Question about SanDisk 2GB microSD Memory Card
My computer is not reading one of my memory cards but it can read other memory cards that I have
Maybe the pins in the memory card are broken or there may be dust lodged in the memory card :D

SOURCE: memory card cant be read
Are you using a card reader? If yes, you need to isolate the problem. Please follow the steps below:
1. Try connecting your memory card reader into different USB port of the computer.
2. Try using different card reader to see if there's a problem with the card or with the reader.
3. Connect it into different computer.
4. Remove and reinsert the MicroSD in the card reader and make sure that the card is properly seated.
5. If the card reader and the computer are working but still unable to detect the MicroSD, try to reformat the card.
6. If same problem persist, return it to the store and have it replaced.
Have a great day!

Memory cards, also called memory sticks or MS cards, can create problems with a computer. Sometimes, a computer will not read the card or errors cause problems when removing files from the card to put them onto the computer.
Problems range from a virus on the memory card to inappropriate software on the computer. Fixing the problem partly depends on the cause of the problem, but making the card work is simple and takes only a few minutes.
Scan for viruses. Some viruses or worms infect MS cards.
A computer that suspects a virus might interfere with the memory card as a result.
Look for viruses or problems with the anti-virus software that won't allow the memory card to open. If a virus if found, remove the virus through the anti-virus software before opening the memory card.
Check that the computer has the appropriate software installed to read the card.
Some MS cards or memory sticks might require more updated software or specific software that is not on the computer.
If the software is installed, look for current updates and download any updates to determine if the problem is old software.
Open the control panel.
Click on "Add New Hardware" and see if it is available.
If the hardware for the memory card is not installed on the computer, this will allow installation.
Once installed, the card should read.
If the memory card is not showing up, the problem is often damage to the card, which prevents reading the card. If the card is damaged, it must be replaced.
Use an adapter.
Some memory cards are not designed for reading in a computer directly and require the appropriate adapter.
The adapter changes the data to the appropriate system for the computer to read it.
Hope this helps
