I gather you're talking about an external card reader device.
I have seen the sort of behavior you're describing with these (and I've owned a few of them) on machines running pre-10 versions of Windows. This has always been with external readers that I've been using for some period of time. Given how inexpensive they are, I've always simply purchased a replacement unit and that's always been the solution to the problem. There seems to be a subset of USB devices that like to behave erratically as they age, and card readers and USB hubs fall into that grouping.

. . . the presumption of innocence, while essential in the legal realm, does not mean the elimination of common sense outside it. The willing suspension of disbelief has its limits, or should.
