Plug&Play digital camera not recognised

  grumpz 19:32 26 Apr 2003

I run XP.My plug & play digital camera or smart card reader when connected to my machine do not appear as 'removable drive'in 'My Computer'.The 'found new hardware sequence'goes through ending with the message that it is ready to use.What should happen next is that a window opens with options on which programme to use to view the images.This doesn't happen and neither does a removable drive icon appear in 'My computer'.Both the camera and card reader are serviceable as they work perfectly plug & play on friends XP equipped machines.I have reloaded my XP software to no avail.Help appreciated.

Is the smart card plugged into the reader?

Solved my own problem.I have the utilities program TweakI on my machine.It has a security section and in there it is possible to select which drives are displayed in 'My Computer',Drive F was not selected,it is now and the problem has gone away!!!!! Be warned.
