SD Card reader not working(code 22) - ThinkPad General
Symptom

When I insert the SD Card in the SD Card slot on T420 I can see "Ricoh SD Disk Device" in Device Manager but there is a small icon with an arrow pointing downwards next to it. When I click on Properties, a message "Device is disabled. (Code 22)" is prompted. When I click on Allow, nothing changes the state. The actual driver is from Microsoft from 21.6.2006 version 6.1.7600.16385.

I tried to download latest Lenovo drivers and installation seemed fine, but after restarting my system, the driver remains same like before. I even tried manual install but the Lenovo driver was rejected saying that it is not compatible. In BIOS the reader is allowed and I am using the latast available BIOS version.

  • T420

1.Insert SD card in the reader
