Make this more clear:

if the SD card reader is using Alcor Micro Corp chip-set. you can use this forum to make it working as Apple Internal SD Card Reader. otherwise, the method won't work.


These laptops use Alcor SD Card Reader:

ASUS-A53SD laptop
Lenovo B480, B580, B485, B490, B590

But most of PC laptops' SD card reader are based on JMicron, Realteck or Ricoh chip-set.
There are no way to make them recognized as Apple Internal SD Card Reader.

i think this method works for old version of OS X but not the latest one. I was successful with this method before, but get KP in 10.11

I've tried this method on El Cap but it didn't work. Is there a known way of getting the Card Reader working for El Cap?

Hi guys,
I have a USB2.0-CRW 0xBDA 0x129 and my OS X is yosemite 10.10.5

if you check the Info.plist inside this file /usr/libexec/SmartCardServices/drivers/ifd-ccid.bundle you will see in it :

ifdFriendlyName : USB2.0-CRW (for me it's line 116)
ifdProductId : 0x129 (i changed)
ifdVendorId : 0xBDA (by default)

now my card is detected

and in IORegExplorer

Hi farfour78lb, how did you do that? I have the same card reader in LG Gram 14 and I'm unable to get to the point where the card is detected. Did you only modify Info.plist in /usr/libexec/SmartCardServices/drivers/ifd-ccid.bundle/Contents or you also modified AppleUSBCardReader.kext ? Could you post here all the modified files
