I insert the micro sd with adapter ofcourse, and my vaio keeps asking me to insert disk. Also, the little sd indicator light at the bottom right of my laptop very faintly blinks but only for a split second.

Re: vaio won't register micro sd
Have you installed the driver for the SD card reader ?
built in vaio ? check within the control panel, devices,
sometimes removing the device then rebooting sorts it, press delete on the device within device manager then reboot, check it, should be back and hopefully working

Your camera uses "xD-Picture Card" memory cards.
To insert the memory card, you have to open the battery cover and you see a little room, where the card goes in. There should be a gold marking indicating where the contact area on the card should be when inserted.
Don't try to insert any other kind of card.
I saw a xD-Picture Card adapter, where you could insert a micro SD card, but I'm not sure your camera can work with such a adapter.
A micro SD card is the correct memory card for the 14xx series. A 2 GB should be just fine. Some units can not handle a large memory SD card. This has nothing to do with the physical size however.
Are you sure it isn't a micro SD card that is inserted into a standard SD card adapter? A standard SD card is much larger and will not fit into the 14xx series. Look at the end of the SD card that does not have the gold pins and see if there is a ridge where the micro SD card may be inserted into the larger standard SD adapter. Using a fingernail, you can slide the micro SD card out from the SD card adapter. Also, the micro SD card will only insert one way. Try flipping it over and inserting it again, always with the gold pins facing the Nuvi.
It is possible that you have a "MicroSD card". Most card readers can not read micro sd cards because it is too small, so you will need an "adapter" to be the same size as a normal SD card and then you can use it on card readers. I am just assuming (because I can not see it) that the yellow thing you have is the adapter. Make sure the micro SD card is inserted into the adapter properly and make sure that your adapter is inserted properly into your card reader.
If it is still not working, tell me the brand and model of your computer or you card reader. Also indicate any markings you can read from your sd card and the little yellow thing.

Insert the MicroSD card into an
available media reader slot on your PC. If your media reader can't read
MicroSD cards, but can read ordinary SD cards, first insert the MicroSD
card into an SD adapter, and then insert the adapter into the slot. You
will see an autoplay menu for the disk pop up on the screen.2 Open the folders on the disk and
navigate to the "System" folder. Click on the "Open folders to view
files" option from the autoplay menu, then double-click on the folder
that says "System." This is where your card's password file is stored.3 Open the password file. In the
"System" folder, find the file that has MMCSTORE somewhere in its name.
It may have additional letters, numbers and characters, but it will
always have MMCSTORE in the title. Double-click on this file to open it
in Notepad. The text inside this file is your lost Micro SD password.
for reliability buy a dedicated micro sd reader as not all the adapters work. I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions. I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.
Since you have verified that the card works (in your phone) and that the adapter works (in another computer), then the issue could very well be with the Sony VAIO VGN-C140G/B. More specifically, the USB ports/drivers. Presumably that the Sandisk 2Gb Micro SD & the adapter were working before and that you are using Windows Vista, pls check your updates that has anything to do with USB. Alternately, you may want to rollback/downgrade the USB drivers and/or seek USB driver update from the Sony site rather from Microsoft.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for your continued patronage of FixYa.
