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 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.

ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.
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.
Hi, I highly recommend that you instead consider using a card reader to move the photos or videos to your computer. Card reader's do not require software (although Windows 98 and earlier may require drivers), are very inexpensive, are much faster downloading files from the camera, do not use the camera's batteries during the download, and are much less prone to file corruption of the photos during the download. Really, it would be better for the camera user if one of these was included with the camera instead of the cable and bundled software. You place the camera's card in the reader, plug the reader into the USB port, and your computer sees it as a hard drive. You simply copy/paste or drag/drop your photos onto your hard drive. For this simplicity, most professional photographers utilize card readers exclusively. You'll save yourself a lot of heartache if you convert to using one of these. Also make sure that you get a reader that is clearly stated capable of reading your card, particularly if you use SDHC, XD, CF, or MS cards.
If so then i suggest you purchase a card reader,
take the card out of the camera and put it into the the card reader,
plug that directly into your PC and transfer the photo's to your PC.
you don't have them on a memory card
but on the camera's internal memory, put in a memory card and transfer
the photo's to that using the camera's menu. Then you can use the card
reader to get your photo's on your PC.
Card readers are fairly
inexpensive and can cost anything from $2 - $40 (£1 - £25-30) Please
post back if you require anymore help or advice. Regards.
1. put card in computer and format
2. put card in phone, take a picture
3. open music app on phone (nothing should show up)
4. take out card, put in computer
5. copy songs to the newly created my_music folder
make sure all song filenames are only the song titles. all other information (artist, track number, album, etc, should go in the IDv3 tag as the phone will read this information).
I have 2 of these phones, and this is what seems to work for me.
1). Press Setup ensure you are showing 'General' tab 2). Enter 1389
this point a list comes up with all sorts of info. At the bottom is
Region Code 2. But I'm stumped as to how to change it. I've tried all
different key combinations I can think of. On other Mikomi players except the ds-306a (the Argos is a rebadged Mikomi ds-306a) you can then use the up or down arrows and cycle throw the region nunbers until you get to region 0. Odd that it doesn't seem to work on ds-306a. Perhaps someone else can figure the final steps out
