I use a Viking Intelliflash USB 6-in-1 Memory Reader for reading camera cards and writing to cards used to transfer files to my laptop with no trouble at all. The interesting thing is that when I right-click on one of the Reader drives in My Computer, I can click "eject" and remove the card after the LED next to the card slot goes out.
I have a Dazzle 8-in-1 card reader/writer. When my OS was Win 98SE, I installed the software and was able to use the "writer" function of this item. Now I'm using WinXP SP2 which does NOT require the driver installation to READ cards, however I cannot use the "writer" function (presumably because the software is NOT installed). I really need to use the "writer" function but I wonder if installing the software will cause trouble with my WinXP SP2 system.
Has anyone running Win XP SP2 installed software for a card reader/writer with no problems from your XP SP2 system?
