Default PC reboots when I plug in CF card reader

Hi

Encouraged by some of the comments that I read in other forums I went out today and bought a Sandisc SDDR-91CF USB 2 card reader.

When I plug it in however my XP computer reboots and then when I log in again it reboots (etc, etc, its been a long afternoon waiting!!!!)

I thought that it might have something to do with a conflict with my Canon USB cable and driver so I uninstalled the driver and unplugged the cable. This didn't change a thing as it still reboots until I unplug the CF card reader cable.

I also plugged it into notebook computer runnung MS ME and it works fine

Does anyone have any thoughts?

OK I think I know what has happened now.

I have a range of drive devices on my PC and I think the limit of drive letters is E: because the CF card reader has appeared as E: but my previous D: hard drive has disappeared.

I think this happens because I have a home network and the F: drive may be the first network drive.

Now all I need now (I think) is to find out how to make the first network drive G:.

Anyone got any other thoughts

yes, but you can set the last drive to a specific letter, so that you can only have xx amount of drives available.
