cannot find card reader

I'm trying to download the photos on my smart card through my firewire card reader. Two days ago when I tried this I was successful.

I swap out two PCMIA (?) cards -- one for my wireless connection and one for the card reader. In the intervening 48 hour period I swapped the cards out if this makes any difference. It is the only intervening variable I can think of between the first successful try and this last failed attempt.

I checked one of the utilities in my control panel in windows and the card reader is recognized by windows as operational. When I go to Adobe Photoshop Elements V.3, however, and try to open files from the "camera/card reader," I get the message "Device cannot be found."

I have tried the usual list of suspects, i.e., making sure the card reader and card were correctly installed, rebooting the computer after reattaching the aforementioned, and various and sundry things -- all to no avail.

Does anyone know have any suggestions. I suspect this is any easy fix but I am not sure what rock to look under. All the search engines I have tried in "Help" and various tech support pages do not come close to answering this riddle.

If you have any good ideas, thanks for your time.

P.S. I have a toshiba satellite A-15 laptop and I'm using Win XP Home Edition.
