|The card reader connects to the mobo via usb, and windows recognizes the different slots as four removable disks. I placed an sd card in one of the slots (card and slot verified working previously) and nothing happened, i tried inserting it again, nothing.|
I rebooted the computer, and it froze on post, wouldn't even respond to the keyboard. I unplugged the card reader, it booted fine. After some trial and error, I've found that when the card reader is plugged in, the pc will only get past post if I insert a card. However, once in windows, no card is detected, despite any re-insertions, ejecting the drive, etc.
I've disabled/re-enabled the device, uninstalled it and re-installed it with rosewill's driver or the built-in windows driver half a dozen times in and out of safe mode, but the machine still won't boot without a card inserted, and the reader still won't recognize any cards. The reader IS working, however, as the usb port on it works flawlessly. Also, My bios reads the device as a hard disk, though it's at the bottom priority, so it's not as though it's trying to boot before my windows drive.
