How to Update the Drivers for a Generic USB Card Reader


Memory cards come in a variety of shapes and sizes. These cards are generally used in digital cameras, cell phones and other portable devices. Once the data is saved onto the card, you must upload the information to a computer via a USB card reader. These readers connect to a computer via USB port and have multiple connections. To keep the card functioning correctly, the latest drivers must be installed on the computer.

  • Go to the USB card reader manufacturer's website.

  • Select "Support," then choose the make and model of USB card reader you are using. The exact phrasing differs depending on the website you are visiting.

  • Select the operating system currently installed on the computer, then click the "update driver" download link. This downloads the driver to your computer.

  • Double-click the downloaded driver. The installation wizard automatically loads. Accept the end-user agreement, then leave the installation name and location as-is. Select "Install." The updated driver for the USB card reader automatically installs onto the computer.
