XPS 15z SD reader stopped reading SDHC

The title says it all realy, the SD card reader in my new 15z has suddenly stopped recognizing SDHC cards at all.

Regular SD cards are still recognized OK, but an SDHC card does not even pop up a window to say that a card has been inserted any more - it did until earlier this evening.

I managed to read a few files off an 8GB card, had a read failure. Reinserted the card and nothing... I've rebooted numerous time and even tried a system restore back to a restore point from yesterday.

Plugging an external USB SDHC reader sees the various SDHC cards I have being recognised.

Seems an odd one to me.

Hmmm,

No replies in four days - maybe this is an unusual one.

Can anyone point me towards where I can uninstall and reinstall the driver for the card reader in an XPS 15z?

That's the only thing I can think to try at this stage.

Fixed with a reinstall of the card reader driver from the XPS 15z driver download page.
