Re: SanDisk Extreme Firewire Reader not recognized by...
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!!

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 operatingsystem 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.
Go into your controll panel and go to Add and remove programs. Once there Look for your software,"Corel paint shop pro x2" You should have an option to change or remove it. We want to change it. If you can change it then tell it to repair and do as prompted. If that option isent avalible simply reinstall the software.
Connect your sandisk to computer thne right click on my computer icon then click on MANAGE then clcik on disk management then you find removable media you see there unpartitioned space of your sandisk .
Just right clcik on it then create partition .
The next time you call do not wait to be fed B.S. ask for the supervisor.
They may make you hold in the hope that you get fed up of waiting this is normal practice.
If they say that the supervisor is unavailable then tell them you will hold.
When you get the supervisor (and you will eventually)
Ask for his name and ID number and write this down !
Ask to be put through to the head of complaints or an executive office.
You may be lied to again but that is normal practice dont accept the answer if they say they cant. THEY CAN !
Again they may make you go on hold. but persevere
You will eventually get through to a person wh CAN escalate the issue.
Get their name dept etc and write that down too
You really have to try and stay calm even though you may feel like ripping heads off chickens etc.
give them all the story and tell them you will hold while they try sort it out for you (this lets them know you are not going to be fobbed off)
If you dont like the explanation given or if it sounds too much like more B.S. then tell them you consider the answer as unacceptable and INSIST on speaking to someone else (preferably his superior)
It takes time and dogged determination but can and does pay off in many cases.
Overall sandisk quality has dropped quite considerably. The used to be a company that you could rely on for quality.
I am now the proud owner of more than 40 sandisc products that clients have had problems with and were either fobbed off or warranty would not cover. I cant repair any of them but I was thinking of making some form of decorative object from them
Install the necessary software provided with the handset, The connect the handset via datacable, when the type of connection window pops up select "USB mass storage" or "Data Transfer" mode, then you can access your data on the phone and copy it to the computer.
If you installed the disc that came with your camera into Vista and it still does not recognize the camera when you plug in your USB cable, one quick solution to get the pictures off of your card would be to purchase a card reader (approx. $20 here in the states). That is assuming that the computer does not have one built in. If it does, open the battery door on the camera with the camera off, and press on the card to eject it, put the microSDHC card into the SD adapter and plug that into your card reader into the SD slot. From there you should be ready to go.
