I've installed Win2KPro for work related software compatibility. In my device manager I have an unknown PCI Device (yellow "?"). I'm assuming this is the SD Card Reader as that is the only device that is not functioning/responding. Where do I get the driver for the reader as it's not available at Support, neither in XP or 2000 download areas? I've tried running the Dell Notebook System Software, but I get an error message stating that "this computer does not support this operating system."
Dell does not factory install Windows 2000 on the Inspiron 6000, and you will not find a complete set of drivers for that Operating System. I do not know of a Windows 2000 driver for that piece of hardware.
Try this driver for your system, Microsoft Secure Digital I/O. This is for Windows XP and I do not know if it will work with Windows 2000. This is for the Inspiron 9200, but should work on the 6000.
Thanks for the help and link to the file... however, when I run the setup, I get the error "This computer does not support this operating system." Is there a way to extract the files from the .cab files, perhaps I can manually install the drivers?
I have just purchased a Dell Inspiron 6000. I saw that it had an SD memory card slot and so i inserted a memory card from my digital camera, but nothing happened. I dont know if there is supposed to be an auto start or if i have to open it. Im not sure how to access my memory card when its inserted. Can someone help me? Thank you! :smiley happy:
when you got this file, try execute this file. the file will be extracted and install driver automatically.
after driver installed, please check SD Card device on DeviceManager. You can probably find a new device "SDA -Standard Compliant SD Host Controller" in a new category "Secure Digital Host Controllers".
Please Let's try! good luck! I'm waiting your report.
