PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: windows xp home edition
Problem Application Name & Version:default drivers
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:


When I used to plug my card reader into USB port, pc would recognise and bring up a box asking what I wanted to do, this included an option of save photos to file. In the bottom left hand corner of this option box was a check box to say do not ask me this again. I checked it because I thought the fuji software I installed would work direct with the camera. It doesn't, but now when I plug my card reader in I can't get this option box to come up. I went back to a safe point before I did this and it worked, but now I can't go back that far, it seems whenever I do a restore and then undo it the amount I can go back gets less and less. Can anyone please help me. all I want to do is plug in my card reader and get xp to recognise it and download the pictures

Un-install the Card Reader from Device Manager...reboot your PC and let WinXP detect the reader again.It will re-install all the drivers and set everything back to Default settings.
Let us know if it worked.

sorted,
thank you very much. I actually ended up by fixing it without realising !!
I went into MSConfig to remove some programs from my start up and removed scan manager, this had the same effect.
For future reference though can you tell me where I can find device manager, I couldn't find it, but know it is there because I have used it before, but when I did a search for it. it didn't come up
Thanks again
Tim.
