I bought a PCMCIA reader/writer for my desktop. It is an internal reader that connects with 2 SCSI cables to an PCI controller on the mobo. http://www.amtron.com/reader/pcdtp220s.htm. Thats the product I ordered. I have a brand new PC with XP Pro SP2. The problem I am having is that the first time I used it it read the card fine and I was able to remove it safely from my PC. That was the only time I was able to use it. I have restarted, uninstalled, reinstalled, and updated drivers with no avail. This one has stumped me and I was hopeing someone would know how to solve this.

Have you tried the PCMCIA card you are putting in there on another PC/Laptop?  Does the card show up in Device Manager?

Thanks for the reply!
I tried that. When I put it in my laptop it does not show up in the Device Manager or My Computer either.

I figured it out. For posterity, you have to map the drive to get it to work. It should just work without me having to do that manually but oh well it works... puter_geek I will give you the points because you helped.
