Other than cleaning the contacts there is not much you can do to fix it. Unless you have the test equipment know how to use it, and know what the circuit does you are kinda outta luck.

+1. Modern highly-integrated electronics is hard to repair with proper equipment, and essentially unrepairable without that equipment. If you're EXTREMELY lucky, this is a software problem. Otherwise chuck the reader and get another one. They're cheap.

It may be a cheap piece of crap. I had a reader destroy 4 SmartMedia cards...

. Did you load a card scanning program into the reader? Do you have the proper drivers installed on your computer? Do you need software to talk to the reader?
