I'm having troubles with the combined SD/mini/MMC/RS/Plus/Mobile card slot reading my SD card. It will recognize the card the first time I insert it after turning on the computer, but after doing the safe removal and taking out the card, it won't recognize the card again unless I restart the computer. When I put the SD card in the slot without restarting, nothing at all happens except that the green LED by the slot comes on. In addition, if I restart the computer so that the card actually reads, when I do the "safely remove," the message that pops up saying that I can safely remove it calls it a USB device instead of an SD card. None of the other computers or devices I use have either of these problems. Anyway, I would at least like to get it so that I can use the card more than once without restarting.
