    I recently purchased a Dell Inspiron 6000 from a friend, and installed Windows Vista RTM. Everything worked flawlessly except the SD card reader. I've tried to poke around and google all that I possibly could before posting this. I'm unable to utilize the SD reader and I can't figure out why.

    Although they speak of working out of linux, as listed on this website, the SD reader is of Ricoh brand. Additionally, it mentions Secure Digital Host Controller Interface driver.

    While searching on the keywords Secure Digital Host Controller Vista, I see listed right here on Microsoft's website, it says:

    That means (to me), you should be able to use an SD card without ever installing/changing drivers.

    I've taken screen captures of exactly what I have going on if it helps.

    After an SD card has been inserted...
