There is. You'll need to download it from Toshiba's support page. Try this link:

Click the Downloads tab, and where it says Refine Search By: click the All Categories drop down menu, select SD. Run the donwloads available there.

You need to format the disk ....


The drives can be read by another computer, so the problem is most likely with OS/drivers on the HP giving the error. The specific drivers required to read each drive format could be missing/corrupt. Formatting shouldn't be performed on a drive that contains data unless backed up (redundantly). It may be possible to recover any lost data using free recovery software. Often a format preserves data, erases only the file directory.

I would try a system restore on the HP. If that fails to correct it install or upgrade format specific drivers (e.g. SD/SDXC drivers). Contact Magellan about the GPS: you may have formatted the device's system partition. It is unlikely your computer had the correct drivers to format that device, and it is likely formatted in an incompatible format (such as NTFS). Does Magellan provide a utility to read the device's memory? The SD card should be salvageable by formatting on another computer using the appropriate formatting utility. (Go to https://www.sdcard.org and navigate to their formatting utility.)

From that site: "If an SDXC memory card is used through the direct SD slot of a computer without SDXC driver installation, the card may not be recognized correctly and a message to prompt formatting may appear. In this case, do not format the SDXC memory card. It may erase the data on the SDXC memory card and format the card for a different file system, making it incompatible with SDXC devices."

My computer won't show my sd card on the screen


hello,

the reason your laptop wont show your sd card on the screen is because it is not reading the sd card.

it is not reading the disc either because
1. there may be a problem with the card reader,
2. there may be a problem with the slot on the laptop,
3. there may be a problem with the memory card.

to check if it is the card reader, try to use the same memory card reader with another sd card on another laptop and see if it will read it.

to check if it is the slot on the laptop, try to use a new sd card and a new card reader on the laptop to see if it works, if it does not, then you know where the fault is from.

finally, to test the sd card, try to use it on another laptop to see what happens. if it does not work then you can tell where the fault is from.

whichever the fault is, you can change them.

but if it is the card slot, you will have to open up the laptop and clean the slot carefully.

take care.

Memory card stuck inside Memory card slot.


Your only bet is a pair of tweezers, The SD slot is not "openable" When these fail the whole reader assembly is disconnected from the motherboard and replaced.

I would say try your local beauty supply store or a pharmacy for a longer thinner pair of tweezers.

Should that not work you have to decide which is the lesser of two evils paying for a tech to replace the component or just leaving the card in there and forego the use of the reader.

Another option is to use a heavy gauge sewing needle to try to push the micro sd card towards the front where yo can grab it with the tweezers.

MAKE SURE the battery is pulled out and the laptop does not have power.

SD card can't be detected by the computer


Did you install your memory card reader drivers?
If you didnt, install it and it will read your SD card.
The drivers should come with the CD that came with your laptop.

You can also purchase a usb SD card adapter, it is not costly.

Using multiple card slot


There will be a slot, the size of the SD memory card on the front edge or side of the laptop. The slot will be the same size as the slots in an USB memory card reader.
You can download a manual from the Toshiba WEB site.

You can download any/all the Windows XP or Vista device drivers and manual for your model laptop from the Toshiba WEB site from their download page.
Make sure you enter the model of your laptop so you can get the correct drivers and manual.

How can i use sd/mmc memory card reader on my laptop? ia am using dell inspiron 1525 model?


The SD/MMC memory slot is already configured to read standard and HDSD cards. Just remove the DELL blank from the slot by pushing it in until it clicks and release it. Then pull it out. Insert the SD/MMC card into the slot and push it in until it clicks. The DELL Blank is shorter than an actual SD/MMC card, so don't try to push the SD/MMC card any further than the 'click'. Remove by pushing in until it clicks, release, remove.

SD card slot problem


This is most generally a driver issue. Go to HP's support site and download the proper driver. It's more than likely a utilities driver.

Memory card not recognized


Try to put your sd card to the slot, and check device manager.
check if there is yellow question mark on the device manager.
if it is, it's driver problem, just update the driver.
if not, try with another sd card and if this still not working, it's your sd card slot has problem.
