I have a Psion Netbook Pro running windows CE.net 4.20. The SD card reader does not work. Windows CE indicates the driver for it is not installed. Any idea what SD card reader this device has and where I could get a driver for it. I'm not sure I would know how to install it as I have never really used Windows CE 4.20 before. Thanks for any help someone can provide.

It won't read high capacity SDHC cards...only older SD cards...2Gb or smaller.

Well, there's a way around, at least I think will work even with 64GB microSDXC / SDXC.

First, get a SD to Compact Flash adapter.

Since you can't format microSDXC / SDXC to FAT32 by default on Windows OS, use Ridgecrop Consultants' fat32format GUI version to format the micro SDXC / SDXC. http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/index.htm?guiformat.htm (Click on the screenshot to download their site).

Then insert the microSDXC / SDXC to SD to Compact Flash adapter.

Lastly, insert it to the Netbook Pro's Compact Flash slot.

Note: This method has been tested only with Sigmarion 3, which is running Windows CE .NET 4.1, so please proceed with your own risk. (Especially when you format, don't format the wrong drive! )

Note2: There will be a 4GB file size limit, but I think you should be find since Windows CE doesn't have that much RAM to begin with....

Thank you for the help. Once I put the correct SD card in it, it worked.
