Satellite U920T - SD card reader error

Question: Satellite U920T - SD card reader error

Error BSOD Toshiba U920T card reader and Windows 8.1

Whenever I do a Scan, Format, Copy or Delete operation on my internal SDCARD I receive this error.

I have tested everything, all drivers are updated and it happens even with laptop in safe mode.

I even experimented with SDCARD formatted with Fat32, exFat and with NTFS.

This happens with the internal reader, if I use an external SDCARD reader connected to USB, there isn?t any problem, so there is no physical problem with cards.

I use 2 SD, one with 128GB and the other with 32GB.

If 32GB inserted, I do a disk>properties>scan and comes the BSOD saying FAT_FILE_SYSTEM without number

If 128GB inserted, I do a scan and comes the BSOD saying KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED no number

Anyone has any idea or my internal card reader needs to go guarantee?

Answer: Satellite U920T - SD card reader error

It looks like the internal SD card reader does not handle the inserted cards properly.
According to the notebook specifications (user manual) the card reader supports the SD card, SDHC and SDXC cards.

The card reader supports
SD cards up to 8GB
SDHC card (4GB/8GB/16GB/32GB)
SDXC card up to 64GB

I have this:

Windows 8.1.1 x64 (spanish version)

I have one PCI device without drivers. It is:

PCI\VEN_1AEA&DEV_6621&SUBSYS_1179F960&REV_00\4&81c f175&0&00E3.

When I install the official driver of toshiba website the device continue without driver. How to solve it?

Is this micro SD card Reader a Realtek driver? or Alcor driver? In the official website say Realtek but this code is of Alcor I think:

This is Realtek driver, not Alcor driver:
Is it possible that there is a error in the website of toshiba?

Anyone can help me? I don't found the driver.

Thank you!!!

Hi there!

Windows XP installation -> SP3 -> the SD Card Reader does not work any more.

CODE 10 "not to be started..."

I tried several drivers, but no one works fine. I have read about this problem, but I cannot degrade to SP2 or something. I guess, I need help!

I did not found such a topic here, dunno why?

It would be great, if somebody knows a healing of my card reader/driver.



Answer:Satellite P - Card reader doesn't work (error code 10)


At first you should tell us which notebook you have.
Have you installed the notebook with the recovery disk or Microsoft disk?

A downgrade to SP2 is only possible if on the CD is only SP2 or lower. If the CD is delivered with SP3 a downgrade to SP2 is not possible.

Have you tried the driver from the Toshiba website? => Support & Downloads => Download Drivers

Did you install a generic version of Windows? You need to install the AMD chipset driver first, so other PCI devices can install properly.

What is the size capacity of the SD Card?
Are you running XP? You may need to install Service Pack 3, or a Microsoft hotfix for SDHC support.

What do you mean exactly by ?MMC card doesn?t work??
What is card reader status in device manager?

I checked the user manual (can be downloaded from the Toshiba page) and it says the MMC cards are definitely supported.
I think this must be a software issue.

In your case I would recommend updating the Win XP to the latest state and to reinstall the Flash Media Driver and SD Secure Module again?

My Notebook ist a Satellite Pro L770-144 and the IO ist Windows 8 Pro 64bit.

But the cards are not recognized.
In Windows 7 it ??works.

Does anyone have an idea?
Greetings and Thanks
Leo L.

Answer:Satellite Pro L770-144: Win 8 card reader doesn't recogize SD card


First question:
Is card reader recognized in the device manager properly?
If its not recognized, then you used a wrong driver.

If its recognized, the driver has been installed properly and there is another reason why SD cards cannot be used.

As far as I know the card reader of Satellite Pro L770 handles different kind of cards and different sizes.
Memory Stick: 128MB-256MB
Memory Stick Pro: 512MB-2GB
xD Card: No
mini SD: 8MB-2GB
micro SD: 8MB-2GB
CompactFlash: No
SmartMedia: No

As you can see supported SD cards: 8MB ? 2GB
It seems bigger SD cards are NOT supported.

There is some trouble with the builtin card reader in my A300-1NO. If I put an SD card into it (SD or SDHC), it wants to recognize the cards as XD memory cards. So in the Device Manager window is a "Ricoh xD-Picture Card Disk Device" appearing now, with a yellow exclamation mark, and the card is not appearing as drive at all.
With Memory Sticks there is no problem, the reader handles them with almost no trouble.

