The time has come to ask for your expertise...I know of no more knowledgeable site, and this problem is driving me nuts. A little backround... Firstly, I know all hardware is working perfectly. Second, I know the USB port on my motherboard is working. Also, ALL other USB devices work fine.
NOW..., I install the 12-in-one card reader, 3.5" drive mount. (I have also tried external readers.) XP will absolutely NOT recognize ANY type of smart cards, various formats, from several cameras. The
'mass storage device" DOES show up when I double click the "green arrow" card icon in the tray. HOWEVER, NOTHING shows up in My Computer, Disk management, Windows Explorer, etc. No drives, drive letters, or anything shows up under "Removable Storage Devices" I guess you can tell by what I DO know about the problem, that I have tried all the elemental stuff. Of course, the drivers are native in XP for these devices. I'm at wit's end.... NO WAY to view pics, use my mp3 devices, etc.
THANK YOU!!! Gary
