    This is with reference to an earlier post that is now locked:
    https://forums.techguy.org/threads/...-pc-doesnt-recognize-the-memory-stick.701636/

    I recently tried to access an old Compact Flash card using the same card reader as the post above (green light on reader for CF option, Windows XP), and had the same problem. Had not accessed/used both the card or reader in a while but the last I used both (about 5 years ago) they seemed to work fine. I tried the workaround suggested at the end of the above thread but my device does not show up under 'Disk Management' (neither in the top or bottom windows). I've also tried plugging in the reader & card into a Windows 7 machine and a Macbook, both with same results (CF light on card reader is green, but neither machine recognizes the USB device). Help appreciated. Thanks!