I did try to reinstall the drivers by executing the setup "Card Reader Ricoh", which is downloadable from the toshiba website, but it didn't help.

So what's next?

Answer:Satellite A300-1NO - Card reader and SD memory card problem


Have you removed the old driver before you installed the newer one?
And can you format the SD cards using the Toshiba SD memory utility?

Normally the card reader should be able to read SD cards and SDHC cards too. Did you try cards from different manufactures?
I use SanDisk Extreme III cards and don?t have problem with these cards.

I recently bought a 1GB SD card and have tried to plug it into the 5-in-1 card reader built into my A100-163. Nothing appears in My Computer. I tried going to device manager and under 'disk drives' appears 'Secure Digital Storage Device' with a little yellow ! mark. I tried updating the SD Module Driver, but everytime i do that, the installer comes up with an error basicly saying it can find SD Secure Module.msi. It is trying to find it in an obscure temp folder which to me implies the installer is not extracting properly.

Can anyone help me read my SD card? Please help!

UPDATE: On the odd occassion, it will appear in My Computer as "Secure Digital Storage Device". When i double click on it, it says:

"E:\ is not accessible. THe request could not be performed because of an I/O device error."

Windows 8 uses the same drivers like Pro

>What about the display when i run the u920t with an external monitor ?
What do you mean exactly? You can use internal display, external display or both at the same time

>I want buy me the Toshiba PA3927E-1PRP Dynadock U3

Why not. Dynadock U3 supports own GPU therefore you could use 3 displays at the same time

Hi guys,

my girlfriend ordered a Toshiba Satellite U920T-100 about three months ago, and she has had problems with it since. We are not quite sure what causes them, because they seem to happen at random.

The issues are:
- It starts, but freezes at the Win8 Login with a blue screen (a rather warm blue, not the blue screen of death)
- It won't start at all, only after few attempts
- It won't shutdown
- It freezes while organizing files (e.g. copying files from A to B, but not even large amounts of files)

Again: those issues seem to be appearing completely at random, I wasn't able to reproduce them in any way.

Additionally: the WLAN connectivity is really bad.
The laptop isn't able to find networks, while my laptop has no problems with it.
And when it does find them and connects, the connection gets lost - again: no clue why.

This surprises me the most, because in the tests and reviews I've read the connectivity got praises everywhere.

Should I factory reset it?
Run through some specific tests?
Or is is hopeless, because there're so many issues with it?

I would appreciate your help!

Answer:Some issues with Satellite U920T-100


>Should I factory reset it?

I think you should do that because the described issue can be related to system problems as well as hardware issue (i.e HDD). The factory recovery helps you to check if its software or hardware related problem.

Usually all software (system) problems could be solved by recovery process. Hardware problems would continue.

So from my point of view, system recovery is the first step you should try to perform in order to solve the issue.
In case this does not help, an hardware issue (HDD or RAM) can be possible and since the notebook is still covered by warranty, I would recommend you to contact the service in order to check the unit.

Hope my advice could help you a little bit

Is this a hardware problem?


Answer:Cannot push the SD card into card reader of Satellite P series

Hi there,

such an SD-Card slot is not fragile like some chinese porcelain. I mean something must have been happened, because the SD-Card slot does not go by itself into the "nirvana".

Did you already checked if something is into it? I mean did you took some magnifiying glass and a battery light to check what exactly is in there?
I would suggest you to give the machine some technician which is really familiar with such machines and let him check whats wrong with your SD-Card slot.

Maybe it?s just some small thing.

Any suggestions what could cause this issue ?

Answer:Satellite U920T-10G - touchscreen without any function


In my opinion an process which controls the touchscreen hangs or does not response anymore and therefore you cannot get the touchscreen function to work.

Would recommend to reinstall the +Toshiba System Driver+ from Toshiba EU driver page.
If this does not help try the system recovery and test the unit with factory settings.

VGA port/cable does not support audio. You can send only video signals.
To get audio signal you would need to connect the notebook to the projector additionally using an audio cable.
Maybe you could connect the notebook?s headphone jack with projectors audio IN port (if available)

I have a new U920t-102 which I am very happy with, but I have this issue with the mousepad's right click (meaning the 'button' the user is able to press on the bottom-right side of the mousepad): sometimes it actually works as a right click, sometimes it works as a left click.
This is annoying especially during web navigation: I'm used to right click on links and open them in a new tab, but when the right click acts as left, I loose the current web page.

