I had problems reading any SIM cards - it responded "To connect to SIM card is failed" - resolved when I found that the plastic lead in guide for the SIM had a chip out of it, so the card failed to enter the guide on one side. Twist the card as you insert the SIM to ensure that it locates in both guides. (The chip end of the SIM goes in first with the chip towards the hinge.) Plug the SIM into the reader then the reader into the USB.
Some advice for users that may be useful:
1 Wait a couple of minutes when you first plug the reader in for the device drivers to be loaded (run Device Manager to see this process in action).
2 Modern phones can store CONTACTS on the SD card instead of the SIM, so don't panic if the reader shows no contacts on your 3G SIM.
3 Editing is not entirely intuitive - just select an entry on the LHS then edit the boxes on the RHS of the screen.
