Micro SD USB 2.0 problem

By latino_trancer ·
I'm fairly limited to computer terminology and I'm having issues with my new Micro SD USB 2.0. I recently purchased an R4 for my Nintendo DS and with it came a Micro SD USB 2.0 stick to place my Kingston 1GB Micro SD in. When I insert the Micro SD USB into my USB ports (I tried all of them) a balloon pops up and says "USB Reader". After that the "Found New Hardware Wizard" prompts me and says that it needs to be installed. I tried going along with it (looks through Windows updates) but finds nothing and then a new balloon pops up saying Hardware installation error. My question is, how can I get it so that my computer can read my Micro SD USB 2.0 and do I need to download anything to get it to work? (No installation CD came with it so I figured it was not required to function) My OS is Windows XP.

Just tried them all with similar results, and it doesnt show up in Disk Management either. Any ideas anyone?

I had a problem where my MicroSD USB 2.0 would format itself every time I unplugged it, I suggest you buy the SanDisk MicroSD Combo pack for 20 dollars. It comes with an SD adapter so you can use that. That fixed my problem.
