If your ROG Ally is not detecting the SD card, start by checking if the SD card itself is faulty. Try using the SD card on another device to see if it works properly.
Check the temperatures
High temperatures can sometimes affect the functionality of the SD card reader. Make sure your ROG Ally is not overheating, as it can contribute to the SD card detection issue.
Switching to the Turbo power mode on your ROG Ally and waiting a few minutes may help in detecting the SD card. Give it a try and see if the SD card is recognized.
Format the SD card
If you can see the SD card but can’t use it, try formatting it as NTFS using the Disk Management tool. This can sometimes resolve compatibility issues and make the SD card usable.
Follow these step-by-step solutions to troubleshoot the SD card detection issue on your ROG Ally.
Update the Card Reader
ROG Ally requires an up-to-date Card Reader driver to recognize and utilize external SD memory cards. Visit the Asus website, select your ROG Ally model, download the latest Card Reader driver, and install it on your device.
Updating the BIOS on your ROG Ally can help resolve various issues, including problems with SD card recognition. Visit the Asus website, select Bios & Firmware, download the BIOS update for your ROG Ally model, and run the installation to update the BIOS.
If the issue of ROG Ally not recognizing the SD card persists, you can try the following additional steps:
Update Windows: Updating your console’s operating system may provide necessary updates that can address SD card recognition issues.
Reset your ROG Ally: If all else fails, resetting your console to factory settings can be a last resort solution. Keep in mind that this will erase all data on your device, so ensure you have backups.
Consider alternatives: Some gamers have successfully resolved the issue by using external SSDs instead of SD cards.
By updating the Card Reader driver, updating the BIOS, and ensuring low temperatures, you can increase the chances of resolving the ROG Ally not detecting SD card issue. If these steps don’t work, consider updating Windows or resetting your ROG Ally as a last resort.
