I have been posting this question on Absolute Beginners - but would appreciate any help from this forum. I have a Dell dimension 5150 with an internal flash card reader. Until recently this has been working well. However, over the past few days it is now only reading the card once. If I try to have it read again without shutting down first it just isn't recognised at all. I have tried various different methods to recover this to no avail. I understand if no one can help - but just thought there may be an expert in card readers in Digital World. Thanks. SM :(

DELL HAVE HELPED! THEY HAVE ESTABLISHED THAT I SHOULDN'T BE REMOVING THE CARD 'SAFELY' AS IT IS PLUG AND GO - BY REMOVING THE CARD SAFELY AND NOT IDENIFYING THE RIGHT ONE HAS CAUSED ALL THE PROBLEMS APPARENTLY. ANYWAY - SO FAR SO GOOD. MAY BE BACK! THANK YOU. SM :)
