I have no idea why but my card readers on my pc and the printer are not recognised by the computer although the light come on which seems to mean the actual readers work ok I cannot see or find any trace in "my computer" I have not done anything unusual as far as I recall, must admit I am just puzzled ?
can any suggest where to start to look ?? I have tried various cards XD & SD but neither comes up.
However I tried the following I go into "safely remove hardware" and it is shown in there but I still cannot open the card but it gives me the option the eject the card so I clicked that and I get the following message...
"Removable Disc G in currently use
Save any open files on disc or programs before trying again.
If you choose to continue the files will close and you may lose data."
So I chose to continue and it confirms it is now safe to take out the card,
So after I reinsert the card and it loads correctly, strange indeed ??,
the same happens on both the PC card reader and the Printers card reader...
However after a reboot I am back to square one with the above having to do all the above to get a card to be read ..................
Perhaps this info may help someone to advise me, I have check in device manager and all readers are saying they are all working properly.
I was wondering if any one can explain why the above always happens, so to recap the only way I can use the card reader is the cancel the first insertion using safe to remove and reinserting the card and it works ok but it is a rather long winded way ??????????? Any Suggestions
I don't know if this will help but NirSoft has a free utility that can help in sorting USB related issues. The amount of data that windows keeps regarding devices you have used in the past in beyond comprehension. All NirSoft utilities are spyware free.
This program that does not need installation is worth looking at just to see what windows does keep.
