Smart cards, commonly known as SD Cards are non-volatile, flash memory cards used in portable devices such as digital cameras and some cell phones. The most popular formats today are MiniSD Cards and MicroSD Cards (SD stands for "Secure Digital"), each having a variety of transfer speeds and storage capacity. While many popular laptops and Desktop PCs have built-in card readers, there are also external Card Reader devices that connect via USB. In either case, a Card Reader Driver is the software which enables communication between your Card Reader and your PC or laptop. Missing or corrupt Card Reader Drivers can cause problems with that communication, resulting in your Windows system being completely unable to read or access your card media.
