    Is your computer Win 98SE or the older Win98 ? USB only works properly in Win98SE. Even then it doesnt autodetect some devices like thumb drives. You need to install the drivers for them before they get detected.

    I think its time for you to use WinXP

    You would need to install the drivers that came with your card-reader on your computer in order to get the card-reader to work.

    Also, as mentioned, the operating system should be at least Windows 98 Second Edition.

    Things to check:

    1) Is the cable plugged in firmly/correctly.

    2) Is the card-reader backward compatible? Is it able to hook up to a USB1.1 connection?

    If still got problems, PM me.
