Updating computer graphics driver Cam2 cam chat
In general, we don’t recommend updating hardware drivers unless you have a reason to.
The driver for the SD card reader that came built into your computer is probably just fine.
Windows 7 and 8 provide driver updates via Windows Update, too, but Microsoft is being much more aggressive about this in Windows 10. Even if you install your own hardware drivers, Windows sometimes automatically overwrite them when a new version is available.
Windows is pretty good about not overwriting things like graphics drivers, though—especially if you’ve got a utility from the manufacturer that keeps up with updates.
Device manufacturers create these drivers, and you can obtain drivers straight from the manufacturer of your devices.
Manufacturers also submit drivers to Microsoft for testing and signing, and you can get many drivers from Microsoft through Windows Update.

There’s no reason to obsess about having the latest hardware drivers for every component in your computer.
