It could be, I ask this question twice. Dunno where my previous question disappeared. So I type it again. By he way, the new site design is really confusing and just ....gay.
Well, to the problem:
I have an internal card reader with USB-Port. It is possible to plug it in when windows is already running and then I get 4 drive letters (for the different slots CF,mspro,etc). Well , thats ok. But since it is an internal device, I don't want to open the pc-case everytime I want to use the card reader.
The trouble is, if I start up the computer with plugged in card reader, Windows will only recognize an "USB-Device". No drives etc. Well something is missing during booting....the question for you what?
I tried it with ACPI and CPI interrupt mode. Also, there are no interrupt conflicts. I did a clean Install W2K SP4 slipstreamed.
Oh, it is a USB 2.0 device. My motherboard ASUS P4B533-E has 6 USB-Ports in 3 groups à 2 Ports. Every group has its own (!) IRQ and also 500mA current available. There are no other USB-Components connected to the computer. The card reader is connected to the ports 5/6 which is an internal connector.
Any tips are welcome
