Question about SanDisk ImageMate 12-in-1 USB 2.0 Card Reader

2 Answers

I am running Wondows SP Professional with all the latest updates installed (inc SP3). I have a Sandisk Imagemate 5 in 1 card reader and a Microdia Flashmover. When I put my SD Ultra II 8GB card in either of these and plug into my Pc through the USB ports (have tried a couple of different ports) they dont work. Sometimes I get the noise that indicates that a device has been connected to the PC, and sometimes I dont. No new drives appear in the "my computer" screen. They do appear in the list of items connected to the pc in the "safely remove hardware" list but only as generic USB devices. The microdia is not supposed to need any drivers. The SanDisk driver wont install and tells me that I need to have the device connected to install.... even when it is connected. I have a brand new MSI P31 Neo motherboard which runs the USB drives. Any advice you could give would be greatly appreciated.

    I am running Wondows xp Professional with all the latest updates installed (inc SP3). I have a Sandisk Imagemate 6 in 1 card reader. When I plug in my Sandisk Imagemate 6 in 1 reader, even without a card, it doesn't work. It comes up as four seperate drives in the My Computer page, but if you try to open one it asks to insert card. The SanDisk driver won't install and tells me that I need to have the device connected to install.... even when it is connected. This device worked properly with service pack 2, so I am guessing that is where the problem resides and Sandisk has not updated it's drivers.

I bought one years ago for a different computer. Seemed slow. Got a new computer and put it away. Pulled it out to try and realized it is slower than the $1 free shipping usb card readers from china. Meritline.com has great prices/deals. They take forever, but try one for a buck or two, and compare the difference. It may be all you need. If it works, buy one each time there is a sale for under a dollar with free shipping. They won't last forever, and if you keep a new one in the pipeline of shipping, you will be able to always have a working and backup pocket drive that I have found is much faster than this sandisk imagemate which has gone back to storage.

Make sure that the Generic USB Device is in the safely remove hardware dialogue then try to install.. or the problem may lie in the face that your usb in not compatible with that specific card...

Wont recognize my SanDisk Ultra 2 memory card, wont show up on desktop of my MacBook Pro.


Is there a memory card in the multi-reader? I don't believe that OSX will place an icon on the desktop before a card is inserted in the device. Just checking the basics first. Let me know.

UNABLE TO ACCESSMY 4GB MICRO SD CARD


Your memory card reader lacks SDHC compatibility. You must either update your pc card reader to one which is compliant with SDHC or use a cheap external card reader to do the job.

SD and SDHC cards look the same and fit the same slots, but they have significant technical differences which older readers cannot handle.

It says that the disc is not formatted and asks if I want to format it.


You can't use the card until its been formatted.

Formatting cleans all current data off the card.

If its a camera card, format it in the camera using the camera menu. Otherwise it still may not work.
