SD card slot driver issue
So apparently I have this ongoing problem with the driver of my laptop's SD card slot where, every time insert the SD card from my DSLR camera, it always asks me to format it before it can be used and I can assure you that it didn't happen before... well, it happened since July actually but back then it felt no big deal as I just used the USB lead for my camera to access the card's data while it's inside it but prior to this, I always fancied the idea of sticking the card in, view the files contained and import them from there as it's quicker.
My gut feeling tells me that the driver of the SD card slot is probably borked in some way and may have to reinstall it but the problem is... I forgot the name of said driver and I even tried to locate it under Device Manager to no avail. I had it installed since 2016 by the way, so that's one thing I know for sure.
Assistance would be grateful, even though I don't make use of the slot as much as I used to.
