    Hp Pavilion zd8000 - similar problem - the built in digital media reader works trouble free with XD cards but fails to recognize 2G and 8G SD cards (I don't have smaller capacity SD's so I don't know if they would work). I'm convinced that it is a driver problem but don't no where to go from here. Any suggestions?

    What is the specific device that you need to disable/enable in the device manager list? I disabled/enabled the ones under PCMCIA adapters section but it did not work.

The solution is to go to your device in device manager on the driver tab simply disable then re enable the device - problem solved in seconds - no need to re install your OS system.....

This surely is a problem assosiated with your OS....sometimes when you are installing the OS, the components that are installed play a very important role..but when certain components aren't intalled properly, you face problems like these....so try re-installing the OS and your problem is definately fixed..!!

SD card slot problem


Yes, these HC cards require a different reader, than traditional SD cards. The builtin one on the laptop probably doesn't support them, since any SD card above 2gb is technically considered an HC SD card. so my advice is to go to a cheap computer parts supplier, and see if they have a reader that will work for HC SD Cards.

DAMN THE MAKERS OF FLASH MEMORY FOR BEING SO COMPLEX!!!!
