    Maybe someone knows this....

    Have the CF-19FJGAAAM with Windows 8.1 installed. Everything, everything works, but the SD Slot. On my MK4, the SD card works fine. The SD card worked fine in Windows 7 on the MK2, until I installed 8.1. I run 64 Bit on all. Just to make sure it was still working, I used Linux provided by one of the masters in this forum, Shawn. Under Linux, the SD card works fine under that new release!

    I have tried driver after driver, different configs for both the SD host adapter, and the Storage controller. The big difference on my Mk4 and MK2, the MK4 shows SD Storage Class Controller under Storage Controllers in Device Manager. It does not show this in the MK2, however the other entries are the same.

    Ideas?

    Thanks!!

    Yes, tried this. I disabled driver signing in advanced options, however, it still will not load. A good challenge awaits me!!!

    Hi Shawn,

    Read those threads as part of my research, I went all the way down to just a 128 MB card to see. That is the one I saw in Linux with no problems.

    Somewhere, between Win 7 and Win 8.1, the SD Slot got jacked up in a driver. Win 10 works fine.

    Something is not jiving between the two controllers.

    Okay,

    Been doing many checks all of the recommendations, looked all posts and followed the trail down to this. I have Intel ICH8 Family USB Universal Host Controllers installed on the MK2. Could there lay the issue? I have tried different versions of MK3, 4,5, and 6 SD installs and none have worked. It will not recognize the SD Slot, even though it has power and blinks when I insert a card. The PCMCIA adapters do work, which I believe are on the same board as the SD Slot.

    I am still trouble shooting, but it looks like Win 8.1 does not like something that Win 7 did.

    I'll keep working at it and I appreciate all of the avenues of exploration to get this figured out and offer solutions to others, not only in this forum, but across the board!!!!!

    did you do a clean install of win8.1 or an upgrade from win7?

    The link from Microsoft talks about win8.1 and the sd card.
    It is a known problem of win8.1 not recognizing the sd card. problem for many brands of computers.

    I installed 7, and then upgraded to 8 via disk, then upgraded to 8.1 via downloaded updater. I don't have the 8.1 64 bit hard copy full edition, I was eligible for the upgrade to 8.1 because I have Win 8 Pro.
