    Hello All,
    I'm a new user here and I would appreciate your help. I recently purchased a new 6-in-1 memory card reader. This is the kind that fits in a 3.5 bay and plugs into an empty USB header on the motherboard. This accepts memory stick, SD Card, Complact Flash, etc. Well, since I installed this, my computer boots extremely slowly. Usually taking around 5-10 minutes to boot up. Once it gets to the Windows XP logo, it's lightning fast and everything works great. It seems like it slowing down during the booting to mount the drives of the memory card reader (which creates drives E, F, G, H, I, J).

    Also Seems like I'm not the only one having this problem:

    Anyways, in case it helps, here's my setup:
    AMD64 3200 90nm
    MSI k8t neo4-f nforce4
    MSI 6600GT 128mb pci-e
    1 GB corsair pc3200 ddr400 cas 2.5
    370 enermax watt power supply
    western digital 250gb sata 8mb

    Thanks in advance!

    I solved the problem on my own. Turns out that I just needed to update the BIOS. luckily, MSI has a utility called Live Update that allows you to update the BIOS right from windows. My machine now boots straight into windows with no delay. Sweet!!
