    try blowing on the contacts of the card/ reader

    well, it could be an issue with your usb ports, the drivers or the cable

    no. I plug it directly to the usb ports. I tried using the back ports also, and it does the same thing... That's the problem with propietary connectors, the the card site has barely any info about how to buy it, let alone info for fixing it...

    The exact same thing has happened to my friend. He's given me his G6 to try out on my PC to see if its working - it is and installed perfectly and I've copied some games across and its all working 100%.
    I really have no idea how to fix his PC - but I wanted you to know that you aren't going mad this is a real fault that's happened to other people.

    My guess is that its corrupted his USB drivers somehow (because other USB memory type items are apparently acting odd as well) - but god knows how to reinstall these.

    Hang on, he already said at the top that he's tried his card in another PC and the problem still exists so this is not a usb/driver problem on the PC end. I'n be inclined to think he has a faulty cable or reader or connectors. Blow/clean all the connectors, check they seat properly, and try again.

    its like 4th thread that got fixed by cleaning/blowing the contacts.
    why dont mods sticky some essential troubleshooting for G6Lite? no one updates the old one.

    actually I unplugged the pc for a couple hours and it recognized the card. I cleaned the contact and it still didn't work... guess that needs to be written down also. [​IMG]

    Hope you get this sorted.

    Have you tried it through a USB hub to see if that helps?

    Can you explain again how you fixed it?

    Blowing it doesn't work for me. I kept plugging it in and out of the 4ports I have and it aint working. =[

    HELP. I don't wanna buy a new one. zzz

    I forgot to mention that you can clean the connectors by rubbing very lightly with a pencil eraser.
