hi guys,

i have just bought a sd card reader which is suppose to connect to my pc through my usb port. my operating system is windows xp which should pick up the hardware and install the driver, but my computer doesnt appear to be picking up on anything, it just starts the pc up and i dont get the message:
'new hardware found'

whats going on here

thanks

Put a card in the card reader and open windows explorer - it should be there as a removable disk or something like that. XP does not need the drivers.

sorry but even after i insert the card, nothing appears in explorer

Could be a faulty reader. Can you try it on another pc? Or try another card?
