Multi-card reader issue

I have two multi-card readers. Once works like "traditional" multi-card readers, where each socket on the reader corresponds with a different drive letter; this works very nicely with USB Safely Remove 4.0B3 with respect to the "eject vs remove" issue.

I have another multi-card reader which "publishes" a single mass storage drive for ALL the different supported types. There is no opportunity/option to force this into an "eject vs remove" supported device.

Because it's probably germane, I've included the "Technical Information" data for the device:

Sys_DeviceDescription: USB Mass Storage Device

Hi millardjk,
Thank you for the information you gave us.

Yes, currently the program cannot determine card-reader if it has only one drive. In future versions we will add an option that allows you to manually setup should program treat device like a card-reader or not.