I tried to figure out what this behaviour depends on, looking at the animated synaptic icon in windows' tray bar while playing with the left and right click; if I continuosly press the right click button on the mousepad, after some repetitions it will consistely and correctly work as right click, but if press the left click once or more than once, the right click button works as left click for some pressures, and then 'corrects' itself and start again to work correctly.

Any idea/suggestion? is it a hardware problem?


Answer:Satellite U920t-102 touchpad right click issue

Usually the touchpad right / left click can be configured in the Synaptics settings.
Right click on Synaptics icon in tray and point to devices properties.
In buttons tab you will be able to choose right handed scheme or left handed.
Here you could choose the scheme appropriate for you.

You can also try to uninstall the Synaptics touchpad driver and could test the touchpad functionality without the usage of additional touchpad software.

But if this doesn’t help, your might have hardware problem

I just purchased the U920T-11C a few days ago.
I like it but there a few issues they are putting me off and make me want to return it.

The first issue is the loud fan noise that comes on. Is there anyway to turn this off?

It happens about 15 mins into using the web and then goes on and off every 5 mins or so. It is really loud and being in quiet room it is noticeable.

Is there anything I can do to stop this? I am only using the web and not running any other programs.

Also I have noticed the touchscreen fails to respond for no particular reason. I don't know if there is a pattern but it is frustrating when it just stops for no reason and then sometimes just works again.

Looking at these forums it seems like it is a common problem with the Toshiba. I have a few days before I can return so if these are not solved I think I might just go form the Samsun ATIV Book 9 Lite instead.


Answer:Satellite U920T-11C fan noise and touchscreen fails sometimes

> It happens about 15 mins into using the web and then goes on and off every 5 mins or so. It is really loud and being in quiet room it is noticeable.

I assume the noise is coming from the fans which need to run faster in case the internal temperature would increase.
What you could do is to change the cooling module performance in single power plan.
You could also decrease the CPU performance. This would lead to smaller heat dissipation and the fans would slow down.

> Also I have noticed the touchscreen fails to respond for no particular reason. I don't know if there is a pattern but it is frustrating when it just stops for no reason and then sometimes just works again

You could try to calibrate the digitizer
Go to control panel (Windows key + X -> control panel) -> ?Tablet PC setting?.

The first tab ?Display? contains options like ?Configure the pen and touch display?.
Here you should be able to start Setup and to identify the touch screen.

The first option should contain ?1 internal LCD?
At the bottom you could find button to calibrate and reset the settings for this internal LCD.

But it could be also an hardware malfunction. I cannot say for sure why this happens but maybe an technician should take a look on the hardware.

Answer:Satellite U920T-10J: microphone and touchscreen not working

Regarding the touchscreen issue:
Does it happen while the screen is pushed up?

I read about the similar issue in different thread and this problem could be related to lose connection.

But check firstly this workaround:
1. Window+run
2 .type services.msc
3. go to Human interface device access
4. right click --->property---->start up type----->automatic (delay start)

But if this will not work, the issue could be caused due to hardware malfunction and such kind of issues must be fixed by authorized service provider.

Regarding the internal mic issue:
Please check if internal mic appears in control panel – sound – recording device
Check also whether all recording device are enabled. Click right and ensure that both options “show disabled devices” / “show hidden devices” were marked.

Also the Skype sound settings should be checked. The internal mic should be chosen as default mic.

I'm unsure exaclty when it started to malfunction.
I installed the Windows 8.1 some months ago and had some problem with the wireless card in the beginning, but the issue with the touch screen just appeard this week.

Is this a hardware or software issue?

Answer:Satellite U920T - Touch screen not working


To be honest there are no special drivers to control the touchscreen.
The driver is provided by Windows system.

I think you should recover the notebook back to factory settings but I?m afraid this will not solve the issue. It smells like hardware related problem since I found some threads here in this forum about the touchscreen malfunction and mostly the issue could be solved by service agents.

By the way: Before running the recovery process try to configure the pen and touch display.
Go to control panel (Windows key + X -> control panel) -> ?Tablet PC setting?.
The first tab ?Display? contains options like ?Configure the pen and touch display?.
Here you should be able to start Setup and to identify the touch screen.
The first option should contain ?1 internal LCD?
At the bottom you could find button to calibrate and reset the settings for this internal LCD.

