Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I have a Canon PowerShot A620 camera with a memory card. Up until 1 week ago the computer would read the memory card. I now put the card in and the green light is on but nothing happens on my desk top. My drive is not listed under devices with removable storages. What has happened. I want to be able to read the memory card.

    I appreciate your effort. When I put the memory card into the PC slot, it is not identified, consequently I cannot desiginate a drive for the program to format the disk. More suggestions appreciated.

    Thank you

I have the same problem, but when I shut down the computer or try another day it will work just fine. So weird! Usually when it doesn't read the card, I just put the memory card back into the camera, plug it into the usb and read it that way. Always works.

What would cause a Dell Inspiron 580 that powers on but display nothing on the screen?


Some types of memory will only work as matched pairs, try only using two sticks of the same type, Otherwise check your memory and graphics card are seated properly, remove the power cable to the monitor for a few minutes then plug in, check you haven't loosened the monitor cable. Do you get anything onscreen? if you get start up then check BIOS see what memory it reports & the graphics settings. Its most likely something loose or the memory.

The SD standard has a limit of 2 GB. All SD cards with larger capacity, like 4 GB, are non-standard and may exhibit any number of unexpected problems (such as not being recognized by various card readers.

To read this card in your computer, you may have to get a new card reader. And, unfortunately, there is no real way to tell if a given card reader will work with your 4GB card until you try it.

Acer 5920 does not work with sandisc 1gb memory card


Your Minolta camera uses file format, which is not recognized by PC and vice verse. When you insert, PC can't read it, and asks to format. But when it is formatted for PC, your camera can't read it. Try to format it in camera, if it's not possible, then get a new memory card and use USB cable to copy images.

The memory card reader on your computer may not be able to read memory cards over certain capacities (4 GB).
To use your higher capacity memory card without locking up the computer, do one of the following:
  • If you are using the card in a camera or other device, you can attach the device to the computer using a USB or FireWire cable. When connected, most devices appear in Windows as a Removable Disk and can be used in the same way as the card reader.
  • Purchase a USB memory card reading device that plugs into any open USB port. Make sure the USB device is capable of reading SDHC. These devices are fairly inexpensive and can be used in any computer that has a USB port.
If the card reader stops working after using Safely Remove Hardware, reset the cable connections and memory card firmware.

Memory card appears in My Computer but errors occur when writing or reading
If you are having problems reading and writing data to memory cards, use the following troubleshooting tips:
  1. Try a different memory card of the same type in the same slot. If the different memory card works, the card reader is good and the original memory card should be replaced.
  2. Some cards have a read/write security switch on the card. Make sure that switch is set to Write Enabled before attempting to write data to it.
  3. Make sure that the amount of data you attempted to store has not exceeded the capacity of the card.
  4. Inspect the ends of the memory cards for dirt or material closing a hole or spoiling a metal contact. Clean the contacts with a lint-free cloth and small amounts of isopropyl alcohol. Replace the memory card if necessary.
  5. Make sure the memory card is one of the supported types: CompactFlash (1, 2, and Microdrive), Memory Stick, MultiMedia, Secure Digital, or SmartMedia memory cards.
  6. Make sure the memory card is fully inserted into the slot.
    Remove the memory card when the light is not flashing and shine a light into the empty slot. Are any small pins inside bent? Replace the memory card reader or have the computer serviced if a pin is touching another pin. Straighten slightly bent pins while the computer is off using the tip of a mechanical pencil.
  7. If errors persist replace the memory card.

I use a SanDisk ultraII 2.0GB disk in my Canon PowerShot camera. I want to put the SanDisk into my HP8530f but I am not sure if it fits one of the slots in the media center. Can i insert it into this...


The cards used by the Canon Sureshot are SD cards and very common. The HP 8530 if it has a card reader added as it is not standard according to HP is likely to support SD cards. I would however suggest to spend the extortionate sum of less than a fiver and buy one of the many card readers advertised on Ebay which will fit into your USB port. I have just bought several for less than a fiver including P&Pand they will read upto 92 different types of card. The following is the location on Ebay so just cut and paste it.
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/92-in-1-USB-2-0-Memory-Card-Reader-Writer-MMC-SD-M2-CF_W0QQitemZ220293045447QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item220293045447&_trkparms=72%3A1437|39%3A1|66%3A2|65%3A12|240%3A1318&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

One final point. Wherever you buy one from make sure it will read SDHC cards which a lot will not. The above does.
Nope this helps.

Canon power shot sd110015 will not upload pictures to the computer. i put in the CDrom and installed it already but when i connect my camera it said that device software had failed.


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa.
