  1. I have a tosh portege with an inbuilt scsi sd slot, but the card cannot be read. device manager says its working normally, and loading a card gets the xp gong. then my pc freezes briefly and the sd card shows 'unreadable' under 'properties'. tried three cards, no joy. any ideas?

    Go to Start->Control Panel->System->Hardware->Device Manager
    and look for yellow or red flags that might indicate a problem with a failed component or a driver.
    If there, you should go to the Toshiba Website for that model, and download the latest driver... or to the maker of the component that is failing.
    Download the driver to a location you know, then remove or disable the existing driver. Once that is done, install the newly downloaded driver.
    Report back.
