    USB card reader not working

    I got a card reader from a shop the other day. I needed something to read my CF card at that time.

    Incidently it didn't work but I connected straight to the camera. I took it back and he plugged it into his laptop and it worked instantly....

    I tried it on a desktop and my laptop and it didn't work.

    Running XP SP3 and not had this problem with anything else.

    Suggestions?

    oh yeh went into device manager and everything seems to be kosher. The light on the card reader also lights up when I plug it in

    What do you mean by that? Do you mean that it doesn't show in My Computer?

    If there is no letter assigned, it won't show up in My Computer. You have to assign a letter in Disk Management after installing a card in the reader.
