Here it is, simple steps, 3 in total, less than 5 minutes to fix!
1. Download this file which is the hotfix from Microsoft and which you MUST install: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923293
Do not reboot the computer at this time. You have two more steps.
2. Download this file which is the latest driver of WinXP/Vista:
http://tinyurl.com/2ucfxe - (version 188.8.131.52 for ALL vendors, not just HP). Install it and complete the remaining step before rebooting.
3. FINAL AND MOST IMPORTANT STEP! You simply need to edit the registry in order to have Windows properly recognize the card reader:
~ Run regedit.
~ Key you want to edit is located in:
~ Original Key Value: SDParam = 16 (Decimal)
~ New Key Value: SDParam = 1
~ Reboot for new setting to take effect.
That's it and you're done. When you restart the computer and put your multimedia card in, you will see something you've never seen before... the little light on the side of your computer reading the card you've inserted!

If you have SP3 it will not work. That download is installed when you install SP3. My suggestion would be to buy a new usb card reader that will accept media larger than 1GIG.
Have you chatted with HP about this issue?
