Safely Removal Hardware Card Reader
19th Dec 2005
A few questions -
(mine is an internal card reader - comes with the cpu when i bought it..) the puzzling thing is, when i do not plug in my usb wire, the safely remove hardware utility will be shown on the bottom right hand corner.
What do you mean Came with CPU ??
CPU (Central Processing Unit) The computing part of the computer. Also called the "processor," it is made up of the control unit and ALU. A personal computer CPU is a single microprocessor chip. A minicomputer CPU is contained on one or more printed circuit boards. A mainframe CPU is made up of several boards.
If Card Reader is an [Internal] Device Then the unit is probably connected via of [Internal USB] Port On the Motherboard No external USB cable required -
I Do not know what you mean when you talk about connecting [USB Wire] with respect to [Internal Reader]
Notes on Card Readers
[Device Manager] treats [Card Readers] as [Mass Storage Device] When you Insert a [Card] It is the same as if you inserted a [Disk] into your drive To safely remove Use the [Software Eject] Mode
1- Open [My Computer]
2- Right Click on the [Highlighted] Card Reader Drive
3- Click [Eject] on Pop up Menu
4- Now you can remove [Card] from Reader
To place an [Icon] on your Desktop:
1- Open [My Computer]
2- Right Click on Drive that you want on [Desktop]
3- Click on [Create Shortcut]
4- Click on [Yes] Message will pop up [Do you want a shortcut on Desktop]
Then all you have to do would be Right Click this [Icon] & then Click [Eject] when you want to remove Card from Reader
When Windows starts up There should be an [Unplug or Eject Hardware] Icon on [Start Menu Tray] at bottom of [Display Screen] You can use this to eject when removing Card from Reader
For External Card Readers This Icon will appear when Connecting USB Cable to Reader -
Now you have to be [Careful] when [Plugging In] The [Card] into the Reader You want to do a [Positive] Connection Not a [Shaky] Connection where you get a [Connection] [Disconnect] [Reconnect] This will be the same as [Proper Connection] & [Improper Disconnect] & cause your [Hardware] to [Not Be Recognized] by [Device Manager] & to disappear from [My Computer] TRY NOT TO BOUNCE CONNECTION You just have to [Practice] to obtain the [Proper Touch] when [Plugging In] the Card -
Restart PC Practice Inserting & Removing [Memory Cards] into [Reader] And Use [Eject] Mode before removing Card
If you have [Zip Drives] or [CD Drives] You should use the [Software Eject] also instead of the [Hardware Eject] The OS will select the proper ejection time
Try practicing this & post back if you need more help I think this should help with problem It is easier to explain this with a visual media
