with some readers, you need to actually put a card in the slot before it will show in my computer.

sometimes this is the operating system being difficult. from windows 2000 onwards many removable drives are automatically found and drivers loaded as the device is plugged in, for those with windows 98 or ME or earlier you may have to down load the drivers from the makers web site, install then enjoy. I assume its a usb device and the usb ports are working.
good luck

1. go to makers web site and see if there are any known problems and solutions.
2. does the card reader actualy work? try it in another computer.
3. does the port you are plugging into work?
4. does microsoft know of any problems with this device or can they offer any solution.

good luck
