Question about Computers & Internet
I bought an old camera online. It takes Smart Media cards, so I bought one and a reader/writer. The card is working fine in the camera, but when I plug the reader into the usb port on my pc, Windows is saying "please insert disk into drive I:". Is there something I need to do for it to read the card? I've never dealt with these card before.

I suspect that the "Portable Media Serial Number Service" local service is not running.
You can check this by opening the Control Panel<AdministrativeTools<Services. Look for the above service and make sure it is running. If not set it for "Automatic" and click the "Apply" button, then "Start" by right clicking the service and click "Properties".
Let me know if this works!

Usually the disk has a little small switch, move it to unprotect the disk.
If your disk does not have an little small switch or button, Use directly an utility program to delete the normal partitions and format the disk.
Thank you for using FIXYA!

I have the same card reader and the driver disc that comes with it is a Sim Card software. KWood is correct go to sakar.com under card readers if you have the same model as me it is the CR-75 it has links for the drivers, pdf of the manual and sim card software. I have not used sim cards so can not guarantee it works, but the info claims you can backup as well as edit your sim card data.

What I suspect here is that, the USB port that you are using is a USB 1.0 port, which has a lower voltage not enough to power on your Storage drive.
In this case, there are two things you can do,
1. Change the USB port you are using for the storage drive to a USB 2.0 one (Just keep Checking all the ports one by one in case you dont know which one it is).
2. If your Storage drive has external power facility, just plug it in an external power first, before connecting it to the system.
If there are no USB 2.0 Ports on your system at all,
then just go to any electronic store and tell them you want to buy a USB 2.0 Expansion card.
and if it is a laptop, A USB 2.0 PCMCIA card.
Install it on your system, and connect your external drive through it.
Hope this helps you out.
