Gigabyte ga-x38-dq6 usb card reader malfunction

Hello,
I have installed two separate internal (wired to the USB header on MOBO) multi-card USB card readers that have malfunctioned. Both worked sporadically then quit. While I can see that the reader has power, and the USB port on it functions, the actual card readers don't. Sometimes when I plug a card into one of the explorer locks up and I have to reboot.Sometimes I'm also getting an error message on malfunctioning USB device. Currently running Windows 7 64bit. Any ideas? I'd love to have an internal card reader.
Thanks.
