I have a Dell all in one machine with win 10. It will not consistently recognize the drive that accepts the flash card with pix on it.
Any ideas from you knowledgeable folks?

Don't have Win10, never will, but you can find a Micro$oft win 10 user forum and that should help.

Found this site which may help Windows 10 won't detect USB 2.0 flash drives [Solved] - windows 10 - Storage

You may still be able to get rid of 10 and have 7 installed by a good PC service company.

You will need to know whether the drive is set up for usb2 or 3. Be sure the drive mounts in another machine.

If you had a win 7 machine and down-graded to 10, you may be able to uninstall 10 and revert back to 7. I think you have 30 days to do so. Not a fan of Micro$oft or 10. When you go back to 7, find and install Never10.exe to prevent the update from repeating. Even after support for 7 ends in 2020, if you run a good antivirus and Malwarebytes, you will be safe online for years after Micro$oft abandons its users once again. The upgrade is not to your benefit.

Gene, I had the same problem...turned out to be the slot (hardware) in the computer. When I insert my sd card, I have to withdraw it a little, then it works. I thought it was windows10 but it turned out to be my computer hardware. Good Luck!

Tom, thanks for the info on Never10.exe. I just used it and it's so simple. It also removes the 6GB of W10 files that uSoft put on my computer.

I've had nothing but issues with card readers . The factory SD slot seems to have no issues though

Interesting. I've been using the same Verbatim (2.0) for several years, on two different machines and it's been trouble free.
I can't imagine doing it any other way. The best part is no camera mfg's proprietary download software...and it's a Hell of a lot faster than the aforementioned camera software.

I'm pretty sure that's the same brand I threw in the garbage lol . Hate the dam things .
For some reason I had fewer issues with them when they first came out

Betcha it wasn't the card reader causing the problems.

I download straight into Picasa and let it sort out where to file the pictures.
Picasa is a filing system not a photo manipulation program although it'll do some basic stuff.
Mostly it just keeps track of where the pics are on your HD, and all the meta data associated with them.

Thanks for all your help. If I stick it in and wiggle it around, it works.