This means that there is nothing wrong with the graphic chip on the motherboard but probably the connection between the display and motherboard isn?t OK or maybe the internal display malfunctions.

Fact is that this is a hardware problem and you should contact the Toshiba authorized service provider in your country to get it fixed.
If warranty is valid, the notebook should be repaired free of charge.

I have just purchased a Satellite U920T. It is running very slow internet speeds. Speedtest generally shows between 1 and 2mbps. I have tried other laptops sitting next to it I can get speeds of 18-20mbps.

Is there a driver upgrade that will fix this or is there a hardware fault that will need repair?

Answer:Satellite U920T/01Y - very slow internet speed

Hardware fault?
I doubt?

First of all it would be interesting to know what connection do you use? Lan or WLan?

Secondly: was the notebook connected to the AC adaptor or its running with battery power?

Thirdly: the internet speed depends on the internet connection, server and all the devices which shares the same line? so if more notebooks and other devices are connected to the same router, the data throughput might be lower?

Answer:Satellite U920T-11C: How to insert additional RAM modules?

The Satellite U920T memory is not user upgradable. This means that if you would like to upgrade the memory, you should contact a Toshiba authorized service provider for assistance.
In case you would try to disassemble the notebook by youself, you would lose the warranty validity.

But from my knowledge the Satellite U920T series supports only ONE memory slot and only one memory module (max 8GB RAM) can be installed. So even if you would like to upgrade the memory, you are limited to 8GB RAM.

I have a Satellite M40 and today I had the bad idea to use the Toshiba SD card reader.

I inserted the card into the slot and it went deep into it. Trying to get it back only resulted in pushing it farther in.

Now the cards is aprox. 2cm inside the slot and there is no way to get it out.

This must be a joke. Please tell me where the secret button is to get that card out of there. I give up, really...


Answer:Satellite M40 - SD card stuck in SD Card Reader

Hi Fritz,

Appears a bit strange to me, that your SD card is really 2cm deep inside the slot. The normal procedure is to put the card into the reader slot until it snaps in and makes a kind of click sound. To remove the card, simply push it in again and it slides out a bit, so you can grab and pull it out.

Does the card fit in properly? What type of card do you use? Because some smaller ones, used in, for example mobile phones, need first to be put into an adaptor.

Hello, Good morning/ evening ...
I'm using ( Satellite U920T) and recently upgraded my tablet to Windows 10
but after that, the function keys, volume, brightness, FN key, and even the backlight doesn't work anymore !!

I have tried to recover the system and to update driver's software but nothing worked ..

I use these keys all the time and now it's really hard without them !!

What's the problem? what should I do?

Answer:Satellite U920T - Function keys not working after update to Win 10

The problem is that Satellite U920T isn’t listed as Win 10 supported unit and therefore the Win 10 Toshiba drivers and software which controls the FN keys isn’t released.
But as far as I know to use the FN keys, the Toshiba System driver as well as Flash Card Support Utility must be installed.

For all Toshiba Win 10 supported units, the drivers can be downloaded from this page:

Maybe you could try the drivers released for other Win 10 supported notebook models…
I’m not quite sure if the software will be fully compatible with your U920T model but its definitely worth a try…

Hi Folks,

is there some one who has WIDI working? AFAIC there was a WIDI Symbol in Device Manager @W7, after upgrading to W8.1 there is no way to get it work.

Trying to use Intel Display Driver fails because customized toshiba Driver, the latest Toshiba Driver is dated with 28.10.2013 that should be an early W8.1 Driver if not W7.

Is this something like the Broadcom GNSS Feature? Build in but still not usable?

Answer:Satellite U920T-100 PSUL1E - WIDI is not working after Win 8.1 upgrade


According to Toshiba information which I found in the technical support bulletin document, the Intel Wireless Display is no longer supported on Windows 8.1, but you may be able to connect to external display wirelessly, if your computer supports Miracast?.

Here the link to the doc:

Important notice for users of Wireless Display (WiDi)

By the way: the Intel display driver can be installed and updated but you have to do that within the device manager. You have to download an zip package containing single driver files and then you could update the driver using the advanced procedure within the device manager which allows you to choose the driver folder containing the single files.

Hi Forum,

I am new here and am having a problem I can't solve by my own, so am asking for help.
I am using a Toschiba Satellite U920T-100 since more than a year.

