    Go to that one and right click it. Properties | Policies tab

    Delete any checked boxes there then click ok.

    That should fix the intermittent problem for ya.
    No luck, the devices are currently not being read so there is no drive letter attached to them. I did an uninstall and scan hardware and the USB MASS STORAGE DEVICE is now listed as a USB COMPOSITE DEVICE with different device IDs and drivers. USB port works everytime and the others aren't being recognized but the Device Manager is not showing a fault on the USB Composite device?????
    Give you any ideas? Thanks for your help!

    The manufacturer is Alcor but their website is in Japanese (I think, it's Oriental for sure though) and I can't make heads or tails of it. Microsoft doesn't have a driver either. You can search Google for this: VID_058F&PID_9360

    If you don't have luck finding it, put back the Linksys one and I'll probably be able to find something good for it, or make something for it if not.

    Are you running x86 or x64?

    Hi Glenn,

    It's a bit early for Win 8 drivers I know, Try to find Win 7/Vista drivers for your device (they usually work in Win8)
    If nothing's available for these two: the XP drivers are worth a shot (difficult to find: xp x64 drivers)

    If your on x64, these drivers would also have to be signed and that makes it a bit difficult in finding a good match.

    All these drivers should be manually installed through Device Manager.

    Sorry I didn't have a better suggestion by now.

    Good luck in finding the right driver.

    Gman, the best I can find for this reader is XP drivers. If I need on bad enough I could always buy a new one. But that takes some of the masochism away {:-))! Thanks for any ideas!

    Hello Hopachi,
    This driver thing is a bit complicated for me. I have found for the two Multicard readers, that they stopped updating the drivers at XP. Can these work. Should I bother? Appreciate you stopping in!

    Plug it in to other machine, there will be a pop up notification telling about slow connection, unless the USB Legacy is disabled in the BIOS setup.

    Thanks Kevin,
    To be sure I don't care that much. I can get a new better card reader for $10. Know that I think of it, it seems to act like a USB 2.0, no problems. It is now showing the remove hardware/eject on the taskbar. Will play with it some more today. Thanks Sir!
