My IOGEAR SD Card Reader/Writer is recognized on Ubuntu (by using VM ware) but when I try to connect to "Removable Devices -> Alcor Micro Flash Card Reader/Writer" , the following message appears:

The connection for the USB device "Alcor Micro Flash Card Reader/Writer" was unsuccessful.
The device is currently in use.

But I think it is not used. Should I use IOGEAR driver for this one? When I connect the card reader, Ubuntu automatically recognized the "Alcor Micro Flash Card Reader/Writer" .

How can I fix the problem?

It was resolved by switching the USB slot. If you have the other solution/answer, I appreciate it. –  Insuk Oct 18 '13 at 16:33
