Using QuickTime player with a multi-card reader

    Ever since I installed one of these 7-in-1 memory card readers in my
    PC, QuickTime player has gone berserk. It gives me a bunch of "drive
    not ready" error messages, which if I'm patient enough, I can hit "OK",
    "Cancel" or "continue" on all of them and eventually get to the player
    to play my stupid little MOV clip.

    I'm guessing this is due to the virtual drive letters on my card reader
    not being "ready" since there is no card inserted. But who cares, I am
    trying to play a clip from my hard drive after all.

    Any workarounds for this?

    in QT Player go File, Open Recent, Clear Menu. This may help....

    Also be sure to safely remove (stop before removing) all removable media -
    XP can get a bit confused it you just hoik it out....
