    I have a 5-in-1 card reader, ive tried it in an XP computer and now my Windows 7 computer - it installs, lights up when you insert and SD card, windows plays a sound to indicate its detected, when I go into My Computer its there and its called REMOVABLE DRIVE F: - when I double click on it, it says "PLEASE INSERT A DISK INTO REMOVABLE DISK"..?

    the card is from my camera and works in a USB Adapter/reader - its not write protected either?

    can anyone help get this working?


    thanks

    i have had a few of these with the same symptoms........they are made so cheap alot of them work 1 or 2 times then dead

    its not even worth sending them back to the vendor (if its new).............. i just steer clear of 'em
