Problem reading SD card

Hello

A while ago my Kodak camera dock stopped working, so I got an SD reader so as I could get at the pictures.

After plugging the reader in, when I look in Device Manager there is a yellow question mark by the reader.

When I click properties, it says...

Windows cannot determine the settings for this device. Consult the documentation that came with this device and use the Resource tab to set the configuration. (Code 34)

The reader was a generic device and had no documentation.

How do I determine the right configuration??

Thank you

Richard

"When I look in Device Manager there is a yellow question mark by the reader".

Right click on your card in Device Manager and select Update Driver Software

It would probably help if you stated what your operating system is and the brand and model of card reader.

Is this an external card reader connected via USB? Try deleting the driver in Device Manager - reboot with the reader connected and let it search for new driver.

I am running win XP.

The reader has no brand name.

The driver is ok.

I am being asked to manualy configure the memory range in the resource tab.

That is the problem, what memory range do I select, there are a lot of possible choices, far too many to check each one.

In fact I did check each one of the available memory ranges in the resource tab, none of them work.

I looked around on the net for a solution to this problem, a lot of people are asking the same question, but nobody has an answer.

Anyone able to help me with this please?

I've not had the problem of a card reader asking for a memory range. Perhaps the problem is that the readers is unbranded and defective.

I agree with Woolwell's comments - try a brand name reader.

Hmmm, defective card reader.

Can anyone suggest a popular brand please?
