Sakar Card Reader & Reading SD Card

My SD Card has photos on it. I have inserted it into an adapter. I then bought a Sakar 75 Card Reader (with 6 slots). I installed the software from the included disk, but I cannot see my photos.

How to reset the password memory card


Transcend??

Mini SD cards, or MicroSD cards, are used in digital cameras and portable media players to house digital media files.

MicroSD cards can house anything from 2GB to 32GB of information.
A write-protection feature gives the owner the ability to lock the MicroSD card to keep their files secure.

If you have a MicroSD card that is write-protected, you can un-write-protect it with a flip of a switch.
Insert your MicroSD card into the adapter that came with it.
Put the data side of the MicroSD card into the data side of the adapter.

Look for the write-protection switch on the left side of the SD adapter.
Flip the switch to the side that reads "Off."

Remove the MicroSD card from the adapter and replace it in the device you were using it with.

or you might

Feel along the lower right and left sides of the Micro SD card to find out if it has a built in write protection switch.

Move the switch over to the "On" position to turn on the write protection feature.
Check the front ports on your computer and see if it already has a built in card reading unit.

Purchase an external card reader that plugs into a USB port if your computer does not already have an internal card reader (see below).

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=card+reader&x=0&y=0

Plug the card reader into any open USB port on the computer.
Power on the computer and let the operating system finish loading.

Insert the card into the Micro SD slot on the card reader.
Wait for a new window to appear that will ask what action you want to take with the Micro SD card.

Click on the link that says "Open a folder to view files."
Right-click on a file if there is just one specific file you want to enable write protection for.

Click on the "Properties" link from the menu that will pop up.
Navigate to the "General" tab.

Click on the box marked as "Read Only" and then close the Properties window.
Close the window and then double-click on the "My Computer" icon on your desktop if you want to enable write protection for every file on the Micro SD card.

Right-click on the name of your Micro SD card in the list of computer drives.
Click on "OK" and then close the window.

Click on "Properties" and then navigate to the "Security" tab.
Scroll down to the heading labeled as "Permissions."

Click on "Deny" under the "Write" section.

or
1
Slide the switch on the left-hand side of the SD card. If the switch is broken, proceed to Step 2.
2

Affix a small piece of tape or paper to the top half of the gap where the slider should be. Do not permanently affix the paper as of yet. 3

Try the card in your computer, using the USB converter stick.
If the items on the SD card are available, copy them to your computer as a precaution.
If that did not solve the problem, proceed to Step 4. 4

Remove the tape or paper and reattach it to the other side of the gap if you mistakenly attached it to the wrong side.
If you are actually trying to unlock a micro or mini SD card, proceed to Step 5. 5

Toggle the switch on the left side of your SD Adapter if you are trying to unlock a micro or mini SD card.

Micro and mini cards do not have switches.
Instead, insert a micro or mini card into an unlocked SD Adapter to work with stored data.

SD Adapters look very much like SD cards and the switch works the same way.

Here are the ways for you to insert your microSD to your computer

1. Use "memory card reader" (this is probably the best way)

My Sandisk micro card works fine in my phone, but my computer nor my photo printer will recognize it when it is in the adapter that came with it. Is there something that has to be done with the adapter or...


Hello, it depends how old your equipment is as SD cards and SDHC are not necessarily compatible, so if your pc and printer were designed in pre-SDHC days, then you probably wont get any success trying to reading your card.
SD cards only support 2gb max, and in order to support larger capacity for the same style card, the mapping of SDHC cards is totally different, so SD-supported equipment can't 'understand' the new mapping circuitry.
There's some interesting reading in Wikipedia which might clarify things better than my explanation.
Of course, this might not be the solution, but it's worth trying out an SD card if you have one, but I've noticed that SDHC cards are being advertised as SD cards; the only clue that they're actually SDHC is in the capacity, ie, >2gb.

How to transfer music or pictures from my loptop to micro memory card


Many laptops have an SD card reader. If you do have one, you will need an SD adapter to plug the card in and then to put it in the laptop's card reader. If you do not have one on your laptop you will need to buy an SD card reader and an SD adapter.

Alternatively, you can try putting the microSD card into your phone or digital camera (if it does support one) and connect your phone/camera to the computer to access the data on the card.

I dont know where to put this


Hi, First insert the micro SD into its adapter which resembles a SD card itself but has a small opening at the bottom to insert the micro SD. The adapter should not b locked while inserting or removin the micro SD. Now insert the adapter in the card readers slot which should be connected to a PC via a USB. If its a card reader then insert the adapter with microSD in the right side top corner of the card reader with the adapters copper pins facing down. OR if u already have slots in ur CPU to insert the SD card install it there, Now transfer files to ur card happily. NOTE: Rename ur device so that next time when u plug it in the adpter n connect it to PC, u wont get confused. Just right Click on the drive icon in ur PC n select rename n just giv any name as u lik. Rate he soln dude Bye..........!

Computer is not reading my Micro SD, but phone is reading..


What size is the SD card in GBs? If it is larger than 2GB (4 or 8) do you have a SDHC card reader?
Also try formating the card first in the phone and then using it. Using it straight out of the package, while able to be written, my have difficultly with other devices reading the data.
