    I have a Delkin Devices Reader-12 and trying to install it on Windows 98. I have installed everything and plugged in to USB. It is supposed to appear as a Removable Disk Drive in My Computer, but when I go there it does not show up. I went to my Device Manager to see if it was being recognized. It shows up under "Universal Serial Bus Controllers" and says it is working properly. When I look under "Disk Drives" it does not show up!

    I have a A:, C:, and 2 CD-ROMS labeled F and G. I tried remapping the CD-ROMS to another letter which worked fine but the reader still wouldn't show up!!

    Any ideas?

    You said you've installed everything. Does that mean you installed the drivers for the device, or just hooked it up?

    Drivers here:

    Do you have a card in the reader? According to the docs, it won't show up if it's empty.

    Were any icons created on the desktop or items created in the programs menu (START/PROGRAMS)?

    Some of these utils may require you launch a program before the preipheral device inits.
