I have a new Gateway DX4200-UB001A desktop with a 15 in 1 card reader. Today I plugged in a known good CF card and a known good SD card into their respective slots and got no response.

Is there something I have to do to activate the card reader?

Thx.

You may need to check that the card reader is actually physically connected to the motherboard - they typically use a USB connection. They should appear as drives in Windows Explorer.

It is connected to the motherboard at a connector labeled USB.
They do not show up in Windows Explorer.

The connector must not have been making good contact.
It's working now. Thanks.
