Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook
So at some point I was shtting down programs in the control panel and now my internal card reader does not read my xD memory card.
tried resetting to an earlier settings but it did not help.
No, the ricoh driver didn't fix it...

I've had the same problem, and discovered that it's the same failure as other people have reported with external USB devices. (This memory stick reader is essentially an internal USB device). The solution is to shut down the computer, and to remove AC power from the computer for 15-30 seconds (i.e. unplug it). Then reconnect power, and restart the computer. This has worked for me 3-4 times I've had this problem. I think the true problem is that there is something wrong with the USB driver, but this has worked for me every time. The key is that a reboot of the computer is not sufficient, it is important to remove power.

I had this (my card reader wasn't recognising any card) problem since long time, I tried everything available online including reinstalling card reader drivers (from dell - http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/downloads/en/downloads_splash?c=us&l=en&s=gen&~mode=popup&file=188377)
Nothing worked, Finally one day I had uninstalled an virtual image drive from my machine for some other purpose, and the Card reader started working!... Yuhoooo!
