Windows XP: plug/unplug 3 times, then works fine – 58-in-1 USB 2.0 Card Reader Reviews

Pros:
This card reader was tricky, but i'm really satisfied with it. It works well under Windows XP when you follow this sequence: Insert, Wait for Windows XP to install stuff. Remove. Insert (2), Wait for Windows XP to install stuff. Remove. Insert(3) - now your card reader is good to go.
Cons:
Did not look like it worked at first, but eventually it did work ! (see above) A little bit harder to insert the plastic connector in a USB port, but works well anyways. Does not support CompactFlash - it does not claim to support it either.
Other:
The connector is plastic. This is not a problem per say, but it's harder to push in. It won't work on the first insert. Insert it, wait, remove, 3 times under Windows XP
Bottomline:
Good size multi-card reader. Good buy.
