    I was given an eMachine TS3998 with built in camera card reader.
    Computers ain't my generation but I reinstalled Win XP from the partition.
    EVERYTHING WORKS.

    I put in my Smart Media camera card and it says = MEDIA IS NOT FORMATTED - WANT TO FORMAT NOW
    I put in my HCSD camera card and it says = CAN'T PERFORM OPERATION DUE TO I/O DEVICE ERROR

    BOTH cards have pix on them and work in the respective cameras.
    There is no shmutz or garbage INSIDE the respective card slots.

    I thought it would be a great thing to have the reader built into the puter.
    I have no problem with using the camera cards with an EXTERNAL reader, but I'd like to avoid that if I can.

    Any suggestions ??

    Thanks in advance.

    Arthur,

    If you re-installed Windows you may also need to reinstall the device driver for the card reader. Most manufactures include a CD labeled something like "Device Drivers". If you don't have this CD you may need to go the the eMachines website and search for it there.

    Good Luck.
