  1. The case for my new computer has a built in cardreader. the light on the card reader says that it is on.( get a yellow light) the usb ports on it work along with the mic/headphone jack on it. But any card like MS or SM card i put on it i cont see it on the screen. and i cant acsess it. I cant figure out why. I really am comfused since everything but the actual card reader in it works (it has front usb, firewire,headphone and speakerjacks) those WORK, but the stupid card reader in it DOESNT!!! :hotbounce can you help me? please. thank you

    Are you sure it is a real cardreader and not just a slot you can install one behind?

    Did you connect the cardreader to its header on the motherboard?

    Yes it is a real card reader.
    I am pretty sure I did, I will double check though. I guess I ruled that one out becuase outher functions on the card reader work, but will double chek just to make sure.

    Well, last night the power went out. The card was in the reader. Upon restart i noticed it worked and I could veiw the pictures on the card! Then I put in another MemoryStick and nothing! This confuses me even more! Any suggestions as to why this happend?
    Thanks, Dan
