I just bought a Verbatim 15-in-1 Universal Card Reader with a USB2.0 interface.
I plug it into my Windows XP MCE SP2, HP Pavillion PC and Windows recognizes it as a USB2.0-CRW device but it cannot find the drivers for it. I tested this reader on another XP box it was detected and installed with no problem.
Now, this HP box has a built-in multi-format USB1.0 card reader which I thought might be causing the problem, so I managed to unplug the cable that connects it to the motherboard. I then tried again, to no avail.
I do have several USB devices connected to this PC... and external HD, printer, scanner... in case this is relevant.
I am at a loss at this point and need some expert assistance. I have used this forum in the past for help to rid my PC of some malware and was VERY pleased with the help I received. I hope this experience is as successful!
