    I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop and run Windows XP. my memory card slot recently stopped working. I used to be able to insert my memory card from my digital camera and download my pictures and now it no longer works. It doesn't even show up under My Computer under removable storage. Please help!

    Put a card in it and:

    Look in Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager

    Expand the "Universal Serial Bus controllers" and see if a USB mass storage device is listed.

    Also look to see no yellow ? or ! are shown, indicating missing drivers.
