unable to access card reader

  LizSan 16:20 15 Feb 04

I have a microstar computer with a card reader installed which I use to load my digital photos onto my computer from my compact card. Until recently this has worked well. For some reason I am unable to access this the last few days. ie nothing happens when I insert my compact card into it's slot whereas previously the program to transfer or view photos started automatically. Also when I try to access this via "my Computer" this facility is no longer visible. Can someone please advise as to how I regain this facility on my computer?

Is there any power lights on it? Have you checked the wires? It may be worth unplugging it and plugging it back in. This may involved opening up your pc if it is a internal reader.

Hi, This is only a wild guess, but if you leave your computer on 24/7 and you employed the safe to remove hardware icon when you removed your card, the drive will not be recognised until you re-boot your system. Cheers, Bill
