Recently been getting a intermittent problem with my card reader not being recognised. Some days its ok others not. When I check in device manager they (there are two entries) come up as unknown devices.. When they are working there are no such entries. I replaced the card reader and all appeared to working ok..so I put it down to a faulty reader...two weeks later and we are back to square one. Can anyone give me pointers on what to check please...

an update..if Itry to update the drivers it says drivers not foune..! Mr fix it dived in and offered to fix the problem..which it failed to do for the same reason code..but then suggested code 43 which says a device has failed and has been stopped...I then uninstalled the two entries and rebooted...every thing working as it should be...

Still the question though why should they fail intermittently..?
