just bought a sandisk multi card reader .everything seems to go ok except for the small fact i cant get it to show as a removable drive in my computer so I cant use it .
I am running windows X P home ,Athlon 1800 xp cpu , and the card reader is plugged into a usb2 port (which is working because my printer and scanner are plugged in there

is the card reader plugged directly into usb port or hub?, did any drivers come with reader ? have tried the add new hardware wizard ? lets eliminate the simpler things first

card plugged into usb2 port on computer (not a hub) drivers for card reader installed --and yes tried adding new hardware wizard

remove reader,uninstall drivers, reboot and see if xp has it's own drivers for it when you plug back in on reboot, (make and model of reader?)

done that --still no sign of it in my computer the card is a sandisk 8 in 1 model sddr 88
