If your computer is an older one, it may not have powered USB ports. (This was very common on laptops). Also, it may just be an autoplay problem. See if it is showing up in My Computer, if not, see if you can borrow a powered USB hub from a friend.

Try running Windows update and choose custom and then install any optional software\hardware updates.

All USB ports have always had power. No USB device would function without it.

Maxine, what happens when you plug in the card reader? Do you see the card reader show up as a drive letter but no pictures or does the card reader not even show up. Try it on another computer and see if it works.
