I just replaced the hard disc in my Satellite A505-S6025. I purchased System Recovery discs from Toshiba. I re-installed Windows 7 (64 bit) from the recovery discs. After the re-install, the SD card slot does not recognize my SD card. I was able to read the SD card on another computer.
The Hardware Device Manager shows a Yellow Triangle beside the three devices -
Ricoh PCIe Memory Stick Host Controller
Ricoh PCIe SD/MMC Host Controller
Ricoh PCIe xD-Picture Card Controller
Any ideas on how to fix this issue? I expected the recovery discs to completely re-build the entire system. Not yet.

Disc drive is:
HDD P/N: HN-M160MBB
I applied some update for some entworking issues after installing this drive. That fixed the networking issues.

I see your other thread now, Don. There's a lot you didn't tell us!
Did you make sure this hotfix is installed?
And did you verify the partition boundaries?

The Windows Hotfix has already been applied. I was informed of this by Windows Update when I tried to apply it.
The Samsung tool link referenced by you provided no way to download the tool. The link described the benefits, but I found no active link to actually download the tool.
What is my next step?

I read the notes about the utilty. It tells me to NOT use it.
Windows 7/Vista and MacOS already include native support for Advanced Format (4K sectors) and so do not require this utility. Do not use it.
Next step to diagnose my SD card issue?

It tells me to NOT use it.
They are talking about the installation of Windows. You restored the hard drive. But I guess bad partition boundaries will just make Windows run slow. So we don't really care about that.
Is the SD card the only problem you're having now after installing the newer Intel storage driver?
Try reinstalling the card-reader driver.
