Unfortunately you need more than a driver. There are hardware differences between SD and SDHC cards and if a device such as a card reader wasn't designed to read SDHC cards then merely updating a driver won't do anything. You can buy an SDHC-compatible card reader which plugs into an available USB port for as little as $8 (certainly much less than $60).
The SD standard has a limit of 2 GB. All SD cards with larger capacity, like 4 GB, are non-standard and may exhibit any number of unexpected problems (such as not being recognized by various card readers.
To read this card in your computer, you may have to get a new card reader. And, unfortunately, there is no real way to tell if a given card reader will work with your 4GB card until you try it.
Checked on there web site says they can handle 32 GB cards. But you said something interesting you said you have SDHC cards, which are NOT the same as hd cards. So while a device may take one cared they will not take another card.
Not sure what the difference is but different they are. Try a larger SD card if you can find one, probably find the SD format will work fine but SDHC not at all.
Formatting the card may fix the problem however you will loose all the data on the card. I have a solution here that can help you but you need a SD Card Reader on your computer to back up the files.
1. Put the SD Card in your Card Reader. 2. Connect it to your PC. 3. If the window pop-up like asking to open with what program select Open as File.
4. If the window does not pop-up, Go to My Computer/Computer. There should be the SD Card Memory. 5. Backup all the save file in your SD Card in other word copy the whole SD card. Save it in your computer. Make sure you remember where you put it. 6. Reformat the SD Card by Right Click and click Fromat
7. Tick Quick Format
8. After it finish formatting, Try open the SD Card. It should be empty. 9. Put back all the copied file back into SD Memory Card. 10. Plug it on your DS. Check the files. Play and Enjoy

Newer cameras may have SDHC cards - these have a high capacity. Older computers can't read the newer SDHC cards - they can only read the old SD Cards. The SD card and SDHC cards look exactly the same. The SDHC card will probably say "SDHC" on it somewhere. Fortunately you can buy a USB SDHC card reader for a computer for around £2 on amazon. I would buy one of those. You could search the internet for "usb sdhc card reader".
I had a similar problem not long ago. The SD and SDHC standards are different. SD only goes up to 2GB, and SDHC (high capacity) goes higher than 2GB. THe problem is that SD card readers aren't capable of reading SDHC cards, even though the card will physically fit into the card reader slot. When you insert an SDHC card into an SD card reader, the reader attempts to read the format, and locks up the OS while trying. You'll need to get an SDHC card reader and use it separately like through a USB port or something.
The cards used by the Canon Sureshot are SD cards and very common. The HP 8530 if it has a card reader added as it is not standard according to HP is likely to support SD cards. I would however suggest to spend the extortionate sum of less than a fiver and buy one of the many card readers advertised on Ebay which will fit into your USB port. I have just bought several for less than a fiver including P&Pand they will read upto 92 different types of card. The following is the location on Ebay so just cut and paste it. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/92-in-1-USB-2-0-Memory-Card-Reader-Writer-MMC-SD-M2-CF_W0QQitemZ220293045447QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item220293045447&_trkparms=72%3A1437|39%3A1|66%3A2|65%3A12|240%3A1318&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14
One final point. Wherever you buy one from make sure it will read SDHC cards which a lot will not. The above does. Nope this helps.
SDHC cards are secure digital cards, and may not be supported by some hardware. Please check your manual for the card reader and printer. If the card reader is a few years old it may not support it. The printer on the other hand could be a limit on card size. I have seen a lot of equipment that only supports up-to 2GB cards.
