Unable to forward SD card in virtual machine

APPLIES TO:
  • Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac
  • Parallels Desktop 8 for Mac

Symptoms

  • My SD card isn't recognized in Virtual Machine. I use built-in SD Card Reader.

Cause

  • Windows drivers for SD Card Reader are not installed in the virtual machine.

Resolution

  1. Download Boot Camp drivers from here.

  2. Uncompress downloaded archive.

  3. Go to BootCamp > Drivers > Broadcom and install a driver for Broadcom Card Reader.

  4. Connect Apple Card Reader to the virtual machine:

    • In virtual machine menu bar go to Devices > External Devices -> Apple Internal Memory Card Reader.

Note

  1. If there is no Memory Card Reader option, that means that buit-in card reader is connected via PCI interface. Parallels Desktop does not support forwarding PCI devices.
  2. If you use external card reader, please download and install drivers for the appropriate card reader model from the manufacturer web site.
