It may require software drivers. Go to the web site of the manufacturer and search for "drivers." Look for the model of the card reader you have. download the driver(s). There will most likely be directions with the download telling you where to install the drivers on your computer. Then restart, and try the card reader again.

Alienware area 51 card reader not recognizing 64gb exfat sd card


I would check you have all the latest updates for your Vista installation as I know for some versions of Windows extra updates are necessary for exfat support.

Does the SD card read; is it accessible; in other devices?

Windows xp does not recognize my ematic 8 pro series tablet. Do i need drivers?


Hello

What version of Windows XP are you running? Your best bet is to have Windows XP Service Pack 3.

The issue is that the tablet will appear in Windows as a "storage device". The problem is that Windows XP will likely require a driver to understand that your tablet is a memory storage device.

It appears you have two options:

1. upgrade to Windows XP Service Pack 3, reboot the computer and then connect the tablet and see if the OS can recognize your device

2. remove the SD memory card from the tablet and, using a SD card reader on your PC (which you may need to purchase), insert the SD card into the card reader and use this method to transfer the files to the card. Return the card to your tablet.

It appears that Windows Vista, 7 and 8 will recognize your tablet automatically.

SD card not recognized



What happens when you tried to plug-in SD card to the computer?


Have you made any recent changes to the computer prior to the issue?


To make the SDHC be recognized by the computer, we need to ensure that the card reader works in Windows 7 first. Please check if the card reader is recognized properly by the computer and you have installed the driver for it.


Meanwhile, you can plug some other storage cards to the card reader and see how it works.


I would suggest you to refer the link below
A Secure Digital (SD) card may not be recognized on a Windows 7 based computer.

Uninstall all the Generic USB drivers and reinstall.


1. Open Device Manager.

2. In "Disk Drives" dropdown, uninstall the "Generic SD/MMC USB device" drive.

3. Restart computer.

4. Insert SDHC card.




Hope this helps.

Sd card format software


Start up a computer with Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7. Insert the SD card into an external memory card reader or into the computer's built in card reader. If it the first time a SD card has been inserted into the computer, Windows will recognize the SD card and automatically install drivers to read the memory card.

Go to the computer view by clicking on the windows start menu icon in the bottom right corner of the computer. In Windows 7 and Vista click "Computer". In Windows XP click "My Computer"

Right click on the SD drive under the computer heading. A dialog box with different options for the drive will appear. Click on "Format" to bring up the formatting dialog box.

Select the type of formatting (also known as file system format). In Windows XP or Vista there are several choices including FAT, FAT 32, and NTFS. In Windows 7 there is an added choice called exFAT formatting. This is an improved FAT formatting type with improved meta data capabilities. Choose the formatting type, name if the drive if desired, check or uncheck the "quick format" option, and press the "Start" button. When the SD card format is complete Windows will provide a notification.

I have a LG dare cell phone and want to transfer some pictures to my Laptop. Lap top is running windows vista 64 bit. when I connect the usb the pc does not recognize the usb connection. It recognizes all...


Well, for music...
Install the supplied software for your Dare on your computer.
In "My Music" select "Sync".
You can now see your Dare as a USB device but only music is accessible. :{

For photos the easiest way is to use a micro SD card and a card reader.
Store or move photos from your internal memory on your Dare to the micro SD card.
Transfer the micro SD card to your computer with either a built in card reader or a USB card reader.

The next alternative is to use a program like BitPim which can be a little tricky and can delete or copy all of your personal data (images, tones, contacts, etc...) depending on which button you press. The two buttons look very similar. Great way to download free ring tones and upload to your phone for free.

Can't download music to mini sd for ATT 8525


There are 2 ways to do this.

The first is to get a microSD card reader, take the card out of the phone, put it into the card reader and plug that into your computer.
Then this will show up as a flash drive, and you will be able to drag-and-drop, or copy and paste.

The second is, when you have your phone connected to your computer, and ActiveSync is active, you can explore your phone and microSD card.

At the top of the ActiveSync window is the "Explore" button.
Click on it, and a new window should open up.
Click on "My Windows Mobile-Based Device", then "Storage Card"
You can drag-and-drop or copy and paste.

If you can't see the "Storage Card" folder, your phone may not recognize the microSD card.
The original Windows Mobile 5 (WM5), only recognized standard microSD cards up to 2GB.
You would have to upgrade the software/firmware to WM6 to recognize microSDHC cards of 4GB, 8GB and above.

It looks like you have Vista, I have XP, your results may vary.

Micro sd card not working


I'm having the same problem with a Transcend 4GB microSDHC card / microSD adapter. I have also found it probably has something to do with the card reader...either the card reader is an SD card reader trying to read an SDHC card OR the card reader is not able to read high-gigabyte SD cards (over 1 GB in some cases).
