    Hey guys,

    I can't access my SD card when using the internal MacBook Pro 2023 SD card reader. It will always show:
    "Unable to connect "SD CARD (Virtual Mass Storage)" to "Windows 11" now."
    And yes I checked the knowledgeable article at and did what is stated there but it didn't work.
    I tried formatting the SD card to MS-DOS (FAT32) but this also didn't work.
    I also searched on Google and some answers suggest mounting it as an external device but that doesn't show up.
    Anyone else an idea how to fix this?

    Parallels Desktop Version: 18.2.0 (53488)
    Windows 11 Version: 22H2 (22621.1555)

    You can upgrade to the latest version (19.2.0) which well supports sd reader, but the speed is slow.
