Default Computer question

I was trying to get my new USB flash drive to work and now my card reader wont even show up. If I insert my SD memory card it wont show up the light wont even come on at the tower

If I insert the USB drive it wont even show up that it's connected

Question: What were you doing to try and get your USB drive to work?

I would backtrack, start undoing whatever you changed.

Hrmm... so the USB drive never worked? Was your SD slot assigned a drive letter, like how your CD is drive "E" ?

I'm wondering if the USB slot tried to take the SD slot, and thus this conflict is created.
