Perhaps you would care to refer to a previous series of question and
answers called 'camera not recognised' before you start criticising. The
card reader is USB 2.0  All-in-1 Card Reader. The port is on my computer
and is used for all sorts of things, which work. Oh yes, I quite forgot,
I use Ubuntu 7.04.

Now you have had your little game cough up something useful.
