I tried to copy pictures from my camera SD card and when I plugged it in, nothing happened. There are 5 removeable media slots that used to be listed in My Computer and none of them are there now. If I put the SD card in the slot and re-boot it will appear and work properly, but none of the others show up. They are all listed in device manager under Disk Drives, but in Storage volumes, which ever ones were not plugged in when it was booted have a yellow exclamation mark. They all say "This device cannot start. (Code 10)."

I hate to reboot every time I want to use the slots, any ideas?

When this picture was taken, the SD card was inserted and working after the most recent boot. Otherwise there would have been 5 items in the list of yellow exclamation points. It will stay that way until the next boot.

Try removing them in Device Manager and then reboot

I forgot to report that I had solved it a couple of weeks ago. I use Acronis True Image Home 2009 and the latest build is buggy. I rolled it back to build 9709 and all of my drives showed back up and work fine.
