First you have to know that it´s not good to re-format any kind of flash card such as pendrives, sd cards, and etc...in windows never! ntfs could destroy it, even fat32 can make it crazy...
What you must have to do is to use a HP flash drive format utility...hp flashdrive tool....
using this might recover and bring your SD card to life!
Good Luck!

Help me import from nikon cool pix s210 to Wlndows Live Photo Gallery 2011....laptop not recognizing camera


The best way to transfer pictures from a camera with an SD memory card is to do it outside the camera. If your computer does not have an SD card reader built in, you can buy an external USB card reader for $20 or less on E-bay, Amazon, etc. Remove the memory card from the camera and insert it in the card reader. Your computer will treat the card reader and SD card just like it treats an external hard drive. Either drag-n-drop or copy and paste your pictures from the SD card file to a file on your hard drive. If after you have copied and backed up your files you want to reformat your SD card, replace it in the camera and format it in the camera, not in the computer. SD cards formatted in a computer will often not work in your camera because of slight differences in the formatting.

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.

Get an USB card reader, insert the SD memory card into the USB card reader and then connect the cable from the USB card reader into the USB port on your computer. Your computer will see the card reader and SD memory as an external storage device, click on this drive and open the folders on the SD memory card to view your photos.

Camera locks up with SD card


Put the SD memory card into an USB card reader and plug the card reader into the USB port of a working computer to check if the memory card is working.
If the computer cannot detect the memory card as an external storage device and cannot open the files or folders and it cannot be formatted in FAT32 then the SD memory card is faulty and needs to be replaced..

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!

I just purchased a Nexxtech Micro SD Adapter and windows xp sp3 will not recognize it at all....nothing...nada....I assume there is a driver problem with my computer usb....I am using a Logiix lgx-79041...


Hi,
Welcome to Fixya. This is not a driver problem of usb because the Logiix is working fine. Are you using an external card reader or the built in card reader of your computer when connecting the Nexxtech adapter? Can you also provide the make and model of the computer. Please provide the information needed to be able to fix the issue.
Thanks

Dont know how to insert sd card


If you notebook does not have a built-in SD card reader, you can purchase an USB SD/memory card reader and connect it to the notebook's USB port.
When the SD card is inserted into the USB card reader the notebook will see the SD card as an external storage device. You can then copy files off this SD card to your notebook etc.

Where can I insert my mini sandisk memorycard into my toshiba laptop? I see no slots for it.


If you have no SD slot on your laptop, you will have to buy an external USB SD reader. They typically cost $5-$10, and are readily available online (e.g. http://www.buy.com/prod/micro-sd-sdhc-card-usb-reader-for-1gb-2gb-4gb-8gb/q/sellerid/23962916/loc/101/213271933.html) or in almost any store with a good selection of electronics.

I put a sd memory card from my camera in my computer. the computer hasnt uploaded the pictures or done anything.


Hi,
I guess you have a built in card reader? Is there any chance your camera SD card is SDHC? Some card readers including built in types and those that you connect to a USB port have trouble with the later and faster generation SDHC cards but are happy with plain old SD cards.
If you are using an external card reader, does it work in another computer? If it does work, then the problem is with your computer.
If you have a built in reader, can you borrow someones external card reader that you know and does work with SD and SDHC cards?
Can you try an older SD card in your current setup? If that works OK then it's the issue with SDHC that is your problem.
Easily fixed by buying yourself a $10-20 external card reader
Cheers,
Steve

SanDisk ULTRA II 8GB won't read when installed in a laptop. Works fine in the Digital camcorder. Trying to import the footage on to a Fujitsu tablet laptop (12 months old). Reads the standard 2Gb memory...


No, it's a hardware issue. Your 8GB card is an SDHC card (the HC stands for High Capacity), but the card reader in your machine is clearly only compatible with the older type SD cards. SDHC devices will accept SD cards, but devices designed solely for SD cards cannot read or format SDHC cards.

There is no firmware update for this, your only fix is to buy an external reader compatible with SDHC cards for connection via a USB socket. Most new readers are fully SDHC compliant, but check the specs for shelling out your hard-earned...
