Default trouble on my card reader

Dear experts
i bought a eagle tec card reader.
this reader works fine on my 8mb sm card,
however, if i want to use my 64MB sm card, i have to plug the reader to my pc/usb port after inserting my SM card,
do u think it will hurt my SM card, the card is more expensive then the reader!!

Could it be the 8mb is the default while with a 64Mb the driver in the PC need to reloaded again, since the controller portion of SM flash are embedded in the software? The USB interface just provides the power and the serial communication portion...
