I got a new laptop in August and I have not been able to get it to work with any of 5 different card readers, including a new Sandisk and a new Sony, all of which work just fine in my XP computers. The computer seems to recognize the reader in device manager, but they don't show up in the list of drives.
While I was troubleshooting, I decided to plug my few-year old Wolverine photo viewer into a USB port and the Vista equipped laptop recognized it immediately. Since then, I've been using it to transfer photos from my cards.
I found three related threads, but none really offered any information that helped me. Anyone have ideas/recommendations?
