Have you looked at Device Manager (Right click on My computer, choose properties>hardware>device manager and click on the computer symbol at the top then Action>Scan for hardware changes ans see if anything comes up with yellow question marks

The card will not work because the card reader has not been recognised by your system and therefore doesn't exist.

If you have driver for the card reader, reinstall it and reboot, this may clear the problem.

Have a look inside and make sure all the relevant wiring from the reader is conected securely.

Otherwise, do a Windows repair.

Do you have a CD with drivers for the card? if so you could go to control panel>add hardware and follow the wizard

  chrisjohn 20:05 25 Jun 2006

no ,it is a bell pc no cd came with it.

When you say 'when I plug it in they all disappear' do you mean before you introduce a memory card, the icons for the card reader are present?

If so, try another memory card, the fact that the icons appear means that the system is ok.

The drivers are on the motherboard CD, if you do not have one you need to go to the motherboard web site and download the drivers
