Hi All, My mate has recently bought a camcorder with a removable SD Card, then bought a card reader, and plugged it into the USB port, with the SD card in. He also tried to run camcorder by using the USB cable direct without the card reader still no good.
After booting up the PC he noticed that the PC did not come up with the usual 'found new hardware' as it normally does, then after looking into the start, run, browse there was no new drive letter assigned to the card reader and the SD card, repeated the above procedure 5 times still no drive letter, I told him to try another USB port but still the same problem...? can anyone help with this one, Win XP he is using,
My advice to him was maybe the USB are not working so nip into a local comp shop with the cardreader and ask them if they will let you input the SD card via the cardreader on USB and see if that works. 2 Ports only on the rear. Next one, are the USB working, try a webcam or similar on the USB ? Technotiger, will have a bash at that if this is not resolved, thanks as usual
You were right about the host controller in the Bios not being enabled, trouble is now he doesn't know how to enable it ! and of course does not want to upset the settings by making a mistake, is there somewhere in the Bios where a tick box needs enabling ?
Hi again - only just seen your last message. Tell him to navigate to Integrated Peripherals again and to USB Host Controller, then he can change setting by pressing arrow keys (left/right) or + - keys or sometimes page up page down keys. It will not hurt to try them each, in the order I have shown.
