    T100 won't read microSD card

    Hi. I'm running Win 8.1 on a T100.

    When I put a microSD card into the microSD card slot, the computer won't recognize it at all. Nothing happens, no error message. I've tried this with three different cards and got nothing.

    However, when I put the cards into a USB card reader, the computer has no problem reading them.

    Any ideas on how to fix this? TIA

    Happened to me with my new 128 GB cards, make sure the card is properly in, then right click 'Start' button > Device Manager > Right Click your PC name in the top and 'Scan for hardware changes', you will see it pop up as detected and it will appear under 'My Computer' too .

    Also let us know what type of card this is brand, make, model, maybe this one is one of those which isn't supported.

    This is weird:

    I put a Kingston 4 GB card in and the computer didn't see it. I put a Kingston 8 GB card in and it was recognized. Then I tried a 16 gB Sandisk and it didn't show up. Then a 32 GB Sandisk and it did show up.

    Then I put the Kingston 4 GB card back in and it showed up. All the cards showed up.

    I guess I have an intermittent problem. Sometimes it reads and sometimes it doesn't.

    If this is the case, and it works and doesn't, I would ask you to go for repair on this or replacement, as it can become quite tedious in the long run. I have tried alot of cards in my built-in card reader from 8 GB, 128 and 32, 64, 128 GB different brands, Ultra/Extreme/Pro and all seem to work fine. If there was something with the card not working or it's file system, it should simply not work, instead of working once and not working later on .
