My Compag will not read an 8 GB SD card at all but it reads 1 and 2 GB just fine. Is anyone else having this porblem? Is it just not compatible? Is there any way I can fix it?

Hello, unfortunately SD cards are getting larger and larger capacities and your Compaq is only able to read Max 2Gb.
However there are external card readers that will read your 8Gb.
Hope this FixYa's problem?

My Pantech sd card reader is not working


I don't know what machine you are using or the SD device GBs. Older machines sometimes do not read any SD over 2GBs. That said, there may be updated drivers for your machine and devices. Could be the file format isn't compatible. Hard to say with little info to work from.

Computer Cannot read my SD Card


STOP SD MEMORY CARDS ARE NOT ALL THE SAME !This is a very common issue as of late because of the fairly recent addition to the market place with the "HC" and "XD" Cards. I have found most computer older than 2008 wont read HC and XD cards however I'm sure there are USB card readers that can fill this gap available at your local pc shop. Please look Carefully at these different formats Standard SD: 1 MB to 4 GB readable by almost all computers most often up to 2GB rarely up to 4GB 6468175.jpg

SDHC: 4 GB to 32 GB Most older Computers Cannot read the the HC format, good however for NEWER devices such as camera's, video cameras and recent phones (my cannon powershot S80 will NOT read HC format, nor will my 2007 laptop.)
266e5be.jpg

SDXC: 32 GB to 2 TiB same limitations as above, Great cards for Digital Video Camera though!
8fc5646.jpg
here is a wikipedia note "Changes to the interface of the established format have made some older devices designed for standard SD cards (≤4 GB) unable to handle newer formats such as SDHC (≥4 GB). All SD cards have the same physical shape, which causes confusion for many consumers"
So.. in closing MAKE SURE your device supports HC and or XC before your purchase one! Also be aware that most of these cards have a lock switch on them to write protect the data, located on the side of the card. It MUST be in the Unlocked position to operate normally. Hope this helps someone out there. please use the thumbs up if it clears up anything for you! Gurvy

Laptop wont read sd card


You do not say, but before ejecting an SD card you should use the Safely remove hardware feature. If you do not do so you may damage your SD card, and you run into problems such as you describe.

My Pavillion dv 1000 wont read a micro SD card (in adapter) My camera recognizes and uses the card fine (with adaptor). My laptop recognizes standard sized SD cards fine also. It is not a HC micro SD. ...


If its above 2 gb most older laptops won't because the card is in FAT and not FAT 32. cards 4 gb and over are written differently you can hook your camera up to your computer and transfer then that way or purchase a HCSD card reader for higher capacity cards.

Computer not finding SD card, I put the SD card in like normal but nothing happens. I go into computer and it does not show up there either


SD cards are not created equally! There is so much more to know than just the capacity.
There are many things about SD cards most people are not aware of. After having numerous problems with my cards, I thought I would share what I learned, mostly from online articles, trial and error!
There are SD cards (Secure Digital)
SDHC cards (SD high capacity)
and SDXC cards (SD extra high capacity, high performance)
Speed Class: There may be a C with a number inside the C printed on the card, (or a U with a 1 in it) - if there is no C or U on your card, it is a C2 card.
C2 is for basic data and photo use and has a slower processing speed.
C4 and C6 are acceptable for up to basic video.
C8 and C10 are high performance, fast processing speeds - and cost more.
The U1 symbol indicates fastest processing speed available, and will cost the most. For large size, HD videos.
If you are trying to use a basic SD2 card (no C rating or C2 rated) for a high quality or high speed video or large RAW photo, you may have problems with your device. The card may not be able to keep up speed-wise. These are generally older, or lowest priced cards. More information and photo examples on the speed class here: https://www.sdcard.org/consumers/speed/speed_class/
Your device will read SD cards up to the capacity it is capable of. A device with SDHC capability will be able to read basic SD cards, but might not be able to read an SDXC card, so you may think you have a defective card when you actually just have a device that does not have the capability to read it.
If your computer's SD reader or peripheral card reading device has an SD card reader and it cannot read SDHC (high capacity) or SDXC (extra high performance/capacity) it will reject or not see the card and you might think you have a defective card. Put the card in your camera or other device you are going to use it for, and then using the USB cord that came with the device, plug that into your PC. The PC will be able to read the card that way, edit it, etc.
After copying all files on the SD card to your computer, you may wish to format the card before using it again. When formatting the card, IMPORTANT: Make sure you have copied all the data you want to keep onto your hard drive, and make sure it is formatted FAT32. I kept formatting a card FAT (which was the default for this card), and the recordable capacity of the card kept getting smaller...and smaller...a 2GB card was only allowing 350, 250, 125 MB of data to be stored on it! I kept hitting a brick wall trying to copy files onto it. I kept formatting the card, thinking there was some de-frag issue or corrupted portion, and the capacity of what it would store kept diminishing - until I formatted the card FAT32. ONLY THEN was the card able to store to its true capacity. I was able to do this in Windows in Explorer - right click the drive the SD card is in, select Format, verify the Capacity (card size), verify the File System (use the pulldown menu to select FAT32 if it is not selected), and then click Start and allow the computer to remain undisturbed until the format is complete. I found a web page that covers this: http://pvillecomp.com/
There is an SD website that offers a download for proper formatting of your SD card, with downloadable instructions. I was using Windows to format my SD cards, but the SD website recommends using software that specifically formats SD cards. Here is the site: www.SDcard.org. Click the Downloads section.
Some older devices can only handle smaller SD cards (2 GB or smaller), so if your device cannot read a particular SD card...check your owner's manual. There is usually a limit to the size, capacity, speed, type, etc. of the cards each device can handle.
It is also possible to partition an SD card so it can be read by more devices, or separated for organization purposes. I prefer smaller SD cards when possible to avoid a huge loss if the card becomes damaged, lost, etc., but for those who have cards that are 16+ GB in size they may want to partition them. Here is a website for that:

Hope this helps!

My toshiba laptop doesnt read SDHC card


sdhc cards are not backwards compatible with sd card slots. sd cards however are backwards compatible with sdhc card slots. newer card slots and readers are sdhc and sd ready but i'm afraid your only option is to buy a usb sdhc card reader. normally the 52 in 1 readers and ones like that work well and really don't cost a lot on ebay. the only other thing you could try is to put the sdhc card in an sdhc device (such as a camera) and link it up to the laptop that way.

SD card reader


1) There is SD card reader on pavilion dv 1000, so you need adapter in which you insert mini SD card to make it SD
2) If you have that adapter, check adapter. Maybe it's broken.
3) If your card is biger, like 2GB or higher you may try updatenig drivers (I read on one web page: " There was a software update for support of reading and using higher memory SD cards, for my pavilion ZV5000, on the HP Software update website." )
