Question about SanDisk 8GB microSDHC Memory Card with MobilMate Micro Media Card Reader

1 Answer

SanDisk 8GB SDHC card cannot be read by either computer or T-Mobile Dash phone.

I have the 8GB SDHC SanDisk card and the reader that comes with it, but when I plug it all in and try to open it on My Computer, it doesn't pick it up. It says "Please insert a disk into drive F:" no matter how I fit the card into the reader.

I also have the same problem with the T-Mobile Dash phone, it won't recognize it when it's inserted into the card slot on the phone.

    I have the same problem w/ my T-Mobile G1. I had a 2gb sdhc mem card that I used in my blackberry pearl before and inserted it into my G1 and it worked fine. But for some reason it won't always recognize the 8 gb sdhc card. I tried to format by directly putting the sandisk into my parents desktop and it wouldn't do anything. Couldn't even right click to get a format option.. I don't think I can, but is there a way to format the sd card while it's in my G1? You think they would put that option on the phone itself...

Solution :

Put the card in your phone, link the phone to your pc and format the card through your pc. You should see two additional drives, one for your phones memory and one for your card. I had the same problem with my phone but it is now sorted !

If the 8Gb SD card works on your HD camera, then the problem is with your built in memory card of your computer. Most of the built in memory cards of the computer only supports up to 2Gb.
You can actually isolate it by trying to test an SD card lower than 8Gb to your computer.
Solution for this is to use external USB SD reader that supports high capacity SD card (SDHC) or contact the manufacturer of your computer and ask for firmware updates for the memory card reader. Hope this is clear and would help you.

My San Disk micro SDHC Memory Cards 8GB wont format and when put in a device it heats up. What is wrong with it?

technically, some card readers dont have any regulators to minimize the voltage to read a microSD.. some direct card reader can destroy/ damage your memory card.. try to use an all-in-one card reader, or a microSD adaptor then put it in your card reader slot..

Hello, it depends how old your equipment is as SD cards and SDHC are not necessarily compatible, so if your pc and printer were designed in pre-SDHC days, then you probably wont get any success trying to reading your card.
SD cards only support 2gb max, and in order to support larger capacity for the same style card, the mapping of SDHC cards is totally different, so SD-supported equipment can't 'understand' the new mapping circuitry.
There's some interesting reading in Wikipedia which might clarify things better than my explanation.
Of course, this might not be the solution, but it's worth trying out an SD card if you have one, but I've noticed that SDHC cards are being advertised as SD cards; the only clue that they're actually SDHC is in the capacity, ie, >2gb.

When i insert my 8 GB micro SD card it says the same thing.

Your 8GB card is considered "high capacity". You will need an SDHC USB card reader to read it.

Hi Tony,

Have your My Computer window open and re-insert the card into the reader. If it doesn't show immediately, then right click and choose refresh. It should show up then.