Since around 1 week, once I slide up the display to have access to keyboard, the touchscreen does not work anymore. Once folded (keyboard hidden) touchscreen works.
I downloaded most of the drivers, re-istalled, even did a "set back" to cancel last Windows Update... etc.

Trying to modify touchscreen settings under control panel, I receive a message "touch- and pen settings are not available. contact pc-manufacturer (error = 0)"

Does anybody have an idea what to do?

Ane more, but might not be connected to the problem above: Under device manager, "INTEL WiUSB" entry shows a yellow exclamation mark.

Would be great if someone could help. Thanks!


Answer:Satellite U920T - Touchscreen disabled when display is slided out

I have a Satellite U920t.

When I powered up this morning, Windows displayed a message "Keep your PC on until this is done. Installing update I of 5...".

This status stayed on for ages, in fact, I left it on for hours hoping that it was a large update file, I even went out shopping and when I got back home, it was still displaying the same.

I tried pressing ALT-DEL, but nothing happened. I then powered the PC down, left it for a few minutes and powered it back up, but the PC just came straight back up with the same update message!!!

I also noticed that after the PC was supposedly powered off, the system drive LED would blink on and off intermittently as though it is actually still running or locked.

Bearing in mind that this PC uses solid state SSD drive, and I have no way to remove power from the unit completely, I suppose that I am actually not turning the process off.

Can anyone tell me how I can get this PC out of this loop and get my PC back working again please?

I tried looking up the web on another PC, but all the information seems all over the place.

I presume that this is really a Microsoft issue, but I would really love to know how to get back into my PC again.


Answer:Satellite U920t: Win update - Unable to reboot even when power off/on


Did you try to press and hold the power button 4 seconds long?
Usually this should interrupt the loop process.

Try also this:
Power up the unit and press F12 button. Now you should see an boot menu where you could choose certain devices. Last option should be HDD recovery.

Chosing this HDD Recovery option would allow you to reset the system back to the factory settings.
Check it out!

I tested several headphones und different settings of the software. I also tried installing all Windowsupdates and the driver updates incl BIOS from the Toshiba homepage nad drivers from realtek.
Now i reinstalled Windows but the problem still exists.
I still thinks is a driver problem but have no idea what to do now.

I hope for fast help

regards 7even

Answer:Satellite U920T - sound with headphones quiet and distorted

That?s really strange but I think there is problem with some wrong settings.
I don't know how do you test your headphones but make some test with browser player.
Open Internet Explorer and open this test page. Start for instance my favourite In the Mix radio and when music runs click with left mouse button on speaker icon and open option Mixer.
Your IE will be listed there. You can move volume level for speakers but for IE too.
Set both of them on the 50% and check if the problem persists.

I use headphones pretty often but I?ve never noticed such problem.
Please test it and send some feedback.

Answer:Card reader updates for Satellite M40

It?s not a software (driver) limitation but a hardware limitation. The card reader?s hardware doesn?t support this kind of cards and a driver update will not help!

Maybe you can buy an external card reader which would support your SDHC memory cards.
Such external card readers are not expensive and you can connect to the notebook?s USB ports

Tablet PC setting in the control panel also disappear once the keyboard ist out..

I tried reinstalling the driver.
I also did a windows 8 refresh (no backup unfortunately)

Any ideas?

Thank you for your help.

Answer:Satellite U920T - when I slide out the keyboard touchscreen no longer works

> Tablet PC setting in the control panel also disappear once the keyboard ist out..
I assume this should be OK since the tablet PC settings should be available only if the notebook is used in ?tablet mode?

The point is that this notebook can be used in three different modes.
1) tablet mode -> the keyboard and touchpad are pulled in and only touchscreen can be used
2) laptop mode -> the keyboard and touchpad are pulled out
3) photography mode -> keyboard is pulled in but touchpad is pulled out and can be used as well as the touchscreen.

I?m not quite sure if the ?orientation lock button? (on the left side) would affect the touchscreen but fact is that using this button the automatic rotation of the screen orientation can be enabled or disabled.
If you are operating the computer in laptop or in photography mode, the screen orientation will always be in Landscape mode.

Please check also if the touch display has been calibrated properly
Go to control panel (win key + x control panel) -> Tablet PC settings

Here you will find the first tab called ?Display?
Click on ?Setup? button to start the setup where you could identify the touchscreen
In bottom area called ?display options? you could calibrate the touch display.

