    I have a Dell Inspiron 546S, Windows Vista Home Premium, 64-bit OS.

    Up until today, I have been able to load photos from my SD memory card through the built in card reader on the tower. I've always had to either put it in just right or wiggle it a touch in order for the computer to recognize the card. Today, nothing works. I've wiggled and jiggled, stuck it straight in, pulled it half out, done the hokey pokey, and restarted the computer. Nada, zip, zilch. I finally used the USB cable and that works. It is not a new card, it's one I've been using all along. Nothing has changed in anyway except the the computer suddenly refuses to recognize the card!

    Any suggestions?

    I forgot to mention, the green light does come on, but I don't get the "new device found" sound. It's not in the device manager or anything else. In fact the device manager says it's working "properly."
