This is the last update. I have no intentions of trying all these things that was suggested in email. This is part of the response to my request for a phone call to assist me in performing the 3 page instructions.

Maybe this is the norm, oh well,
As I suspected… 3 pages to tell you to completely uninstall your HP product and reinstall it.
They did provide you a link to download their software and drivers, they're probably newer than the ones that came with the printer (although i'm not completely sure – 2009-09-03 release date.)
You should use Revo Uninstaller to completely remove your HP Printer Software and Drivers.
When that's done:
- Click on Start – Right-Click on My computer – Click on Manage
- Click on Services and Applications on the left and Double-Click on Services on the right panel.
Look for that service: HP CUE Device Discovery Service
If it's there: Right-Click – Properties – Under Startup Type, choose Manual.( If it's not, better)
Reboot. Download their software at
and install it.
According to them, this should fix your problem.
Keep me posted!
I would like to propose the following suggestions to solve card reader detection problem
Firstly -> Disconnect Media Card Reader and reconnect it. Generally, Windows will automatically detect the hardware changes.
- Turn off Windows.
- Disconnect Media Card Reader.
- Turn on Windows.
- Connect Media Card Reader.
Then-> Disable and re-enable the USB controller.
- Click Start, and then click Run.
While you are using Windows Vista, click Start, and then use the Start Search box.
-Type devmgmt.msc, and then click OK. Device Manager opens.
-Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers.
Note： You might have to scroll down the list to find this item.
- Right-click the first USB controller under Universal Serial Bus controllers, and then click Uninstall to remove it.
-Repeat step above for each USB controller that is listed under Universal Serial Bus controllers.
-Restart the computer. After the computer starts, Windows will automatically scan for hardware changes and reinstall all the USB controllers that you uninstalled.
-Check the USB device to see whether it is working.
Finally-> install the latest Media Card Reader Files
Hope this is helpful for you.
I have replaced the card reader. However I still have the old card reader and I intend to use it with another machine.
I have included your instructions in my GCS (geek cheat sheet which has how to suggestions from here) and I will use them when I add the card reader to the other box.
