automatically?
    Please do this. This functioned on my notebook.
    Establish the internet connectional and try to update the driver in device manager.
    Choose ďLet Windows search automaticallyĒ.

    Models like A200 and A300 are almost the same so you can install Win7 driver listed for A300 (if you cannot find it for A200). Donít worry you will not mess up operating system.

    Just install driver for ďCard reader controllerĒ and everything will be OK.

    No, itís not the same notebook. Iíve got A210 but it supports also a card reader from Texas instruments.
    Iíve got a idea; try the Vista driver released for A210Ö it would be interesting to know if this would be compatible..

    Try to install Vista 32bit Flash media driver or Card Reader Controller for A300. I found it ;)

    One of them must work.
