It would be helpful if you gave a little more information than:

I imagine that if perhaps you told the list a few basic details someone
might be able to help.

1. What camera model?
2. What cardreader model?
3. What cardreader USB interface? (USB 1.1 or 2.0)
4. What USB ports & type on your system? (USB 1.1 or 2.0) (manufacture)

Hello? Nobody here is a mind reader. Please don't make folks play
guessing games trying to figure out your problem. Your post is akin to
me posting and saying: I bought a CD, put it into my computer, a little
lamp lit up and nothing happened...

Not trying to insult you, but please realize that this is not Dell tech
support... a little help from your side is expected :-)
