I would be most grateful for your help

I have a PC running XP with SP2. I have a USB2 all in one card reader. Recently I (foolishly) removed the multiple drive letters of the card reader and reasigned my back -up hard drive to tidy things up. Now when I plug the card reader in I get the usual USB connection noise but the reader does not show up in Windows Explorer. I have been into the device manager and the card reader is there with 4 listsing - one for each slot. I tried to uninstall it in the hope that it would re-install and sort itself out. No luck. The card reader is working when I plug it into my laptop

I have downloaded Drive Manager and the card readers' drives are not listed.

Have you any suggestions?

Many thanks


PS NOw cured the probelm. Went to Disk Management and manually assigned drive letters
