Default HELP: Memory Card Readers in External 3.5"slot

ok, so im at a hotel internet cafe in brazil, and i notice that below the normal floppy drive (external 3.5"i assume) there is another slot, which is occupied by a memory stick reader. this reader services Memory Stick Duos, something called CF, SD cards, and something called SM, 4 cards in total, with a button on the other side of the CF one.

i plug m memory stick duo adapter in with my Memory Stick Pro Duo inside, and i cant find it on my computer. there is a light that is labeled as "Access" on the top, and it doesnt blink when i plug it in.

any idea on whats wrong, and if this could be a software fix? i could change that on this computer if needed.

also, anyone know how to change the language on a Windows XP Professional computer? its in spanish and i will operate better in english


And above all else this, to thine own self be true.

Sounds like a hardware problem to me. Make sure everything is connected okay and try a standard memory stick.

As for the language:

"Select the appropriate Menus and dialogs language from the Regional Options applet in Control Panel. The Menus and dialogs drop down list will display all the installed languages."