I don?t understand why you are not satisfied with the consumer service but fact is that in case of hardware problems, you should always contact the local Toshiba authorized service provider which is available in your country.

How to now if it?s really an hardware problem or maybe just an software issue (corrupt system)?
There is a very simple method and workaround:
In most cases if you recover the notebook back to the factory settings, the software issues should be fixed the notebook should work properly.

In case the recovery does not solve the notebook problems, the notebook?s hardware might be affected. In such case (as already mentioned above) you will need additional help from notebook engineer.

Hello everybody,

I just bought a "half" of an U920T: a laptop without the display(which was literally ripped off, you could see the bent hinges and what is left of the cable).
It's a great piece of hardware and I can use it with an external monitor, thanks to the HDMI connection.

What is the problem?
I only get video signal on the HDMI display, when windows(10) is loaded.

What do I want?
I would very much like to access the bios settings and set the primary output to HDMI, if possible.

I have already tried:
- removed the display cable from the mainboard
- using the F4 and the Fn+F4 to switch between displays. (it only works in windows)
- using the Toshiba System Settings Windows App. (there is no "video output" setting there)

Would any of you who have a similar model be so kind as to:
1. Check their bios to see if the option is available?
2. Upload a picture with the location of this setting in bios, or even better a video?

Thank you!!

I’m afraid the worst case is a hardware malfunction and I guess your Satellite U920T touch screen malfunctions.

I read in other thread about the similar issue and it looks like the service engineers needs to be contacted in order to solve such touch screen problems.

I don’t know if you could ask your dealer for a unit replacement but in case the dealer would not replace the notebook, get in contact with an Toshiba ASP in your country to fix it.

For me it looks like a loose connection somewhere between the display and the motherboard.

Your posting is very confusing.
> Until a couple of weeks ago all good, then noticed the dvd/cd did not recognized and disc in it.
Well, there are many reasons for that; it could be possible that inserted disk is not fully compatible. Try different disks from different manufacturers.
It could be also possible that laser lens of the ODD is dirty. In such case you could clean it using a cotton-wool tip and alcohol. In my case this helped.

> The card reader cannot find anything on the card (and yes the card was full).
Did you use a compatible card? The notebook handles these cards:
SD Card 8MB - 2GB
SDHC Card - 4GB
xD picture card - 16MB-2GB
Memory Stick - 8MB-256MB
Memory Stick Pro - 256MB-2GB
MultiMediaCard - 8MB-1GB
miniSD (with SD adapter) - 32MB-2GB

I would also recommend to format the card and to copy some files from computer and then to test this.
You could also reinstall and update the driver for card reader controller...

> The usb scanner is recognized as a external memory card
Cannot believe that? You should use a scanner software (should be provided with the scanner) and should test this device. By the way; mostly a scanner driver needs to be installed in order to use this?

Hi All,

I have a new Toshiba P300-1C9, well six months old, and have just for the first time tried an SD card in the digital media card slot.
The card is not showing in "my computer". In device manager it is showing with the yellow fault sign warning of a problem.
Double clicking it gives this message "This device cannot start code 10" In Disc Management the card is not listed in the upper pane but is showing as a drive in the lower pane without a drive letter being assigned.

If I try to assign a drive letter I get a message saying the operation failed to complete because the Disc Management console view is not up to date.
It requests refreshing the view using the refresh task. That does nothing.

I have reinstalled the drivers for the SD Card listed under disk drives when the card is in, for the storage Controllers and the Generic volume listed under Storage volumes. Also I have updated the driver for SD host adaptors.

A card format has made no difference. I know the card reader is okay as a few days ago I took an up to date image with Acronis TI and then reinstalled the OS from the recovery media.

Answer:Satellite P300-1C9 - SD Card reader code 10


Generally the Error code 10 means that the device cannot start.
Your card reader is not ready and does not run and therefore the SD card cannot be used and is not recognized in ?My Computer?.

In most cases the driver update/reinstallation should help to sort put this issue.
The Satellite P300-1C9 belongs to the PSPCCE series.

The Toshiba European driver page provides the Card Reader Controller driver for this notebook model. This is the driver which controls the SD card slot.

I recommend downloading this driver. Then access the device manager and uninstall the previous installed driver. Then reboot the notebook.
After new reboot the OS should search for a new device and should ask for the necessary driver.
Then you should point to the driver which you have downloaded and should finish the installation.

