PNY FPTS-S SmartMedia Reader/Writer isnt reading cards

I bought an old camera online. It takes Smart Media cards, so I bought one and a reader/writer. The card is working fine in the camera, but when I plug the reader into the usb port on my pc, Windows is saying "please insert disk into drive I:". Is there something I need to do for it to read the card? I've never dealt with these card before.

I suspect that the "Portable Media Serial Number Service" local service is not running.

You can check this by opening the Control Panel<AdministrativeTools<Services. Look for the above service and make sure it is running. If not set it for "Automatic" and click the "Apply" button, then "Start" by right clicking the service and click "Properties".

Let me know if this works!

Hello:

Usually the disk has a little small switch, move it to unprotect the disk.
If your disk does not have an little small switch or button, Use directly an utility program to delete the normal partitions and format the disk.

Thank you for using FIXYA!

Try updating you drivers for your digital media reader. Also check your dcos to see if the DMR will read a 2GB card

SOURCE: Digital Concepts 51-in-1 Card Reader my PC can't read SIM card

I have the same card reader and the driver disc that comes with it is a Sim Card software. KWood is correct go to sakar.com under card readers if you have the same model as me it is the CR-75 it has links for the drivers, pdf of the manual and sim card software. I have not used sim cards so can not guarantee it works, but the info claims you can backup as well as edit your sim card data.

SOURCE: Sigma card reader/writer doesn't recognize my new SD card

Hello,

What I suspect here is that, the USB port that you are using is a USB 1.0 port, which has a lower voltage not enough to power on your Storage drive.

In this case, there are two things you can do,

1. Change the USB port you are using for the storage drive to a USB 2.0 one (Just keep Checking all the ports one by one in case you dont know which one it is).

2. If your Storage drive has external power facility, just plug it in an external power first, before connecting it to the system.

If there are no USB 2.0 Ports on your system at all,

then just go to any electronic store and tell them you want to buy a USB 2.0 Expansion card.

and if it is a laptop, A USB 2.0 PCMCIA card.

Install it on your system, and connect your external drive through it.

Hope this helps you out.

Goodluck

While trying to put pictures on computer, after 15 seconds of downloading the pictures it disconnects LED says usb error and goes back to question disk or digital


i had this problem before.Mine was that,for some strange reasons, the USB cable from the camera wasnt getting good contact with the USB port on my pc.So anytime i was transferring pictures, its stops and tells me error.All i did was to stop using the cable and i bought a media card read/writer since my pc did not have a media card reader by then.Now all i do is insert the media card from the camera into the reader and transfer my photos

I have a reader-writer box for a Viking Rose machine that is missing the dongle. Is there any place I could get just the dongle?


The dongle is only available with the software when you buy it. The dongle alone doesn't run the reader/writer box. The dongle is the code key for the software that allows you to send designs to the reader/writer. So purchasing new software (which also gets you the new dongle) is what you'll need to do if you want to send designs to the programmable card. Another issue you may have is that the older reader /writer box that uses a parallel port hook up, doesn't work with the new software. So if you have an old reader /writer, you'll also need a new usb reader / writer box. The new reader / writer also comes with a new programmable card.

Transfering from smart media card to cd


Hi,

The simplest would be to read the contents of the media card/camera connected through the USB port of a PC and burn it on the PC's CD/DVD burner. Alternately, instead of the camera/USB/PC/CD burner, you can use a memory card reader for the memory card. Requirements would then be:
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

SmartMedia - how to download images without USB cable


get a new cable. or a new card reader. i prefer card readers as i can take my camera around to various events, and if a friend wants an image, he can attach the reader to his computer (if nearby) and get what he wants.
are you sure your computer can directly read smart media cards?
possible it does, but not that common unless its fairly new.

Reader/Writer box


You might need an update for your reader writer box. The one you have might be old and that is why it does not recognizes it. Just go to the manufacturer's site and download an update for your reader/writer box.

Smartmedia Panorama mode


I don't know what you are doing, but my Nikon 4500 has a panoramic feature. It has nothing to do with the memory card. When you put it in panorama mode, on the second and subsequent shots, it shows about 1/3 of the previous shot in the viewfinder. You line that up with your present shot, and take the picture. The Nikon software, on a computer, can probably stitch the photos back together. You can do the same thing in an image editing program.
