The Dynex 5-in-1 Reader may be too old to read high capacity secure digital cards. (HCSD) An 8 GB SD card is definitely going to be high capacity. Only the relatively newer SD readers can read the HCSDs.
Try putting in a 2 GB or lower size SD card and see if it works. If it does, then your card reader doesn't support higher capacity cards.
Put the memory-card into the card-reader.
Connect the card-reader to the computer.
Watch the "desktop" for a new icon to appear, representing a "removable-disk-drive".
Double-click on the icon to open the folder.
Drag-and-drag music files from your computer into the folder that you just opened.
I had this problem & after getting hung up on by dynex support and best buy I figured it out myself.
1-go to dynex site and download driver for mac http://www.dynexproducts.com/p-580-dynex-5-in-1-usb-20-mini-memory-card-reader.aspx
this file will be named something like DX-CRMN1 Setup.fit will be encrypted and will open up a document with only symbols if you don't have a decompressor or expander.
2-You will need to download the stuffit expander at http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/20954
3- once you download that open the expander which will open a window with a blue circle and four arrows around it. DRAG THE DYNEX SETUP FILE INTO THE CENTER OF THE BLUE CIRCLE
4-After a few seconds a file will appear on desktop labeled something like Alcor generic (if thats not the name for you just look on your desktop for a folder that wasn't previously there)
5- at this point put your memory card into the card reader and the lights should start flashing on the front and the card will be recognized. At this point iPhoto opened and I was able to import the photos.
HOPE THESE STEPS WORK FOR YOU & LET'S NOT BUY ANYMORE CRAPPY DYNEX PRODUCTS.
Yeah, if you just plug it into the computer and insert a card, the drive pops up on your screen. The CD is not required (thank God) and it WILL GET STUCK, so don't try to insert it. (I did...took me 15 minutes and some very small tweezers to get the stupid thing out!)
