Can mount SD Ultra II in Vista but not in XP

Hi, I've just bought a 4GB SanDisk Ultra II for use with my Canon 640. Both images and video are fine when viewed under windows Vista. When I try to read the memory using Windows XP - I receive the message "Please insert a disk in the drive". This happens both with my desktop computer and also with my laptop. Please, have you any idea what's going on?

Re: Can mount SD Ultra II in Vista but not in XP

It sounds like thet are using different formats you can change the format of the information you can find this using a search engine or it might be that yiu will need to install the software for it as the vista version has all the latest software versions did you get any software with it and is the software for your canon 640 installed on this also try reinstalling all software then try again and see if that solved your problem as this does sound like a software problem maybe a corupt file or even could be a virus but i would try reinstalling the software first as this is often the case hope this is some help post back if still have problem...........................

No, it's a hardware issue. Your 8GB card is an SDHC card (the HC stands for High Capacity), but the card reader in your machine is clearly only compatible with the older type SD cards. SDHC devices will accept SD cards, but devices designed solely for SD cards cannot read or format SDHC cards.

There is no firmware update for this, your only fix is to buy an external reader compatible with SDHC cards for connection via a USB socket. Most new readers are fully SDHC compliant, but check the specs for shelling out your hard-earned...

The CF card has nothing to do with the information that is sent to it. It is just a recordable medium that stores what the camera sends to it. There is some other problem with the settings of the camera that caused the photos to be underexposed. Do you use RAW mode for capture of the images? If you do then the Canon RAW conversion software can batch process the photos to correct the exposure.

Camera reads, computer doesn't

That is odd. Try the recovery software that comes with the sandisk cards and see if you are able to get them after that.
Do you format your cards each time in the camera before shooting?

Did you go to "Start">>>"My Computer">>>"Flash Drive" ?
Also, some cameras create more than one folder and the names of the folders don't give you much indication of which one(folder) your pictures are in,so you have to search them all.
