Advent 8212 laptop SD card reader problem

Hi guys, had this machine for about a month now with no problems. It has Vista pre-installed. Tonight I tried to make use of the 4in1 card reader built in to it to read a Sandisk 512mb SD card. However when i put the card in, the computer grinds to a halt until i remove it. It appears to be recognised (the vista new device plugged in noise sounds) and "o2micro sd scsi interface" appears in device manager, however it does not appear as a drive in explorer (in fact it stops the computer app working). I have done a bit of reseach and tried the MS sd rollup package but this did not fix the probem. Can't seem to find any updated drivers from O2micro. I only have the one card so can't test if there is a similar problem with other SD cards or Memory sticks. Any ideas?? Si

Hi mate... if the card reader is built in and non-removable and there are no options for this device in the BIOS, and all USB options (except Wake On options) are enabled in the BIOS, I would say your laptop could be faulty.
You need to try another card to make sure it’s not a media issue first before doing much else.
