Re Trouble shooting
If your computer has Elan PCI card reader before, please remove Elan driver and make sure that your computer has the following file

PCMCIA card Drivers Information
Drivers are automatically installed by the Windows when it recognizes a PC Card slot at installation, but often not installed if it doesn't. Typically these drivers are not present on a desktop system since most customers add a PCI to PC Card drive reader well after Windows software is installed on a system.
If you have a retail CD-ROM of the Windows XP/Vista/7/8/10 installation disk, then this isn't an issue since simply inserting the CD-ROM during the new hardware found routine will allow Windows to find and install the correct drivers. However, many end users purchase computers from large vendors with Windows XP/Vista pre-installed and the CD-ROM they get with their system isn't a full copy of Windows (a restore disk) although they paid in full for Windows. In this case the end users needs to contact their system vendor and tell them that they need the "signed Microsoft Windows XP/Vista/7/8/10 drivers for the R5C485, R5C486, R5C843, or PCI1510" depending on which controller their PC Card drive reader uses. The drivers may already be on a system in "C:\\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\pcmcia.sys", and instructing the installation routine to that file may help.
