Question about Cameras
It shows up on my pc, but it will not let me use any sd cards in it. it was working fine back in september. i dont know what went wrong. i didnt do anything to it. now all it does is display a orange light, will not let me use any memory card at all in it, and trust me, ive tried every card that'll fit in this thing. help
Card readers can malfunction for various reasons. First, try using this (USB) card reader on another PC/laptop ? If it works on another computer, then a likely problem is the card reader driver on your PC. You may want to go through a "device" test first on your PC, to make sure that the device is functioning properly. Then, locate and download a software driver (for this card reader), and install it. [ Yes, when you first use / insert the card reader into the USB port, the PC automatically will locate, download and install the driver on your PC... like any plug-and-play device.] So, if the device isn't working anymore, the driver may have been lost or corrupted. And recovering them may be possible from your backup ... when the device was still working properly.
If the card reader doesn't work on any other PC's, then it's likely that the card reader is "burnt" out. These are inexpensive circuits and (very) disposable items.

SOURCE: memory card cannot read!!!
sometimes lapstops and PCS as well as Cameras can go out of line. That is the formatting in a particular PC may not be able to be read in another.
In you case this may not be so, as the card now cannot be seen. It would have been interesting to see if it could have read it before it was formatted by your laptop. Try another card in the camera first. If no other card can be read then the problem is on the read head of the camera.
This may be just dirt or damage, and it will have to be repaired. But try another card first as the card is cheaper than a repair.
Thanlks for using FIXYA

check the manual for any such thing like "memory card problem" or open the page that talks about it, it may contain useful info
usually there is a preferred type recommended to use
using a memory card that was installed in other cameras may change its format or file structure, this may cause your camera not to recognize it, try formatting the card and then install it again, most cameras have a "format" option in the menu, try it out
there might be a "reset to factory defaults" option, this may reset your camera to the way it was originally it was in, could solve it

If you connected the camera to the computer with a USB cord to download your pics and then just yanked out the cord without using the "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right corner of your screen, the card may have been corrupted. Replace it.
