Go to your start-up programs, click on TOSHIBA, click on UTILITIES, and then SETTING FOR FLASH CARDS. You will be able to disable or enable your flash cards from there. But a word of warning- once you disable the flash cards, your keyboards Fn hotkeys wont work which is a bit of an inconvenience, at least so I found!
But an update to the problem on my computer, it has stopped doing it!
Honestly can't tell you of anything special that I have done, but for the last week or so, having disabled and then enabled the flash cards again, the 'drop-downs' have stopped.
Rather strange, but there it is.
A couple of Windows updates have come in sine then, but as they were in the main security related, I am still a little perplexed...
Did however start monitoring the performance and reliabilty of the computer at the height of the problem.
Noticed that as the reliabilty index climbed, so did the general overall stability of the computer. Could this have had a knock on effect on the inner workings of the Flash cards I wonder?
From an index figure of under 5 to it's present near all-time high of about 8.5 (out of the box it's a perfect 10), the computer seems to be back on an even keel (touch wood!)
I suggest that anyone with a similar problem make sure that any relevant Windows updates are installed, that they 'chill-out' on stressing their computers (no software installs and the like, just day to day general use for at least a while), and that they allow the system to stabilise generally.
That's all I've done, and well as I said the computer is good again.
As I originally mentioned concerning this paticular model, it somehow finds a way to get back on its feet pretty much every time.
Try all that you can as I did, but if all else fails just give it time.
You never know, sounds daft but that might be all it needs...
Hope that helps...

Hi mebren15.

If you are referring to the Driver for the Toshiba Flash Card Reader, then you may install it from the Computer manufacturer website.

The Driver for the Flash Card Reader is required in order to use it.

Once you have installed the Driver or Application, you may use the Flash Cards normally.

However, you may also provide me the Model # of the Computer, so that I can provide the Driver download link.

Hope this helps.

Please feel free to contact for further detailed information.

    Hi mebren15.

    You may disable the Toshiba Flash Cards by using the System Configuration Utility.

    I have mentioned the detailed steps to disable the Toshiba Flash Cards:

    1) Please press the "Windows+R" keys simultaneously.
    2) This should open the Run command window.
    3) In the Run command window, please type "msconfig" and press Enter.
    4) This should open the System Configuration Utility.
    5) In the System Configuration Utility, please select the "Toshiba Flash Cards" or anything which indicates "Toshiba".
    6) Once you have done this, please restart the Computer for the settings to take effect.
    7) By doing this, you will disable the Toshiba Flash Cards Application from starting automatically.

    Please follow the above steps to disable the Toshiba Flash Card Utility.

    Hope this helps.

    Please feel free to contact for further assistance.

Invest in a USB card reader to read the CF card from your camera (around $15). Your camera was made before picture transfer protocol (PTP) was develeoped, which is what allows the camera and scanner wizard to work. With the card reader, you put your card into it, and your computer 'sees' the card reader as another drive on the computer, like a flash drive.

I can't unistall Media Now CD & DVD Burning Suite

some programs require the disc to uninstall, if the little programs are attached to other programs you will not be able to uninstall them
you can go to start/my computer/go to the program, click on the file icon, that will give you a split screen, you can then look at each detail to see if the little programs are attached to another program

Toshiba flash cards not working ??

It means what it says. There have been mentioned problems of this. You can disable the flash cards (>Start Menu-->All >Programs-->Toshiba-->Utilities-->Settings for >Flash Cards-->Disable Flash Cards) but you then apparently lose the function keys (therefor cannot change the brightness.) First off though you should perhaps state the model of your laptop. If it is the Toshiba A10/700 then I believe there is a Value Added Pack for download on the Toshiba's Canadian website - but has problems. I have also heard of programs causing such problems, such as Photoshop CS2. Is this message appearing after hibernate? If so what programs do you leave running?

You seemed to have uninstalled your video card driver software. You will need to reinstall it, perhaps you can download it from the internet or find the installation cd. Do you know which model of video card you had? There is nothing wrong with your monitor. ZT3000 Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
