I am trying to download pictures from my galaxy s fascinate phone and my computer is asking for a disc to be inserted to set it up. A disc did not come with the phone.

Most cell phones today have a few ways of getting pictures, music, videos to your PC/Laptop.

1. Via USB cable - This method usually requires drivers from a CD that came with your phone or can be downloaded from the manufacture's website in order for your PC to recognize your phone when you connect.

2. Via mini SD card - Most phones now have a mini SD slot where you can add more memory to the phone for pictures, music, videos, etc. Usually found attached on the side when you take the battery cover off. It will be a small black chip about the size of a finger nail and to remove it, you simply press it in, then it should release. If you have a memory card reader/slot on your PC/laptop, the mini SD card usually needs a separate adapter to make it fit into a standard SD slot.

3. Via Bluetooth - This requires your PC/Laptop to be able to connect with bluetooth devices. You must pair the PC with your phone first so they can communicate with each other. While using your phone, pick the file (picture, music, video, etc) from your phone, select Options, and send via bluetooth.

When i put my sd card in the computer to download pics, my computer is not recognize it, what can i do to fix it


If the phone refuses to read the memory card, it is due to the fact that, the format of the memory card is not supported by the laptop.

In order for you to read the files of the memory card on the laptop, try to use a memory card external slot that uses the usb cable to connect to the laptop.

You can fix the memory card into phone,and connect the phone the computer through the usb cable.

Read the files through the phone and you will be able todownload your pictures.

Take care

Compaq 6910p Notebook does not recognize a SD-MMC memory card when inserted into the slot. The memory card is fine, as I can access it using a USB card reader, but it is not recogized in the Notebook's...

If the memory card is recognized and readable in a USB card reader, the memory card is fine. If the 6910 does not recognize the memory card, either the card is not properly seated in the 6910 card reader slot, the card slot is not connected to the main board of the 6910 or you need a DIFFERENT device driver for the 6910.

Upgrade of Ram on Dell 8100


There are 2 possibilities here - either the slot is not working or the RAM itself.

First install the working 128MB RAM in both memory slots one after the other and ensure that both the slots are in good shape.

Next, install the other 128MB RAM in one slot and check if this is working good.

Your laptop can support a maximum memory of 512MB. If you looking for an upgrade, please call Dell Support. Even though it's little expensive and shipping takes a week, you can get a free after sales service and peace of mind. Moreover you get proper guidance from the experts.

Memory card not recognized

Try to put your sd card to the slot, and check device manager.
check if there is yellow question mark on the device manager.
if it is, it's driver problem, just update the driver.
if not, try with another sd card and if this still not working, it's your sd card slot has problem.

New memory not recognised when installed into spare slot

"Put it in and reboot"... be sure the aptop is OFF when you add memory! Otherwise, you can damage BOTH memory and laptop! Once memory is installed there is no "trick" to get it recognized. If it is good and meets the BIOS specs, it will be recognized and registered after a cold boot.

1. Be sure the memory is inserted properly (both clips on the sides are flush with the half-moon tabs between memory and metal clips).

2. Sometimes on a memory slot that has been empty a long time (and gets a bit corroded) it is a good idea to insert the memory, remove it again and reinsert 5 or 6 times (only) to clean the contacts.

3. If number 1 and 2 have been done, and you still have this error, then there is a problem with the memory:

It may be the wrong speed (PC100 instead of PC133, etc)

It may be too LARGE for the BIOS to use (all laptops have maximum memory per slot specs that must be observed, because the laptop cannot see memory that is greater than its specified capacity.

In any case, check the manual or the website for your laptop, to get the specifications for memory type AND capacity per slot, and TOTAL memory if you have two slots -or memory soldered on board).
