My Acer 3692WLMi does not read my Fuji 8 gig SDHC card but it will read my Panasonic 2 gig SD card. Can someone give me an answer/solution. Thanks C


While I'm not directly familiar with this Acer model, it looks to be an older laptop. It's almost certain that it was built prior to the SDHC cards being created - a lot of older memory card readers are not able to read the High Capacity (HC) flash cards. I actually own a couple of devices that also would not read the 8GB card.

To test, I would recommend finding a newer USB SD card reader that you could either borrow or purchase (they're usually not too expensive) to see if that reader could get the information from the SDHC card.

If that works, the problem would be that your flash card reader does not support the higher volume cards. This is the most likely possibility.

If it doesn't work, there may be an actual problem with the SDHC card itself.

Hope this is helpful!

I have just purchased a casio EX- H5 what sdhc memory do i need or which one is best.


Your camera can use SD or SDHC cards. I recommend SDHC because of their larger capacity. If you plan to take videos, I recommend a class 6 or better SDHC card of 8GB or more. Enjoy your new camera...it's getting very good reviews everywhere.

I purchased a new memory card (sandisk sdhc ) it will not format?


Get a new camera :-)

Seriously, the Z740 is designed to work with SD cards, not SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the camera, they will not work. You need to buy SD cards 2GB and smaller.

SanDisk ULTRA II 8GB won't read when installed in a laptop. Works fine in the Digital camcorder. Trying to import the footage on to a Fujitsu tablet laptop (12 months old). Reads the standard 2Gb memory...


No, it's a hardware issue. Your 8GB card is an SDHC card (the HC stands for High Capacity), but the card reader in your machine is clearly only compatible with the older type SD cards. SDHC devices will accept SD cards, but devices designed solely for SD cards cannot read or format SDHC cards.

There is no firmware update for this, your only fix is to buy an external reader compatible with SDHC cards for connection via a USB socket. Most new readers are fully SDHC compliant, but check the specs for shelling out your hard-earned...

It doesn't read 8gb sd cards on internal sd drive


There are two types of SD cards. The first, standard type, had a capacity limit of 4GB. But quite soon the technology advanced and higher capacity Flash memory has been developed, so the standard had to be revised - and SDHC was born (HC stands for High Capacity), which includes cards having 4GB and above.
There is an overlap, as you can see, because there are 4GB CD cards, and 4GB SDHC cards on the market.

Now your DELL is an older machine, and it's card reader is not compatible with the new SDHC standard. And it will not be, even with a BIOS update.

You have two options: find a 4GB SD card (they are hard to find, majority will be SDHC) and stick with this capacity, or purchase an USB SD/SDHC card reader, which is cheap, and use it to transfer files to/from your 8GB card.

Formatting troubles for a 8gb Sandisk Micro SDHC


Hi Tony,

Have your My Computer window open and re-insert the card into the reader. If it doesn't show immediately, then right click and choose refresh. It should show up then.

Sd Card reader not recognising SDHC cards


this is from CNET:

"SD and SDHC compliance
If your computer's internal card reader works with 2GB (or lower) SD cards but fails to read a 4GB (or higher) SDHC card, then the computer's internal reader is not SDHC compliant.

This same logic also applies to digital cameras, if the digital camera reads 2GB (or lower) SD cards but fails to read a 4GB (or higher) SDHC card, then the digital camera is not SDHC compliant.

SD and SDHC specifications
The initial SD card specification defined the interface for cards only up to 2GB capacity. The subsequent SDHC specification was developed to provide increased capacity of 4GB - 32GB cards. Computers and other products purchased before 2008 may not be SDHC compatible. Computers and other products purchased before 2007 are not SDHC compatible.

Verifying the card reader slot
If the card reader slot on your computer does not have the SDHC logo, it is most likely not SDHC compatible and will only read cards up to 2GB capacity.


Other options you can use to read files on your SDHC card
If your computer's card reader is not SDHC compatible, you have 3 options available:

1. You can connect your camera (or other device) that works with SDHC to your computer using a USB cable that came with the camera. You should be able to transfer files to the computer this way.

2. You can contact you computer manufacturer to see if they have a free firmware update for your model that will make it SDHC compatible

3. You can buy inexpensive SanDisk SDHC card readers that will connect to your computer's USB port."
