I have a drive on my computer for digital camera memory cards. It reads out
as a removeable USB drive, but it only worked once when I inserted the memory
card. How do I get it to work?

Are you getting any error messages when you insert your memory card?

Plug the camera card back in, it only works when the card is inserted.

No, it doesn't do anything. It worked once, then I diconnected the device so
I could safely remove the card, and now I don't even get a green light on the
drive when I insert the card.

Have you tried the drive on another USB port or another computer? Have you
tried another card in the drive?

If it fails to work on another USB port or another computer then the drive
is possibly bad. You may want to check with the manufacture for
troubleshooting help

Try clicking on "my computer" and see if the drive shows up (with the card in
the reader). If it does click on it and see what happens.

had to restart my computer, but only one type of card works in the drive for
some reason
