The driver is not compatible with the OS or your Antivirus is blocking it.

Disable antivirus and see if that works.. if not then call 1-877-805-1027 for expert help.

Emachines et1331 card reader driver

You should download the driver again for them and just run it into computer ..The driver it is available on the support site of the manufacturer..
choose teh correct model and the right operation system so that it iwll work proper..
To be sure that the driver it is all you need..just take a look in the device manager ..if the card reader appear under devices but either unrecognized or in yellow with a exclamation sign on it means the devices are working ..but just end the driver ..if you changed the operation system need the drivers for it to match .
by the way ...if you installed windows 7 on 64 ..the drivers should be for 64 system too ..
here are the drivers for this model
download and install the chip-set drivers ..In there should be teh driver for the-card reader too ..
do not be alarmed if the drives are not displayed may be the case that it will display just the one used and when you use them ..Just install the driver s and after that take a look into the device manager and see if they are present there.. to do so click right on computer ..and choose properties and in there select device manager ..If they seam not to be present click right on storage devices..and select scan for hardware changes ..and will add them without driver if they are detected..If no detection is displayed it means the reader is not functional anymore or it cables are disconnected or damaged ..and this is the reason for refusing to load simply do not see any device in the system ..
In this case get another card reader or use an external one ..

Computer can not read my card reader

It is probably an issue with not having the proper drivers for the card reader. The first thing you should try with most computer problems, is rebooting. Shut your PC off with the card reader installed. Leave it off for a full minute and then restart it. If it still isn't recognized by the computer, you will need to install drivers for the card reader. Check the card reader for a brand name, a serial number, or a model number. I did one some time ago and the only information I was able to come up with was "e-machine" and"card reader" .... very generic. Enter your info into Google. As an example, "e-machine 4560A drivers". Or, even a more generic approach such as "card reader drivers" may yield some results. Chances are you will be given a variety of sites that offer drivers.
is also a good site to search. When offered a number of sites, such as with Google, watch to make certain the link that you are clicking on is the actual download link. Often times, site will have advertising for other software.

When you save the file with the drivers, it is usually such that you just double-click on the file and it will install it's self (make sure your card reader is plugged in). Remember where you are saving the file to. If it doesn't automatically install, and go to Control Panel>Add Hardware and the Wizard will direct you. You may have to enter the path to the download. It should then install the drivers.

Its not recognizing my sd card reader

Make sure you can see the Secure Digital host controller and
Texas Instruments PCI GemCore based smartcard controller in the Device Manager. If its missing, re-download the drives from HP.

If you are trying to use a SDHC Memory Card in the reader,
you will need updated Win XP TI drivers as the ones on the HP site
do not support the newer memory cards.

This goes for the nx5000's nx6110's nc6120's and nc6320's.
Updated XP TI drivers are needed

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

Did you install from the Gateway-modified version of the Microsoft Windows CD-ROM, or from a "generic" Microsoft Windows XP disk?

If the latter, then your computer is missing the "device-drivers" for some of the Gateway hardware, namely the wireless adapter, and the M.S.C.

So, access Gateway's web-site, enter your model-name and model-number, and look for "downloads" for Windows (XP? Vista?) for your computer.
Download and install the selected device-drivers, to add support for those devices.

INF error usually occurs if the inf file is missing or the auto run .inf extension file is missing. INF is used to load the auto run of the application that made it possible to be used to any specified application that serves its purpose. So therefore your SD card reader won't show up due to the face that its INF file that is responsible in loading it application is missing. So i recommend that you have to reinstall completely the driver of SD Card reader in order to be able to use the application.

Need drivers

First, of all, we need to check whether your Notebook is having Conexant AC-Link audio or Conexant High Definition audio or not.

Try installing the Conexant AC-Link Audio drivers by downloading them from the link below :

Save the driver file on to the Hard Drive of the Notebook and double click to install it once the download is completed.

However, if you get any errors with installing the file, I recommend you to delete that file and try installing the Microsoft UAA Drivers and HD Audio Drives.

Download the Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture(UAA) Drivers from the link below :

Save the file and double click once it is saved to install the file.

Restart the Computer once the installation is completed.

Now, download the Conexant High Definitino audio drivers from the link below :

Save the file and double click it to install the audio drivers.

Similarly, there are two types of Modems installed in DV1000 series Notebooks and below are the drivers for the same.

Conexant AC97 Soft Data/Fax Modem with SmartCP Driver :

Conexant HDAUDIO Soft Data Fax Modem with SmartCP :
(You need to have the Microsoft UAA Drivers installed before installing this modem drivers)

The Mass Storage Controller in the Device Manager indicates the Card Reader integrated in the Notebook and below are the drivers for both types of card readers available for your series of Notebook :

Ricoh 6-in-1 Card Reader Driver :

Texas Instruments Media Card Reader Driver :

Hope this helps...
