Disappearing Drives

  Al-Cat 23:19 16 Sep 2004

I have a multiple partitioned hard disk with several instances of XP Pro running. Booting separately to each for different purposes, very succesful apart from one problem.

A 4 in 1 card reader is installed to the internal motherboard USB.

All versions of windows appear to accept the reader, it is present as 4 separate drives as shown in Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device
Manager. But the drives do not appear in 'My Computer' or 'Windows Explorer' so are not accessable. This is a real pain as I cannot download images from my camera card. It used to work I cannot correlate any change with the problem appearing.

Any ideas please
