SD card (not SDHC) at 4GB=ONE gig?

SD card. The proper clean-up is to clean FORMAT the
SD 4GB drive,
Surprize= it returned = ONE gig only. (residual size "saved")
4 GB into ONE gig : is the problem
SDHC is not reliable and is not compatible with many systems.
I use only SD=only cards, very reliable, fully interchangeable.
I ASK YOU TO LOCATE FOR ME, EXACTLY where from I can
download a FORMAT (factory) software to "re-activate"
this 4GB drive back to its original 4GB.
and, or, whatever this software will DO, to make it so.
Tell me or give me the software, where is the download, exactly.
No arguments, no discussions, opinions or detours, Exactly where, or provided, if you can, by you, the experts in the field.

Computer Cannot read my SD Card


STOP SD MEMORY CARDS ARE NOT ALL THE SAME !This is a very common issue as of late because of the fairly recent addition to the market place with the "HC" and "XD" Cards. I have found most computer older than 2008 wont read HC and XD cards however I'm sure there are USB card readers that can fill this gap available at your local pc shop. Please look Carefully at these different formats Standard SD: 1 MB to 4 GB readable by almost all computers most often up to 2GB rarely up to 4GB 6468175.jpg

SDHC: 4 GB to 32 GB Most older Computers Cannot read the the HC format, good however for NEWER devices such as camera's, video cameras and recent phones (my cannon powershot S80 will NOT read HC format, nor will my 2007 laptop.)

SDXC: 32 GB to 2 TiB same limitations as above, Great cards for Digital Video Camera though!

here is a wikipedia note "Changes to the interface of the established format have made some older devices designed for standard SD cards (≤4 GB) unable to handle newer formats such as SDHC (≥4 GB). All SD cards have the same physical shape, which causes confusion for many consumers"
So.. in closing MAKE SURE your device supports HC and or XC before your purchase one! Also be aware that most of these cards have a lock switch on them to write protect the data, located on the side of the card. It MUST be in the Unlocked position to operate normally. Hope this helps someone out there. please use the thumbs up if it clears up anything for you! Gurvy

My Acer 3692WLMi does not read my Fuji 8 gig SDHC card but it will read my Panasonic 2 gig SD card. Can someone give me an answer/solution. Thanks C


While I'm not directly familiar with this Acer model, it looks to be an older laptop. It's almost certain that it was built prior to the SDHC cards being created - a lot of older memory card readers are not able to read the High Capacity (HC) flash cards. I actually own a couple of devices that also would not read the 8GB card.

To test, I would recommend finding a newer USB SD card reader that you could either borrow or purchase (they're usually not too expensive) to see if that reader could get the information from the SDHC card.

If that works, the problem would be that your flash card reader does not support the higher volume cards. This is the most likely possibility.

If it doesn't work, there may be an actual problem with the SDHC card itself.

Hope this is helpful!

I have added a 4gb sandisk mini sd card but when trying to download more apps I get a message that the card is not detected. how do I fix this? Thid is for the 7 in wireless mini tablet


Hello, if it's 4gb it won't be SD...it'll be SDHC. It's possible your Sylvania doesn't support the SDHC.
Biggest size SD is 2GB.
Do you have any smaller cards you can use?
Let me know how it goes!

It doesn't read 8gb sd cards on internal sd drive


There are two types of SD cards. The first, standard type, had a capacity limit of 4GB. But quite soon the technology advanced and higher capacity Flash memory has been developed, so the standard had to be revised - and SDHC was born (HC stands for High Capacity), which includes cards having 4GB and above.
There is an overlap, as you can see, because there are 4GB CD cards, and 4GB SDHC cards on the market.

Now your DELL is an older machine, and it's card reader is not compatible with the new SDHC standard. And it will not be, even with a BIOS update.

You have two options: find a 4GB SD card (they are hard to find, majority will be SDHC) and stick with this capacity, or purchase an USB SD/SDHC card reader, which is cheap, and use it to transfer files to/from your 8GB card.

My acer can read an sd card,How can I get it to


While the spec sheet does not say SDHC specifically I am surprised it does not read and write it since it is an up to date unit but if it wont you can get an inexpensive USB 2.0 reader and it will work. I would check and make sure that the SDHC card is formatted properly if it is go with the adaptor. Good Luck

Kingston 4gb sd card won't read


I had a problem with lenovo's reader like this, because i put in the nokia 6600 card, correct format and all, but apparently too old and not yet ment to be read by a computer ...

sd could still be hc ... the system of names is still not set up right. if you got a small black attachment for the card that makes it longer, put it on and try inserting the card again.

check if all the drivers are like they should be.

if you've got a friend with a card reader, make sure the card is ok. and if you've got a friend with a card, make sure the reader is like it's supposed to be

post a feedback, ok

Card reader


Because your reader doesn't support SDHC (4Gb or more)

If you buy a USB SDHC compatible reader, it will be fine.
