    Same problem here, running Vista 64. Blue light is on, drivers are up-to-date, but there's an error listed in Device Manager ("This device cannot start. (Code 10)"). Device works on iMac and MacBook.

I opened the reader mechanically by unscrewing the two screws beneath the rubber pad in the bottom. I saw that two pins were pushed out of the connector. By carefully pressing them back in again I found that after closing the unit and carefully inserting a CF card it was working again Yipee!!

Need the driver


Hello Wally,

I am not sure about the compatibility issues regarding vista and your software. BUT, If you do have a USB then that means you can use a portable memory card reader. It is always easier to transfer files via USB (with card reader) than by connecting the camera and using a specific software.

Plus, portable memory card readers are very cheap and very useful!

My computer (desk top) vista does not detect sd card ?


I suspect that your SD card is not formatted with the proper drive letter. See below for adding a drive letter to your SD card.

When you reformat an SD Card, Windows overwrites the drive letter and the operating system cannot recognize the drive without a drive letter. You can add a drive letter to it if you open "Help and Support" and go to the Disk Management and it will describe it. You can also type in the search box "Disk management" and it will take you to the window that allows you to manage your disk, and you can add a drive letter, or format.

I need to know how to use the Sandisk card reader. can u give me instructions?


You should be able to plug the device in. Most operating systems will recognize the device and treat it as new hard drive.

Are you getting a request for a driver? If so, first let Windows look for the driver.

Sandisk is not being recognized on my computer


SOLUTION 1 - Verify if minimum system requirement is met.
SanDisk card readers support Windows Vista, Windows XP SP2 and Windows 2000 SP4.

For MAC users, see
Troubleshooting USB device on MAC



SOLUTION 2 - Verify the reader's status under Device Manager.

STEP 1 - Connect the reader to the PC

NOTE: It is recommended that you plug your card reader to the back USB port on your PC to ensure that there is enough power from the USB port for the card reader to be detected properly.

STEP 2 - Check under Device Manager
1. Right-click My Computer.
2. Select Manage.
3. On the left pane, click Device Manager.

NOTE: The card reader will appear in two places: Disk Drives and Universal Serial Bus controls as USB Mass Storage. If there is a yellow exclamation point (!) or question mark (?) next to the device, try to refresh the drivers.

STEP 3 - Refresh the drivers
1. Right-click the entry with the error mark, select Uninstall.
2. On the top menu, click Action, and then click Scan for hardware changes.

STEP 4 - Verify if the reader is detected
1. Double-click My Computer.
2. Look for the card reader under Devices with removable storage.


SOLUTION 3 - Try other USB ports.
A yellow exclamation point (!) under Device Manager usually means that the device is not receiving enough power. If the reader is not receiving ample amount of power from the USB port, it may not function properly.


SOLUTION 4 - Change the drive letters

NOTE: The SDDR-89 reader should show 4 drive letters under My Computer.

Card reader with vista will read all cards except 2gb sandisk


If you have another computer with xp on it, I would download the pictures of the stick first. Then I would stick the card back in the vista machine and format the card. Your vista doesn't read the older file system. BE SURE TO BACKUP IT THE FILES FIRST BEFORE FORMATTING!

SD800 no longer recognized!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Best solution for SDHC is a high speed card reader.
One that hooks up via Firewire.
Some of the compatible cameras with the higher capacity, faster cards are not recognized when connected to the computer... great work around and downloads are quicker too.

Will Sandisk yltra II 4gb card work with Nikon D40?


I assume you mean Sandisk Ultra..and the answer is Yes it will work fine.

A good choice card also..

Just beware that some computers will need the SDHC reader.
For example my SDHC cards can be read in XP without the reader but my Vista machines need the reader.

Good luck and happy shooting :-)

Not recognized by pc


im running Vista Ultimate - I get the same problem. Just try to install/re-install the driver. It's how I got it to work, but after every connection you gotta do it again. My guess is this camera isn't Vista certified. You can always buy a memory card and use that for the pictures.
