I recently purchase a fairly generic card reader with the usual slots, SD/MMC, CF, Memory Stick, etc. When I first plugged it in, my computer detected it, and did the usual "Searching for Drivers" and "Drivers Installed. Your new hardware is ready to use" thing. I didn't use it for a few days, which included a few reboots for various reasons. Then, when I inserted an SD card into the appropriate slot (actually a Micro SD card in an adapter), I couldn't get into My Computer to access it. Every time I would open it, it would just freeze, and I would have to use Task Manger to end the process. I thought that rebooting might help, but then it wouldn't even get to the screen with the little load bar, and it would just stop on a blank screen. I then powered it off, and the next time I started it, it gave me the Safe Mode and Last Known Good Configuration options, but neither worked. I powered it off, and unplugged the card reader, and then Windows finally booted up, but now it won't even detect the card reader ,let alone make itself useful. What am I doing wrong, and what do I do to fix it?
Any help is appreciated.
