Either their is a file that is not showing up on it or some of the flash chips in the card do not work. Basicly, the card may be junk. Sorry.

    Some brands of cards do not work in some readers. For example, I know someone who has a card that they can not use at a local machine for instant print of pictures. What is the brand of card and what reader are you using. There aren't any settings to change. If it doesn't work, you may need to get a different brand of a card.

Computer reads sd card as right protected when unlocked


Check that the little tab on the card is all the way forward, toward the contacts or removed completely.
Try another card to see if you get the same condition.

I got an Aluratek air ebook reader,I have a bunch of 4 & 8gb SDHC cards,does not recognize any of them,the only card reads is a 2gb SD, though claims it can take up to 32 gb SD cards,I checked with a...


Checked on there web site says they can handle 32 GB cards. But you said something interesting you said you have SDHC cards, which are NOT the same as hd cards. So while a device may take one cared they will not take another card.

Not sure what the difference is but different they are. Try a larger SD card if you can find one, probably find the SD format will work fine but SDHC not at all.

Hope this helps

Hp a720n put a sd card in and it doesnt read it or if u click my computer it doesnt show up need a driver or something to fix it where can i find it i went to hp website but could find a driver


I had the same problem. Turns out that the SD Card reader will only recognize cards with a capacity of 2GB or less. It won't read my 4GB or 16GB cards, but will read my 2GB and 8MB(!) cards.

I cant seem to access MY SD Memory Card from my New Camera through the SD Card slot on the Front panel of My Aspire M1201 - The Green LED is on but no pop up and i cant find the correct the section to...


Newer cameras may have SDHC cards - these have a high capacity. Older computers can't read the newer SDHC cards - they can only read the old SD Cards. The SD card and SDHC cards look exactly the same. The SDHC card will probably say "SDHC" on it somewhere. Fortunately you can buy a USB SDHC card reader for a computer for around £2 on amazon. I would buy one of those. You could search the internet for "usb sdhc card reader".

Cant format my micro sd memory card


if you are talking about the kind used into mobile phones...its easy ...just put it into the adapter that transform it into a normal size SD card ..and place it into the card reader from any computer and format by right click on it into my computer ....and choose format FAT stile ...this will erase all you have saved into it ...
if you are talking about a normal size SD card ...see that they have a locking mechanism on the side ...and if that is on locked mode ...this might cause the impossibility of changing any data on it ...even formatting ....

I have a 4gb sandisk micro sdhc with adapter and the computer freezes when i have it in the sd drive.I have a hp pavilion a1 a1203w. Is there anything i can do?? Please Help


I had a similar problem not long ago. The SD and SDHC standards are different. SD only goes up to 2GB, and SDHC (high capacity) goes higher than 2GB. THe problem is that SD card readers aren't capable of reading SDHC cards, even though the card will physically fit into the card reader slot. When you insert an SDHC card into an SD card reader, the reader attempts to read the format, and locks up the OS while trying. You'll need to get an SDHC card reader and use it separately like through a USB port or something.

8gb memory stick only able to take 2mb of data


What?  Perhaps you mean your SDHC SD memory card can only store 2GB of data because your card reader and its drivers are pre-SDHC?  Usually formatting isn't an issue.  You get a "disk full" error after 2MB, copying from some file manager?  What, really?

Every time i install my sandisk 4.0 gb sd hc into my computer it keeps telling me to install the card.


Check the specs on your computers card reader... Is it compatible with High Capacity SD cards? Anything over 2 gig is considered High Capacity. I'm quite sure you will find this to be your problem. Insert a 1 gig SD card and I'm sure it will read it fine.
