Problems with USB port?

Question

I have Compact Flash Card Reader/Writer made by Soyo. [http://www.soyousa.com/products/proddesc.php?id=120] I use it to tranfer digital pictures from a digital camera. I have a 64mb flash card in my camera, and I have never had a problem. But I had some major problems when I tried to use 128mb flash card. When I put the 128mb flash card into the reader the computer just locked up. I re-booted but couldn't even use my 64mb flash card. So I plugged the Compact Flash Card Reader into the other USB port on my computer and the 64mb flash card worked great. So I tried the 128mb flash card and the same thing happened... locked up the whole computer... and now neither of the USB ports work. I reinstalled the software for the Card Reader but that didn't help. I added the USB card through Windows98... no luck. Is it possible that the 128mb flash card just blew out my USB ports and I need replace that USB card?
