Does the reader work in another computer? You have provided very little information for helpers to work on. If the card is fine the fault may lie with the reader. Try it in another USB port.

I tried the card reader in another port on my pc but it does not work. I used another card reader in the same pc but that does not work. The card is works in my card reader for my LG tv.

Try updating Media Card Reader Driver and then check if media card reader responds or not.

Thanks & Regards

Thanks for the quick reply. "Try updating the media card reader?" It might as well be in Chinese to me. I'm Randy from "My name is Earl." I'm Barney from "Andy of Mayberry." I'm Archie from "Archie Bunker." I have NO idea whats going on with a pc.
I did look up and found several sites that did give me a solution....but could not figure any of them out:
Right click this
Left click that
Drop the box down
Waaaaaaaaaaaay to wild for me. Maybe if anyone has a sulation....I can understand....hope to hear from you.
I have tried more than one card reader....none have worked.

If other card readers are not working in your system the fault may very well be in your computer. I would be inclined to find out from the service company just what "cleaning" they undertook. If the reader worked prior to it being "serviced" they may very well have created the problem!

Try updating media card reader driver. Like I said before:
Your talking to Randy from "My Name is Earl." I have no idea what you people are talking about. Maybe you can talk me through it....then again....I can't say I would understand. Thanks to everyone for trying.

Do any other USB devices work? It may be that whatever "cleaning up" was done has resulted in the USB ports being disabled. Since you have difficulty interpreting driver update directions I would consider your first port of call should be to whoever did the "Cleaning up".

The advice is the same... take the PC back to the service techs and get them to re-check your machine.
