Just install the Dell XP driver for it....run the EXE dont try to manually update...Thats what I have been doing on my 9400...and did it with my 9300 when I had that too...
Are you referring to the same file that ZalmanLeib mentioned? Basically the chipset drivers? I have tried to run that installer as well with no success. Edit:
I did try to run the setup again, this time noticing it says it's for a Ricoh R5C8xx. I searched using the keywords "Ricoh R5C8xx Vista Driver" and came across this Italian site
which appears to have a driver for RC1/RC2. Of course it also appears it's for an Asus motherboard, just my guess anyway.
At any rate, I've tried this using the included installer and it STILL DOESN'T WORK.
I've opened the file Rimmptsk.inf file located in the \MMC\ folder, and it states:
; Windows VISTA Beta installation file
; for installing RICOH SD/MMC (Multi Media Card) driver
; The driver supports R5C823/843 RICOH Controller
Ignoring the Dell driver, and trying all of the methods I've mentioned above (with screenshots), I've tried to install using this beta driver. It's as if Vista totally ignores it and continues to use the built-in Microsoft driver.
I'm getting pretty annoyed that I can't get this operational. Edit:
I found another download
through my previous search. It appears this is an XP driver for the Ricoh R5C841/842 reader. I ran the included installer, and what do ya know? It actually reads the damn card now.
One thing I have noticed (prior to the suggested reboot)... I took existing SD card that contains photos taken from my HP digital camera and inserted it. But it prompts me to format it before I can use it in Windows. This doesn't seem right to me. I was initially worried that it may be corrupt. I checked it with a USB-attached memory card reader and everything still exists on the card.
So maybe it's not entirely solved yet if it doesn't even read the card properly. Ideas?
