Sandisk card reader wont detect my sandisk card.

For awhile now my computer (Gateway MX8734) hasnt been able to detect anything when I insert my sandisk card. I need to know if there was anything I could do about it. I think I may have messed it up by yanking my sandisk card out too frequently. My card works fine in everything else. Just not my computer.

Hello,
This problem arises because your USB is not recognized by your computer. This issue can be solved by following the steps given below.

SOLUTIONS:

  1. Use the Device Manager to scan for new and recently installed hardware. From the start menu, select the 'Run' option. In the pop up box, type in Devmgmt.msc and then click 'Ok'. From the 'Action' Mmnu, click 'scan for hardware changes'. This will make Windows recognize any new devices that are installed. Now, close all device managers and control panels. Now see if your computer will read the USB device.
If the above method doesnt work, then try the following,

Disable power management of the USB hub. To disable the power management,

1.Click Start, and then click Run
2.Type devmgmt.msc in the Open box, and then click OK.
3.Expand the Universal Serial Bus controllers' node, and then follow these steps for each USB Root Hub that is listed:
4.Right-click the USB Root Hub and then click Properties.
5. Click the Power Management tab.
6. Click to clear the Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power check box, and then click OK.

PS: If you perform the following procedure on a laptop computer, you may reduce the battery life.

The memory card reader wont detect the card and when i put it in the camera it would ask me to insert a memory card...i got alot of pictures i have to recover...HELP


Please try your card into a card reader in a PC or laptop. If this detects in the laptop then your camera has the card contacts out of alignment. sometimes the contacts can shift off from the edge or can be broken. If this is opened the tips of contacts can be pulled up to contact with the sd card when pushed in so as to detect. If there is no detection in the PC then your card has a fault and it will good to contact Sandisk for support to recover your memory files.

Centros Secure Digital Card Reader Model No.4418951 will not read a SanDisk SDHC Card 4GB.


1. Safely remove the Card and Card Reader from your system.

2. Plug in the Card Reader to the system.

3. Now, insert the Card in the reader.

4. Let the system take some time to detect the devices.

* If the Card Reader donot read the card, try another card to check if there is problem with the reader or card!

* If the Card Reader still donot detect, check it with another system.

tell me if it works...tc! :)

Trying to download music from pc to Sandisk


You should be able to stick the sandisk into your pc, provided your pc has a card reader. If not, the usb from the zuma (while the sandisk is inserted, of course) should work just fine.
