After experiencing problems with my olympus camera when connecting to the USB port I decided a USB card reader may be the answer, a suggestion made in other threads on this site. When I connect my card reader I have similar problems to my camera problem. The card reader is detected by XP but the default mass storage device driver does not load correctly & cannot be found. Does anyone know why this is or where I can find the required XP driver? The device is supplied with a disc but this is only for use with Win98, as it is expected to use the generic XP drivers.
The disc is only for win98. If you try using it, it comes up with some garble about being written for win95 etc.etc. It is states in the card reader manual: plug in the usb cable & the default mass storage device driver will load on WinXP. I have tried the reader with win98 & it works fine. Any more ideas?
Sp1 is already installed. It seems to me that anything on XP is a pain in the a**e. When I got my scanner that was very difficult to get working but worked first time on Win98. I suppose this is what microsoft calls progress!
