Sony Vaio Memory Stick not showing up...

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Hardware' started by Howard Woodard, Jul 17, 2007.

  1. I have a Sony Vaio that came with an internal memory stick reader. I don't
    think I've ever used it, for that matter, I don't know what a memory stick
    is or looks like, but since upgrading from XP Pro sp2 to Vista Ultimate last
    week the memory stick "E Drive" no longer shows up and the rest of my drive
    letters have shifted up by one letter.

    I seem to remember that the driver was named Winbond, or something similar,
    but I'm not entirely certain.

    Does anyone know if that device is supposed to be recognized/supported under
    Vista or not?

    Thanks in advance,

    If you open Device Manager, do you see Unknown Device, or a Question Mark
    icon? You may have to download and install the Memory Technology Driver for
    your particular computer. If you post your computer model name/number, I,
    or someone else, can help you find the driver.

  4. The driver "Winbond Memory Stick Storage (MS) Device Driver" shows up in
    Device Manager under IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers. In properties it says that
    "This device is working properly". Yet I can't find anywhere that the
    device shows up.

    Does this help?
