Installation and configuration

Where is the driver?

The card reader is a Plug & Go device which means that the system should install the appropriate drivers automatically.


Why does the LED turn on?

The LED will turn on when it is reading the inserted DNI- or smartcard.

How does the card reader function?

The function of the DNIe Card reader device is basically to read the DNI or Smartcard.

Depending on the public service that you want to connect to, a specific program must be installed. These programs are provided by the services themselves and are usually available from the web pages of each of these services.

Solving problems

My new smart card doesn't function.

Make sure the smart card is inserted with the chip facing up.
On newer cards, the chip may be located on the back side, so you need to turn over the card before inserting it in the card slot.
