Try this site for card reader drivers.

All I can suggest is you try different ones from the driver download section in the hope you find a driver for your card reader.

Your other option, of course, is to connect your device (I assume it's a digital camera?) to your computer with its USB cable and transfer the data that way.

Obviously the card is incompatible with Windows 7.

You can either connect your camera to your computer to transfer the images or use XP Mode
under a virtual PC.

It sounds like you didn't load the chipset and/or USB drivers for your motherboard.

USB Flash drive format?
Hi I have an 8 GB flash drive that is formatted as FAT32. Will I mess it up if I use W 7 to reformat it as NFTS? The reason is because TrueCrypt can install larger containers in NFTS. Thanks.
