Seems to work better if always plugged into the same port.

Assume you XP as operating system?
Check Device manager when it is acting up - are there any Yellow wotsits?
If no unplug and replug it

Another thought - is the Card plugged to the machine direct or through a hub?
If on a hub is it self powered or to the PC direct.
If a hub what other devices are on it?

the device man. shows up no probs.I have a direct feed to the pc. no hub although in my old system it was linked via a hub with no probs when it goes in the blink the the pc comes up with a bubble stating unknown device then I ignore and reboot and there it is a mystery

Possibly a faulty cable then or the device itself
Have you another cable- possibly from a printer or scanner or camera - depends what the device end is like there are several types.
