Mikomi card reader



I just bought a mikomi card reader and although the computer can see the reader it doesn't seem to be able to see the card when I put it into the reader.  When I plug the usb into the computer a red light comes on on the reader, when I put the compact flash card into the reader a green light also comes on.  When I go into windows explorer I can see the extra drives but when I click on any of them I get an error message asking me to insert a disc.


I am using windows vista.

Re: mikomi card reader

I also have one of these readers and bought a 4gig SD card. When I put it into the reader, I also had the same error message to insert a card into the drive. I was told by a colleague that the reader may not be able to read a card bigger than 2 gigs.

You may have to check the manufacturers website for a vista compatible driver (as it seems that the generic driver is not working here.)

While taking pictures my camera all of a sudden froze and said card error, tried putting memory card on computer but it won't read it have tried using recovery programs but it freezes them please help

If your memory card is 4GB or larger, AND if your computer is two or more years old, your computer's card reader might not be able to read the newer 4GB SDHC card. In that case, just purchase an inexpensive USB card reader from WMart, or Amazon (here's an example). Try a different card reader first to see if you can directly copy and paste the pictures from the card onto your hard drive. If the new card reader doesn't see the files, then try recovery software. Here's some freeware to try. If the software still doesn't see the card with the new card reader, you may next need to try the corrupted card procedures described at the bottom of this linked article.

I dont know how to put music on the sandick

This seems to be your memory card, pls put your card in the memory card reader if you have that in your system if you dont have that in your system then buy an external USB memory card reader.Once you put your memory card in the memory card reader it will be scanned by operating system and you will see your memory card in my computers of your system, it will most probablly look like an hard drive, you can then copy paste your songs in that drive and you are done.

Hi my sandisk 8gb memory card seems not to be working and I don't understand. When I put it in the adapter and insert it in my computer nothing work at all. Help please. Thanx,

First if possible try it on another computer, if it doesn't work on it then it's dead (However in my 15 years of I.T. i haven't seen one actually die yet) If it works on the other computer then you will just need to reinstall the usb software on your other computer.

I cannot upload pictures/ videos from my PNY 8GB memory stick.

The newer large capacity cards in cameras designed for smaller capacity cards seem to have trouble interfacing with our computers. The best best is to get a high speed firewire memory card reader and attach it directly to your computer.
This should allow your computer to recognize your card and also allow you quicker downloads.

How do you put songs onto your micro sd memory card?

Well as far as I know you have to connect the memory card into the adapter and connect the adapter to a card reader(a kind of a box like thing which only that can read the memory cards). This card reader you have to connect to the computer and just copy and paste the song and then reconnect
Any probs just let me know!?
