How to check a listed smartcard reader to be online

I'm wondering if there is a SCard API solution to check the list of resource
manager reader entries to be active or not. I develop an external dll plugin
which needs to find out which of the listed readers I get from calling
SCardListReaders is really connected. After calling SCardGetStatusChange I
get a SCARD_READERSTATE telling me that there is no card in the reader - even
the read isn't connected at all! The same result if I call SCardConnect! I
suspected to get something like SCARD_E_UNKNOWN_READER when I call
SCardConnect. Why not? Do I have to cope with plug&play? Is it possible to
register for any smartcard related events?
Thanx for any help!