Usually this should solve your problem.

I have Satellite L300-17l. I wonder whats that thing on the left side next to the 2 USB slots - is it a card reader?
It has a lid that can be pushed inside...Some friends told me that this is the slot for the memory card reader and all I need to do is buy a card reader and install it in this slot.

Is that true ?

Answer:Satellite L300-17l - memory card reader


Please don't be mad on me but in ?user?s manuals? you can find chapter called ?The grand tour?.
There you can find description for each port and slot on your notebook.

Please check it out. If you still have questions about it please let us know.

BTW: I don't know what do you understand under memory card reader but check please front side of your notebook. There you can find ?Multiple digital media card slot?. The description about this slot you can find on page 34.

Where can I find the drivers for the SD card reader? There isn't one in the list of all drivers of the M70-series.

Answer:Satellite M70-375: Where to find the SD card reader driver?

I have checked information?s about this unit and it seems that the Satellite M70-375 has a number PSM70E-xxx.
Firstly you have to choose the right driver category because there are two Satellite M70 series.
Furthermore there is no own SD card driver available. You have to install the cardbus driver.
This driver is also responsible for the SD card usage.

Im wanting to purchase a new laptop and came across the 'Toshiba Satellite P100-429'. It was the perfect laptop! However, when i searched over the internet for a detailed technical spec, I found that on it states that there is no memory card reader:

Yet on other websites it states that there is a 5-in-1 card reader including Toshiba themselves. So is it possible to have the same model laptop but with a different spec? or is it a typing error on the pixmania website? Thanks

Answer:Does Satellite P100-429 support the 5-in-1 card reader?

> ?is it possible to have the same model laptop but with a different spec?
Of course, many notebooks from the same series were delivered with different hardware specifications? this is nothing unusual.

For example the express card slot, dvi video out port or the bride media adapter slot are available on certain models.
I would trust in Toshiba website and this model should support the ExpressCard slot and PCMCIA Type-II slot.
The SD-Card slot, Compact Flash Card slot and Smart-Card Reader are not available on this model?

Hi everyone,

i bought a Toshiba Satellite A300-1MX back in October 2008, and now i wanted to buy an SDHC card, but I was wondering whether my laptop would support this "new"-ish card. The reason I want an SDHC is because it comes in bigger volumes.

So do you know if my laptop can read SDHC cards?

Thanks so much,



Answer:SDHC card reader in Satellite A300-1MX?

The Satellite Satellite A300-1MX card reader supports these cards:

SD Card: 8MB-2GB

SDHC Card: 4GB-16GB

xD picture card: 16MB-2GB

Memory Stick: 8MB-256MB

Ive been having a bit of trouble with my card reader on my A110-275. Whenever i put in an SD card, the light flashes to say it recognises it but no matter what i do i can't seem to load it.

I know it's not the card because my Dad has a similar laptop and I have no problems whatsoever with his.

I was wondering if it could be the drivers? Anyone got any info on where to download them?

Thanks :]

Answer:SD Card Reader Not Working on my Satellite Pro P100


Did you change anything on the notebook?
The notebook was delivered with the preinstalled Toshiba recovery image and all drivers and utilities are already preinstalled and you don?t new drivers.

In my opinion you should firstly check if the card is compatible with the notebook.
Are you 100% sure that the notebook card reader support the card?

Hi All,

my 2 yr old U920t laptop/tablet satellite ultrabook has poor battery life. The battery will only last a maximum of 2 hrs before requiring recharging under normal word doc/excel data entry.

Any ideas on how i can improve it?

The Toshiba pc health monitor function continually informs me that I need to replace the battery due to normal wear and tear but I thought the battery being an 'internal' item means it cant be replaced?

If anyone can offer some advice that would be great!

Answer:Satellite U920T - short battery working time after 2 years of usage


In my opinion there is no some kind of ?rule? or ?norm? about battery life in general. On some machines battery hold capacity for longer period of time comparing it with other notebook models.
Fact is that over time battery will lose the capacity and result will be shorter working hours.

You can try to increase working hours changing some power options and shutting off some useless background processes.
Many newer notebook models have newer design where battery cannot be removed so simply and it is placed under the bottom cover but it can be replaced too. One day when you need new one contact nearest Toshiba service provider and they can replace it for you.

