It might be a hardware problem,just don't try to push your card too hard into the reader, just slightly place it in reader.
Or it might be your Card is Currupt.Have you tried to insert any other card ?

SOURCE: SD CARD READER. 5 IN 1

your SD card will only fit into of of the slots on your card reader.
look at the card reader and look at your card. There should be a **** that is on the card reader almost the same size as your card. Insert it into the slot.

I have a PNY usb 2.0 combo. The usb ports work fine and read external drives etc. The SD readers quit working. The SD cards read fine on the internal mounted reader. My PC recognizes the drives, and t


I bought a deer cam (trail camera) at Walmart and a PNY card with PNY Multi-Slot USB & Flash Card Reader P-UBSDRDR21K-RF. I can't make them all work for me. PNY card reader has no instructions on the package neither on their website and their support is a joke. When I plug in this multi-slot card reader into my PC (I tried two different PCs) something isn't right. I get no results, just empty folders. The card is new and has data on it. Both products come from PNY, both were purchased at Walmart and both are going back to Walmart for a full refund and I will never buy a PNY product ever again.

Built-in memory card reader doesn't work


It's a common problem in a OS upgrade. Is your OS 32 or 64bit? Is that the only thing that out of service? In Device Manager do you show ANY Unknown Devices? Is the Card Reader Listed? post results.

SD CARD reader error: Insert removable disk into drive F:/


One of two I was say is the issue.
  • When you improperly ejected the card you messed up the MFT (master file table) on the card. You will want to format the card.
  • You could have hosed the drivers. In Device manager look under the driver details there should be some files listed. You will probably need to delete these and replace them. Since they may be system files you would need to replace them in a live boot environment such as a linux live boot cd (ubuntu.com) would be the easiest. Get the drivers it has listed copy them to a thumb drive. Boot the computer to the live CD, delete the driver files and replace with the new ones.

Can I import camera pics to a Dobly Home Theater laptop, by Acer?


First a nitpick: your memory card is Memory Stick Pro Duo, it's not an SD card. Secure Digital is one specific type of memory card, distinct from xD, CF, Memory Sticks, and other memory card types.

Okay, not that I've got that off my chest, yes you can import pics to your laptop. Just connect a card reader to the USB port and then put your Memory Stick into the reader. Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files.

Card readers should be available at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store. One important point to remember is to make sure you get a card reader that can read Memory Stick Pro Duos. If you get, for example, an SD card reader, it won't do you any good.

Sigma 4in1 card reader not working


Try a different / all other USB ports on the computer, and if possible, a different computer if no USB port on your computer works with it. If it still doesn't see the drive, the drive is probably not working. If it does see the device, but is asking for drivers, provide a disk with drivers that came with the reader - or check the Sigma web site for drivers that work with you OS (Windows, Mac, etc.), download and install / extract.

If it sees the device, but doesn't see the memory card, the reader may not recognize the newer, larger capacity memory cards. SD cards are smaller than 4GB in capacity, and SDHC cards are 4GB and larger. Make sure that if you're trying to read an SDHC card that the reader SPECIFICALLY says it works with SDHC cards. Most SD readers can NOT be upgraded with firmware to be able to read SDHC cards - a new SDHC reader is required.

Good luck!

Forget easy share, just take out the memory card (SD card) from your camera and buy a SD card reader. Put this memory card in the card reader and plug the card reader in your computer USB. It will work like a normal pen drive and you will find all your pictures inside DCIM folder of your memory card. Copy all pictures in your computer HDD to be on safe side.

Micro sd card not working


I'm having the same problem with a Transcend 4GB microSDHC card / microSD adapter. I have also found it probably has something to do with the card reader...either the card reader is an SD card reader trying to read an SDHC card OR the card reader is not able to read high-gigabyte SD cards (over 1 GB in some cases).
