    I bought one of these readers (RW550) and a couple of Sony Tough G 128GB cards, and run into a snag I can't seem to resolve:

    When connecting the reader (w/o a card) to my Windows 10 computer, the reader will show up as 'USB Drive' and get mapped to a letter (D:). However, the moment I insert a CFexpress card into the reader, the reader disappears as a drive letter.
    Opening the Disk Management console and right-clicking on the partition allows me to map it to a drive letter (so I can r/w to it), but it only lasts until I eject the card. Next time I have to do this over again.

    Have anyone seen the same problem? Did you find a resolution to this?
    I've mailed Lexar tech support, but they have left for the weekend, so I won't get an answer earlier than Monday.