Despite having it for 2 days, I'm only getting 1 hour. My laptop gets 6 or 7 hours with the same settings. This is rather disappointing for a tablet as I thought it'd last longer than just a mere hour. Is there a setting I need to change?

And the fan kicks in so often it becomes annoying. It sounds like a small strimmer, or a moped and I'm sure it'll bother students in the college campus library.

Answer:Battery life in Satellite U920T and annoying frequent buzzing fan spinup

>is there a setting I need to change?

According to the Satellite U920T specs page where the details about the battery working time are mentioned, you should be able to use the notebook up to 4 hours running with battery power.
You should know that battery working time depends on notebook usage. Very bright display settings may reduce the battery working time dramatically. Also running heavy performance applications like game or graphic editor tools would decrease the battery working time.

But the notebook seems to be very new and the battery isn?t calibrated therefore I would recommend you to calibrate the battery firstly. The calibration means charging and discharging the battery fully and to repeat this procedure several times in the row? after some days of usage and calibration, the battery should reach the full performance level.

I have tried to connect a Compact Flash reader to the I Link port on my A100. I am using a Sandisk Extreme Firewire Reader and connecting with a 9 pin to 4 pin cable.

Device Manager reveals that the TEXAS INSTRUMENT firewire IEE 1394 BUS CONTROLLER is enabled and working correctly. Unfortunately, my computer cannot see the card. Any ideas ?

Answer:Cannot connect card reader via IEEE1394 to Satellite A100-988

Hi buddy,

did you already activated the smartcard service in "services"? You should activate this service if not already did.

You can reach "services" by clicking START -> Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services -> Smart Card

Then go into that service, start him and make as startup type "automatic".
I hope my hint is helping you with your problem. :)

I have removed Windows Vista from my Satellite Pro A200 in favour of XP Home.
I'm much happier with the machine now but am unable to get any response from the Card Reader. There's no mention of it in the User's Manual that came with the machine.
I can't find any reference to it in the Control Panel's Hardware Manager and nothing changes in there when I insert an SD memory card.

I didn't have cause to try the reader prior to removing Vista, so I don't know if it ever worked... although I imagine that it did.
Running a search for a driver in the download section didn't have any success and this forum has no direct answers.

Does anyone have any idea what I need to do to get this to work?

Popa Mintin.

Answer:Satellite Pro A200: Card Reader does not work after XP installation


I don?t see any serious reasons why your card reader shouldn?t run/function with installed Windows XP.
What you need is the right driver.

The Toshiba driver page provides all Win XP drivers and there is also an XP driver for the multi card reader.

You need a Texas Instruments Flash Media Driver. This is a driver for your Bridge Media Slot.
This slot lets you insert either a SD card, Memory Stick (Pro) or xD picture card.

HI I have a Satellite Pro L300 running Win XP to which I wish to attach a USB Card Reader. I find that I cannot read the 64GB cards. The error is that the card is not formatted. All other cards read correctly. I can place this card reader in my desktop running Win 10 and it works correctly and reads the 64GB cards. This would indicate that the USB Card Reader is working correctly and maybe the problem lies in the USB drivers on the Toshiba. Has anyone else had this problem and found a fix for it. I have just updated the BIOS but no improvement. Thanks

About a year and a half ago i bought my Toshiba Satellite A200-1AX laptop and I'm very pleased with it.
It had Vista on it. While that OS was on, my SD slot worked, but I don't know about the bluetooth since I didn't use it.

A bit of time passed and I removed Vista and now I have Windows XP with sp3.
Everything is fine but the SD slot does not work. The Bluetooth doesn't work as well and it is not listed in the device manager.
I've tried Toshiba Bluetooth stack and when the installation reaches the driver part it doesn't move on.

here is a screenshot of my device manager:

The ones with question marks are not supported by XP as far as I know, correct me if I'm wrong.

Satellite A200-1AX belongs to the PSAE6E series.
It?s equipped with BT module so after the BT stack installation the BT should work fine? you will need to enable it using the FN+F8 keys.

Regarding the SD card reader slot;
You need to install the Flash Media Driver from Texas Instruments. This is the driver for the Bridge Media Slot. This slot lets you insert either a SD card, Memory Stick (Pro) or xD picture card.

By the way; the BIOS should be updated after Win XP installation. There is a BIOS version (5.60-WIN at this time) which is designed especially for Win XP
