Re: X 5470 Memory Card not being recognized by my...
First restart your computer. Double check if your memory card is locked, this is the little switch thingy on the side of it, it should say lock somewhere near it, slide it to the part not marked lock. If this doesn't help go to your start bar, click control panel, go to printers and other hardware, click on the memory card you are trying to recognize. Then it should give you some options on what to do with it and one should be load to your standard Lexmark Imaging Studio. I hope this helps!

Try reading the card with another device such as a computer card reader, also make sure there isn't some sort of lock switch on the card. If the card will not read in another device it is probably faulty and needs to be replaced.
Transferring images from a Memory Card to a Windows Computer
Follow the steps below to transfer images from a memory card to a computer running Windows.
Step one: Insert the memory card
Follow the steps below to insert the memory card into the HP All-in-One.
Turn the memory card so that the label faces left, and the contacts are facing
your HP All-in-One.
Insert the memory card into the appropriate slot on the HP All-in-One.
Some portable USB flash
drives with a read-only partition, such as U3 smart drives, might be
incompatible with the front mass-storage port on your HP All-in-One.
These read-only partitions are added by the drive manufacturer and may
include utilities and other software. Refer to the manufacturer for
additional details about your drive.
When the memory card is inserted correctly, the Photo light next to the memory card slots begins to blink. The message Reading...
appears on the color graphics display. The status light next to the
memory card slots blinks green when the card is being accessed.
If a memory card is inserted incorrectly,
the status light next to the memory card slots blinks amber and the
color graphics display shows an error message such as Card is in backwards
or Card is not fully inserted.
Never attempt to remove a memory card while it is being
accessed. Doing so can damage files on the card. Safely remove a card
only when the status light next to the slots is not blinking.
Step two: Transfer images without using the HP Photosmart software
After inserting the memory card into the
HP All-in-One, the memory card appears as a drive on the computer.
Follow the steps below to transfer the images on the memory card to the
Press the Photo
button to display the Photo menu.
Press the down arrow button (
) to select Transfer to computer
Follow the prompts on the computer to complete the transfer of images.
If there are photo files
on the memory card that have never been transferred before, a dialog
box on the computer asks whether you want to save the photo files to the
computer. Click the Transfer
option and all the new photos from the memory card are saved to the
computer.By default, the image files are saved in month and year folders
depending on when the photos were taken. The folders are created under
the C:\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Pictures folder.
Unless the SD slot is specifically designated that it can read the new SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) memory card it will not read even though it plugs intop the standard SD slot.. I checked and this printer can't read the SDHC card only the standard SD card. You can buy a SDHC USB reader on ebay for a few dollars.
To access the memory card reader without using the software provided, follow the steps below. If no card is inserted, the green light on the card reader will be on. Insert a memory card. • Insert the card with the brand name label facing up. • If there is an arrow on the card, make sure it points toward the printer. • If needed, make sure you connect the memory card to the adapter that came with it before inserting it into the slot. Wait for the light located to the right of the slots on the printer to come on. The light blinks to indicate the memory card is being read or is transmitting data. • The printer recognizes one memory card at a time. If you insert more than one memory card, a message appears on the display prompting you to remove all memory cards inserted. • If a USB flash drive is inserted together with the memory card, a message appears on the display prompting you to choose which memory device to use. When reading of images is complete, the number of photos found appears on the display. Then you can make your selection and print. these are the types of memory card supported by you printer. xD-Picture Card • Secure Digital (SD) • Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) • Mini Secure Digital (with adapter) • Micro Secure Digital (with adapter) • MultiMedia Card (MMC) • Reduced Size MultiMedia Card (with adapter) • MultiMedia Card mobile (with adapter) • Memory Stick (MS) • Memory Stick PRO • Memory Stick Duo (with adapter) or Memory Stick Duo PRO (with adapter)
From what read of the specs, the C6100 does not support SDHC cards, only SD cards. SD cards top out at 2GB; what you have is technically an SDHC (High Capacity) card, which does not work in SD devices.
