Sandisk Reader/writer Ghost drive?

Archived from groups: comp.sys.ibm.pc.hardware.storage (More info?)

Please help me to solve a mystery, I will try to explain it clearly:

Whenever, I boot up my computer with 64MB Sandisk flash
card in the reader/writer, I will have an additional ghost
drive (the drive does not physically exist). I think the ghost
drive created from a partition in the 2nd hard drive. It
destroy/corrupted the 64MB Sandisk and a partition in the
2nd hard drive.

To correct the drive problems (drive mapper), I run Norton's
Win and Disk Doctor to remove the corrupt data and
finally reformat the affected partitions.

Computer Config:

1 floppy disk.
2 hard drives (IBM-40Gig; WD-120Gig - 5 partitions).
1 CDRW and
1 removable Disk (USB Sandisk reader/writer).
OS Win98SE.
Installed 2 patches
263044USA8.exe (Win98SE large drive support)
242975USA8.exe (Firewire).

I have been using this Sandisk's removable drive more than two and this problems
came up after I reformat and clean installed Win98Se a few week ago

Thank you in advance
