Do you have a card reader?

  Petesilver 21:06 19 Dec 2010

Yes I had one built in to my desk top

but this problem has only started after a couple of months (its a 50 to 1 I think)

4 ports on the reader?

  Petesilver 23:40 19 Dec 2010

Yes there are 4 ports..........

but if I plug in a USB memery stick it selects one of the 4 icons

Mines the same (XP) if you (or windows) has allocated a letter to the drives (port) then this is why you have these shown in disk management or (My) Computer
