    Hi,
    I have been using my Sony Memory Stick Reader MSAC-US1 for over a year now. I had to do a "format and recovery" on my PC Win98SE and now am trying to get all my programs reloaded and on the machine. I plugged the memory stick reader into it's USB port, put in the "Driver Software" CD for this Memory Stick Reader/Writer, and it appeared to go through the Wizard downloading. I clicked yes to everything, it said the PC had to shut down and restart, I clicked yes, when it restarted a little box said it was building a new driver. Well, once I was back on, I pushed the memory stick into the reader, looked in "My Computer", and could not find the usual little icon for the "D" drive that I had before the whole format and recovery. I opened my
    "Microsoft Picture It! Express", clicked on all the right things to open, got to the choice of where to look for my pics, and found that there was no "D" in the choices. When I push my memory stick in, a little "access" light briefly comes on and then off as it has in the past whenever I insert the memory stick. Any ideas? Where can I look for this driver "D"??? I really need to get this up and running, and am not sharp enough to know where to begin. I have tried reloading it repeatedly, with no results. Please, please help me. I really can't afford to rebuy this. Thanks
