    I just received a SCM Smart Card Reader/Writer, model SCR201, and it will not start on my computer. I put it in my wife's Gateway, and it works fine. Main difference is she has IE6, and i have IE7. Any help on this one? I already tried installing the driver from the manufacturer, which was of course to no avail. Now it won't let me roll-back to the previous "Windows Driver".

    Is this a USB card reader? If so try another port or disconnect one that is working and try that port.

    It's a PCMCIA card.

    The device shows up, like it installed correctly, but it just won't start. I have the drivers from driverguide, and those didn't help either.

    How old is your Laptop? Is it under warranty? Does anything else work in that PCMCIA slot?

    Hey I have the same problem with my SCR 201. My laptop is from 2005 the card was released in 2002 I believe so that shouldn't be the problem. Also I am able to use my slot for other devices just not this. If you fixed it can you let me know what you did. Or if anyone else has any ideas.
