SmartCard reader instalation

Posted on 2013-11-08

When I connect an ACR122 Smart Card Reader to my laptop (Windows 7 x64) Windows search for the appropiate driver and the device is recognized and instaled (ready to use). But whenever I mount a smartcard on the reader, Windows creates a Smart Card device and looks for a Generic Smart card driver (ready to use) and for a Smart Card driver (No driver found). And obviously when I dismount the smartcard the Smart Card device is unistaled (not the ACR122 reader).

Anybody knows how can I fix this problem?
