When PC is first turned on & I want to upload photos from a memory card reader, very often the reader ( a Jessops multiple which should show up as removable discs E,F,G & H)is not found on My Computer. After restarting they appear ! Why is this & can the problem be eliminated ? Thanks

I assume your card reader is USB - try it in a different USB port, sometimes works.

Refresh USB Ports
In device manager Uninstall EVERYTHING under the haeding USB,
reboot the PC let XP find and install new hardware.
Your equipment should now be recognised.
