Not fully compatable with Windows XP,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: OLYMPUS MAUSB-10 xD-Picture / SmartMedia USB Card Reader / Writer (Retail Package) (Personal Computers)
I was unable to get this reader to work at all with my Windows XP system. Both the drivers on the disc and the "latest" drivers on the Olympus site are outdated and not signed by Microsoft.
I tried using the device with both USB 1 and USB 2 ports with the same results. After a bit of a fight, the drivers do seem to install and you get a drive icon for each memory slot, but it doesn't recognize any media inserted, (you don't even get a flicker of the drive access light).
In reading the other reviews it seems that some people are able to get it to work on XP, but it's a crap shoot.
Without updated, signed drivers, I can't recommend this device.
