Firstly, check whether your reader has a flashing or a solid green light when the card is inserted. You are looking to see a solid green light.
If the light continues to flash, then the card reading software (Gemalto) is not installed and/or the security certificates need registering.If you require assistance with this please see related article:
How do I register the security certificates in Gemalto?
To check if you have the card reading (Gemalto) software installed:
1. Click the windows start button.
2. 'All programmes'.
If the Gemalto software does not appear in all programmes, then you will need to install it. You obtain this
software from your sponsoring bank and it is usually provided it to you via a download link in an email or as
a hard copy with your initial card delivery.
