To clarify: is this when you plug the card into the reader? Or when you
plug the reader into the USB port?
I have very simple SanDisk card reader which reads only SD cards (not memory
sticks or CF or such). I leave it plugged in all the time and have used
Disk Management to set it to always be Drive S:. When I insert the card
into the reader, nothing happens because I've turned off AutoPlay for it.
But I can read the card's contents with Windows Explorer and do all the
usual things with those files. Mostly the cards are from my digital camera
and I just start Photoshop Elements and read the new photos from the card.
In Disk Management, I've right-clicked on the drive, then on Properties |
Policies and set it to Optimize for quick removal, so that I never have to
wait for the "safe to remove" message.
I do unplug the reader now and then. When I plug it into USB again - even
to a different USB port - it is seen as Drive S: again and things continue
It might help us understand the problem if you tell us more about your
