Try reinstalling the reader. simple steps :- click on
Look down the list and click on SYSTEM/HARDWARE/DEVICE MANAGER.
look down the list and click HUMAN INTERFACE DEVICES/USB .
At the top of the screen click on actions then uninstall. follow the
screen directions.
Put the disk that came with your reader into the cd rom and reinstall.
if you still get the same problems return the reader along with your
card and ask them to trial it on their computer.
hope this helps.
