On my PC there is a card reader connected. It shows up as 4 different drives when I look at "My Computer" and elsewhere. One of the slots in the reader is for sim cards. When a sim card is inserted a Windows sound is heard and the "Installing Device Driver" window shows up but then another window stating the installation was not successful. Any further action from within windows does not solve the problem. I tried an external card reader connected via USB and the same negative results. this was tried with 3 different sim cards. Any solutions out there?
Thanks to all. 1st yes it's a sim card which comes from inside a cell phone. As to trying the manufacturer. There is no way of me telling who the manufacturer of the card could be. I assume you mean the phone company who provided the sim card then? (which places me in trouble, if so, cause the provider is from my old phone used overseas and the site is in Chinese.)
This probably won't help any of you, but I bought a Kodak card reader which included a slot for reading a mobile SIM card. All the memory card slots worked simply by plugging the card reader in, but the SIM card slot would not work until I installed the Kodak driver supplied with the reader.
