    Okay so i get my M3 today in the post, naturaly i try to put my SD card in the reader, which i put in my usb port.
    However problem is no removable drive is appearing in my computer. So i am now curious if i have the SD card in all the way to register

    is this okay? it was the furthest i could get it without seemingly force the flupper in.
    Oh and windows could not find drivers or anythin for te usb, not off my XP or the M3 disc, is this a problem?

    Thanks all, i know this is going to be me not pressing hard enough but had to ask,

    Looks like you've got it in far enough, but it could just be a defective reader. If that's the case just go out and get a normal SD reader at an electronics store, since your microSD should have come with an adaptor.

    I went into the devicemanager to have a peekaboo and it lists the sd reader in the other stuff with no driver. It says i need to install a driver. anyone else had to do this? or know where to get it?

    could be a defective micro-SD card.

    Yes. Windows needs a suitable driver to work the card reader, without a driver it just won't fly. (just in case the previous poster scared you, don't worry your MicroSD cards are probably fine. [​IMG])

    It's strange that it can't find it, most of them seem to work with Window's built-in drivers. Try plugging it into a different USB port (if you have another one) to force Windows to look again. (or maybe try telling it to look on the CD again, if it can't find one on there automatically then see if you can identify which file it needs yourself and point it to it manually, although I doubt there's one on there). Sorry I don't actually own an M3 so I can't help much.

    Like psyfira suggested, try a different usb port on your computer. Like the usb port in the back of your computer next to the ps/2 ports, not a front usb port if your computer has front usb ports that is.

    I had a similar problem with the card reader that comes with the cyclods evolution, it would not get recognized correctly when using the front usb ports on my computer case, but work fine using the rear usb ports in the back of the computer.
