Rockey100 – Rockey200 Windows 7 Drivers problem solved.

February 16, 2011 Leave a comment

I have recently purchased a Rockey200 smart card reader for and I use it as SIM card editor. The interface is produced by The drivers are available for download at

The installation software tells you that you do NOT have to plug the card reader into the USB port until you have installed the driver. I didn’t and even so the card reader appeared as an unknown device and windows could not find the drivers for it and the software package is kinda badly designed as it does not come with any “.inf” (driver information file) file that you can select and install the driver separately.

The solution is to force the drivers manually. Open the Computer Management , select “Device Manager” and find the unidentified device under Card Readers. Right click it , properties, go to the Drivers tab and select “Update Driver”. At the next step select “Browse my Computer for driver software” , and then click “Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer”. On the list ion the left find “OEM” and select “USB CCID Smart Card Reader”. Next , next ok and it should be installed. Now you will see under the Smart Card Readers TWO times the “USB CCID Smart Card Reader”. One in working condition and one in non working condition. Let them as they are.

You can now start using the Rockey200 SIM Editor. This is the only way I could make it work under Windows 7 after a few unsuccessful attempts with other methods.

If you have a better way to do it and make it work properly please let me know as I am out of ideas.
