    Some readers have limitations.  Let me know your computer manufacturer if the reader cam with it, or the manufacturer and model of the reader and the memory that you are using.

    Flash drives? What does the book say that came with the computer? 
    Was it made to run a flash driver bigger that 2gb? Was their even a larger that 2gb flash drive available when your computer was manufactored?

Hi, you need to check your power supply to see how many watts it is. If you have a low wattage PSU then your 8GB card may need more watts to run. If you have a ow wattage PSU get a new one with more watts. Hope that helps.

Wont to upgrade graphic card my p.c has 2gig max ram in it wonts should i upgrade to to preform its best cheers mike

Depends on what kind of hardware you have
-Memory- 2 gb ram is "ok" if you use windows XP but if you have Vista or Windows 7 you should have a minimum of 4gb ram.
-Processor- if you have a Dual core processor you are ok, if you have a p4 or p3 you dont want to waste money on a new graphics card because it will not help you get better games, your processor and memory will slow you down instead.
So my advice is, if you have a OK computer, go ahead with buying a new graphics card if you computer is old and slow, DONT buy a new card! put your money on +2gb ram instead (cheap,and gives you more benefits) or maybe buy an "upgrade package" with new motherboard-memory-processor.
