I have a sd/mmc card reader which plugs into a usb port and which I use to transfer pics from camera to pc. it works seamlessly with my desktop running wxp home but will not work with my laptop running wme.
it shows on my laptop as drive E but when I click on it it says the card is not formatted. however, when I go further it says it can't format the card.
I have loaded the driver 3 times but I still can't see my pictures on the laptop.

this is such a stupid problem but I can't solve it.

Try formatting the card in the camera, not in the PC. Then take a couple of pics and try to use windows explorer to view them on the laptop...

That as you probably know is how it "should" work - the reality may be different.
