Memory card reader not found

  Creditman 21:59 11 Jul 2005

I put memory card into universal card reader to upload photos (windows XP home), but nothing happened. On My Computer, no e/drive device is showing. I went to View System Info>Hardware>Device Manager & looked at USB controllers. All seem OK except for the USB Mass Storage Device, which has a yellow blob over the icon. The message under Properties for this is "windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware because there is a duplicate device already running in the system (Code 42)". I presume this is related to the card reader not being recognized, but I can't understand it ! Nothing has changed on my system since I last uploaded photos a few days ago. Can anyone help please ? Many thanks

Click on the device with 'yellow blob', then click remove. Now restart the PC and Windows should reload the driver that you removed.

Amazing ! Back to normal, many thanks. Can you explain (in simple terms)what had happened ?

It would appear that one of the driver files somehow got corrupted. I can't say how or why, just that things like this do happen sometimes.

Glad you're sorted anyway.
