Correct. The PI1505 will work with SD cards but not with SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in devices not designed for them. You can get a SDHC-compatible card reader which plugs into the USB port.
Go to device manager ( through control panel) and check if the sd slot reader is disabled. If so, enable it. If not, maybe the SD card is bad. Try another card. If the card is not bad, you may want to take the laptop to a computer technician or call DELL technical support if it is under warranty.
You could also purchase an external SD card reader from walmart or bestbuy and use that.
I am sorry to say but, the 6400/E1505 does not have an internal mic. You need External. Sorry.
Specs only show a MIC connection.

There are two types of SD cards. The first, standard type, had a capacity limit of 4GB. But quite soon the technology advanced and higher capacity Flash memory has been developed, so the standard had to be revised - and SDHC was born (HC stands for High Capacity), which includes cards having 4GB and above. There is an overlap, as you can see, because there are 4GB CD cards, and 4GB SDHC cards on the market.
Now your DELL is an older machine, and it's card reader is not compatible with the new SDHC standard. And it will not be, even with a BIOS update.
You have two options: find a 4GB SD card (they are hard to find, majority will be SDHC) and stick with this capacity, or purchase an USB SD/SDHC card reader, which is cheap, and use it to transfer files to/from your 8GB card.
You installed the driver for your card reader for the laptop. If its not recognizing any cards you put in there then that means the reader is bad and since that is integrated onto the motherboard, replacing the motherboard would be the only option in order to fix that problem.
