    Does the little green light by the card reader go on when you stick th
    card in? On some systems, the power to the reader is cut off if you us
    "safely remove" before you pull out the card. Safely Remove must not b
    used - use "Eject" instead. But when the power is off, it usually come
    back with a reboot

    Must I understand that one never has to use "Safely Remove" be it for an
    SD/MMC card or an USB device like a memory key or a camera cable? I've
    always used "Safely Remove" which makes the card reader slot / USB device
    disappear but all I need to do to restore that device is plugging something
    in again.

    That being said, what are the practical differences between the "Safely
    Remove" and "Eject" commands?

    Thank you in advance.

    I really don't know what the exact differences are. But "safely remove
    shuts the power off for card readers on some systems (not on all). Tha
    is why "eject" is recommended for card readers. For all other US
    devices you can use "safely remove" - as far as I know

    What size SD cards are you trying to read? If they are
    over 2GB, the reader must be able to read high density
    SDHC cards. Also, make sure the HP driver for the slot
    is enabled. It may need an update.

    Had the same thing happen to me and I sent a email to HP and the problem
    happened because the computer installed SP2 Update on my x64 SYSTEM, I
    downloaded the new update bios for my computer and everything is working
    again.

    Good point. Systems from early 2007 or older are usually unable to rea
    SDHC cards

    To clarify: this is for built-in card readers.

    Well, it really happens for external USB card readers as well, but you
    can easily restart an external reader by unplugging and replugging it.
    Actually, a built-in reader works the same way, but you have to
    partially disassemble the computer to unplug and replug it :)
