Mp8708 laptop, 2GB memory slot isn't being listed as source

I'm trying to upload pictures from my camera's memory card. The slot for the card isn't listed as a possible source for places to upload from. Is my laptop not recognizing that slot? I have the memory card in the slot and although the little pink light is on, and the blue light next to that is also lit, nothing happens.

    The brand of my laptop wasn't listed in my question, so I give you kudos for listing a variety of them in your answers, unfortunately gateway wasn't amongst them. However, it was at a Gateway site that I found the link to this website, so going there would just be going in circles.

    I want to upload movies and pictures from my digital cameras memory card. I can't figure out how to get the card reader open on my laptop. There is a piece of plastic blocking it that does not move.

I put a 2gb ddr2-667 memory chip in the single (only) memory slot in my gateway nx100x notebook pc. The pc will not boot up with the 2gb memory card. Is there a compatibility problem or do I have a ba


yes, there may be compatibility problem. your 2GB ram may be dead. try your 2gb ram on other notebooks. if it is working on other notebooks, then your ram is ok. your notebook will support maximum 2GB ddr2 memory per slot. your notebook may not be booting due to unsupported frequency of your ram. maximum supported frequency for your notebook may me 400Mhz, and you are putting a 667MHz ram into it. try to put a 400MHz 2GB ddr2 ram in your notebook.

How do I upload pictures onto my Dell d600


If your photos are stored on a SD memory card then remove the SD memory card from the camera and insert the memory card into an USB memory card reader. Connect the USB memory card reader into the USB port of your Dell computer. The Dell wiil detect the card reader as an external storage device, you can then open the folder on the memory card that contains the photos and then copy them to your computer.

RAM PROBLEM ON INSPIRON N4010


Go into your BIOS and set it back to factory default. After you do that look at the page that lists your memory and see if both 2GB memory sticks are recognized. If one of them still isn't being recognized. You'll have to physically go inside of the computer and look at your memory slots to see how much memory is in each slot. Its possible you might not see both 2 GB memory sticks. If you do see both then one of them might be bad and you would need to talk to that tech shop to get it replaced.

Do all compaq presario cq60 have a memory slot?


It has a memory card slot (left-side towards the front), but your particular memory card might be too big for the slot. There are several different variations of memory cards out now. Of course the newer the variation, the smaller that card is. This laptop is fairly new so it might not be compatible with your memory card. Does your camera have a USB cable for transferring pictures? If so, then just use that.

Memory stick photos to laptop


Connect a card reader and insert the memory card to this card reader and you can transfer the pictures to your computer. Now most of the card readers have slots to insert all types of memory cards, you can have any card reader from a local electronic shop.

Place for a memory card from digital camera to


It does not appear that this laptop has a media slot for you to put your memory card into. So you can use the USB cable that came with the camera - but I find that it is always very slow, and uses up the camera's battery pretty quick.

So you may be better off getting a USB media reader. you'd remove the memory card from the camera, put it into the slot in the reader, and plug the reader into a USB port. In My Computer you'd see a new drive pop up, and you could click on the DCIM folder, and then the 100XXXXX (where XXXXX is the name brand of the camera, or some portion of it) folder, and you can then cut and paste your pictures to the computer. If you Cut instead of Copy, it deletes the pictures from the media, so that when you put it back in the camera, it is blank and ready to take more pics.
