Re: TortoiseSVN repo browser doesn't work with MS Card Reader

Thanks for your reply. It seems there there are no config options for this
and I have the latest driver. Why can't TSVN make one request and cache
results? That would seem the more robust solution as, like you say, it's
possible this is by design at the driver level.

Btw, I have tried an external card reader too...not sure if they used the
same driver but I got the same results.
