Actually no. There are many SD Card readers out there on laptops. Some
older models had very specific, proprietary, interfaces for the SD Card
readers, while a USB-connected SD Card reader would work out of the box,
the native, internal one would not, and likely will never, until
somebody reverse engineers the hardware on your laptop.

I've had this on a Toshiba laptop. Everything worked but the internal SD
Card reader. I decided to get over it and use a USB card reader. Never
looked back.
