    I recently bought a USB sd card reader so that I could copy photos off 2 different SD cards onto the tablet when traveling.
    Initially it was working fine.

    Now however, the tablet won't detect the USB device at all.
    Nothing listed in Disk Manager after I plug in the USB card reader.
    Same thing when I have the Tablet connected to power.

    I can plug in a USB thumb drive/removable storage device just fine.
    Tablet detects it no problem.
    So that proves the USB port is working.

    So i tried the USB card reader on my desktop pc and it worked fine.
    Which proves the problem is not the reader, but the Tablet.

    what can I do?
    This very USB device was working fine when i first tried it.
