|It came preinstalled on my Gateway 560GE PC. Used for the digital media reader on the front of the computer - SD/MMC/SM/MS/MS-PRO, CF/MICRODRIVE Nick|
|Preinstalled with cd/dvd on any desktop pc J. Hungerford|
|I had a USB Mass Storage Device appear in Device Manager on our XP Pro eMachines computer. Seems responsible for removable disks in Device Manager. I ran the trial version of Security Task manager, and it listed these removable disks when I selected Digital Media Reader. Security Task Manager listed several errors in the Text in File section (bottom right), so I uninstalled Digital Media Reader. The removable disks are still there. Not sure I should have uninstalled Digital Media Reader. Can anyone help?|
|Seems likely that it is a legitimate file for the e-machine card reader. TecBrat|
|It says it's a Multimedia Card Reader by Alcor Micro, Corp. I have it on my eMachines PC. Avi Green|
|Loads on start up on Gateway pc's for Digital Media Manager Cookieblz|
|It works for the card reader but like all eMachine products is buggy on some models by not enabling flash drives and making windows think a drive is not ready in the scans.|
|It is part of Digital Media Manager ports. Only after doing SP2 for windows did this error come about. See also: Link Mohel|
|Its for most standard (Non-Branded) Internal Media Card readers, regrardless of the system manufacturer. Jordan|
|It showed up in Task Manager - Recently had to do a 'non-destructive restore" on my E-machine (gateway/ amd) that WAS destructive, and left me at XP SP2. After uninstalling programs I didn't want, need or outdated, my CD/DVD drives no longer operate. That was right after I deleted Napster and ran a junkfile cleaner. MBAM didn't find malware, but Super Anti SPyware is finding familiar adware. Joanne|
