When I first plugged my new USB multi card reader, windows failed to properly install the driver. The device was seen by the system but the driver could not be loaded.
I hoped NUSB would do the job as it did usualy so well but this time it didn't.
So I looked for something else and I found this.
USB all-in-1 card reader, Direct download:
driver.zip (7.5 Mb)
Driver page index/website:
You will find there other versions available -mostly w98 compatible- as well as other drivers.
(IMO this site may be interresting.)
Here is how to proceed:
1/ If you have tried to install a driver for it unsuccessfuly, connect the card reader, wait a few seconds. Then go to "Control Panel" --> "System" --> "Device Manager". Remove the item listed as your card reader (possibly flagged with an exclamation mark).
If you don't find it, go to "Control Panel" --> "Add/Remove Software" and remove what you have installed for this device if any. If you don't find anything there go to step 2.
2/ Unplug the card reader.
3/ Read the instructions in "Manual_for_English.exe" found in the zip package. Take note on a sheet of paper of when you will have to plug or unplug the card reader because this is very important.
Failure to plug or unplug the device at the appropriate time will cause the installation to fail.
4/ Launch "setup.exe" and continue according to the instructions you have read in "Manual_for_English.exe".
5/ When it asks you to plug the card reader and wait for the driver to be installed, do it.
If nothing happens after a few seconds, press "OK".
6/ After you pressed "OK", unplug the card reader.
You must unplug the card reader before you click "Next" and before the computer restarts.
7/ Click "Next" and let the computer restart completely.
8/ When the computer has restarted completely (after the hourglass and everything), plug the card reader in and wait for the drivers to be installed. An installation progress bar should start automaticaly.
9/ If the installation is successful, you will see one new drive for each slot in the card reader. Albeit only the slot with a card in it will be accessible.
At this time you can drag and drop contents with Explorer.
Attention: This was tested only on my computer (as far as we are concerned) and there is no garantee whatsoever of usability on other machines.
Always back up your system first. Proceed carefuly. Use at your own risk!
