    Do you have a SD card in your card reader now? Does it show up in the devices listed in "my computer"?

    Have you reinstalled the card-reader drivers from Lenovo's Support and Downloads website?

    When you go to device manager -> Disk drives, do you see something called similar to "RICOH...."? If so right click it and go to properties. Does it say the device is working properly? What is under the driver tab?
