I plugged this into my Win7 system and it was seen and functional in about 60 seconds. For whatever reason my old reader was incompatible with Win7 so it was nice to have that flexibility of use again. Of course my machine has a SD card slot that worked just fine until one of those overnight Microsoft auto-updates and now it doesn’t work. Microsoft states stoutly that it must be some other issue since their auto update couldn’t have done anything damaging. I know it didn’t hurt the hardware but as far as the driver is concerned there is a problem and I have the most recent driver from ACER. So I bought this tiny little reader for a whopping $8.00 on Amazon rather than waste any more time trying to fix a MS generated problem.
