How to Update an SDHC Card Reader

Prior to the introduction of Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) in the summer of 2006, SD cards were only available in capacities of 2 gigabytes (GB) or less. Since then, SDHC cards have grown in capacity and popularity. If you have an older computer or card reader, you will need to upgrade your Windows system to gain SDHC compatibility. Instructions
Make sure your card reader is connected to an open USB port on your computer if you are using an external device. If your card reader is built into your system, go to Step 2.

Visit the page on the Microsoft support site that matches your version of Windows [see Resources].


Click “Continue” under “Validation Required” and run the “Validation Tool.” This is necessary to ensure you are installing the correct version on a licensed version of Windows. If everything checks out, a validation code will be provided.

Enter the code in the box on the “validation” page and click “Validate”. Click “Download” when the code is accepted.

Double-click the downloaded file to install the SDHC update, then click “Continue” if the “Permission” screen appears. Click “Install” and restart your computer when finished. Your card reader is up to date.
