Latest tech support updates for USB Media Readers with ASUS P8P67 Deluxe Motherboards:
1. The card reader shows up in Device Manager as working properly.
2. The various drives show up in Disk Management, and detects when a card is inserted, but it reads 0 bytes.
3. When a card is inserted, “Computer” detects that a card has been inserted by highlighting the drive, but when I click on the drive to read the card, it gives me a “Please insert a card into Removable Disk X” popup.
4. I can get the reader to work if I insert the card, then disconnect and reconnect the reader cables, or by restarting the computer with the card in the reader, but once I remove the card and reinsert, I get the popup again.

Current utility Marvell Storage Utility V4 (v184.108.40.2069), which is a current download for the P8P67 Deluxe motherboard on Asus’ web site and was released last December of 2010.
