Re: Can not read SD card, game pad

You need to install your camera's drivers from the disk that came with it.
Unplug your camera from the computer >> insert the camera's driver CD >> install drivers >> restart the computer >> connect your camera via USB >> a windows pop up will let you know that it has found a new device. If you don't see the pop up this means your USB port is malfunctioning and it's normally from a malfunctionnig motherboard.

If you want to connect it through your card reader I'm affraid you need to buy a new card reader that supports 2G SD card. your current card reader does not supports 2G cards.

Kind Regards

Is there a spot for a sd card on the sony vgn-c140g

If there is one it will be on side or front of the computer. You can always buy a sd card reader that plugs into your usb port.

Try buying a SD Card Reader that reads many formats from Tiger Direct at:

When the site comes up just type: SD Card Reader in the white search box at the top of the page then click GO.

Or if you camera came with cables you can plug one end into the camera and the other end into the computer's usb port and turn the camera on. The computer will recognize it and you can search through the folders on the camera for the pictures.

Hp laptop will not pick up canon camera from any usb port

Did you install the Canon Camera software on the computer? If not, do it.

If the camera's software is install and it still is not picking up the camera then you can buy a Card Reader that plugs into the usb port. You would take the SD card out of the camera and put it into the card reader. You can buy a card reader that reads multiple formats for less than $15.00

Just click the link below and in the white search box a the top of the page when the site opens type: USB Card Reader and press GO.
When the search results are returned sort them by Price Low to High.

Can not read sd cards. The blue light goes on after introducing the SD card in the slot (the small one on left side), but "My Computer" does not show the folder even after refreshing.

Is you're card a SD HC (High Capacity) Card (usually > 4GB)?

Some older readers dont read the HC cards, if so the solution may be to buy a usb reader that will read SDHC cards.

I can't get my sd card to work in the computer. Do I need something to make it work.

No you don't need something to make your sandisk(sd) card to work when you place it in the sd slot of your computer, now if your sd card is a hc or high compacity card then it would not work because the sd card reader is not new upgraded enough to the point of reading the hc cards if its not a hc card then your sd card reader may be broken you can buy a good new sd card and more port hub to work on your computer but i would check first if it is your card not the card reader.

Sd card slot is not working

Check on the manufacturer's website, and check your SD card, I've heard of some SD card readers on laptops not being able to read High-Capacity SD cards. One way you can test, is go down to your local supermarket and just buy a small, el-cheapo SD card and plug it into the computer and see if it reads. If it does, then chances are pretty good the SD card you were originally trying to use, is a HC-SD Card, and your computer does not support them. If that is the case, you can usually buy a USB adapter (average prices are $10-20 USD) to stick the SD card into, and then plug it in via US and transfer pictures to/from that way. If the cheapo SD card doesn't work though, then you may have a problem with the card reader on the laptop itself, and should probably seek assistance from an authorized service provider, or contact Dell directly, if you computer is still under warranty.

My toshiba laptop doesnt read SDHC card

sdhc cards are not backwards compatible with sd card slots. sd cards however are backwards compatible with sdhc card slots. newer card slots and readers are sdhc and sd ready but i'm afraid your only option is to buy a usb sdhc card reader. normally the 52 in 1 readers and ones like that work well and really don't cost a lot on ebay. the only other thing you could try is to put the sdhc card in an sdhc device (such as a camera) and link it up to the laptop that way.

Accessing info on an SD card from a computer

Is it only specific cards that you can't read on it? I am assuming you're trying from the internal card reader. If it will read 2 Gigabyte or less cards, and will NOT read cards with more storage space, it's because SDHC, the format that allows more than 2G on a SD card, is a different format, and most older card readers will not work with SDHC.

You can purchase a SDHC reader that works in the USB port from your local electronics store or Office supply store.

SD Card Reader won't work?

have you tried other sd cards before or is this the first time?

if you have and its just this time it hasent make sure its working in your camera or mp3 player or where ever it came from :-)
if it works have a look in your device manager to make sure there are no problems with the drivers.

1 start
2 control pannel
3 system
4 then the hardware tab and click the device manager.

if there are anyproblems there is useually a little symbol next to the device just double click on it and have a look for the error code.

if all else fails try reinstaling the driver for your card reader or find an updated drivr download.

hope this helps
