You have several readers installed.  By default gpg uses the first one.
Put this line into ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf :

  reader-port "SCM Microsystems Inc. SCR3340 ExpressCard Reader 0"

I have not seen any reports about thsi reader; thus please report the outcome.

You will have different problem ;-).  gpg 1.4.9 does not yet support
these cards.  The forthcoming 1.4.10 will have at least limited support.

In general I suggest to use GnuPG 2.0.12 plus the patches I recently
posted (or under Windows gpg4win-2.0.0rc1 which already includes these
patches).  GnuPG 2.0.13 is also close to a release.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Auschnahme regelt ein Bundeschgesetz.
