How can I get the card reader to recognize sdhc cards


It's not your card reader, the SDHC mini firmware is dead that's why your reader cannot detect it. Warranty, return it to SanDisk for a new one. Every hardware you plug or attach to a PC or Laptop has what is called a firmware, a mini program that communicates with your PC and Laptop that's how they syst

Sigma 4in1 card reader not working


Try a different / all other USB ports on the computer, and if possible, a different computer if no USB port on your computer works with it. If it still doesn't see the drive, the drive is probably not working. If it does see the device, but is asking for drivers, provide a disk with drivers that came with the reader - or check the Sigma web site for drivers that work with you OS (Windows, Mac, etc.), download and install / extract.

If it sees the device, but doesn't see the memory card, the reader may not recognize the newer, larger capacity memory cards. SD cards are smaller than 4GB in capacity, and SDHC cards are 4GB and larger. Make sure that if you're trying to read an SDHC card that the reader SPECIFICALLY says it works with SDHC cards. Most SD readers can NOT be upgraded with firmware to be able to read SDHC cards - a new SDHC reader is required.

Good luck!

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...

Is there a software upgrade so i can use a 4gb sdhc card


Upgrading from SD to SDHC is not a matter of firmware; it requires different hardware. No amount of firmware updates can allow an SD device to use SDHC cards.

Is an SDHC card compatible with RNS-E


What's the exact RNS model you have, the RNS-510 ? Older equipment only supports SD cards, not SDHC (= SD High Capacity). And what's the exact SDHC card size & type ?

You might wanna try to format your SDHC card using FAT and/or FAT32 and try again. Also make sure the card is in read-only mode (workaround for some older firmware bugs).

And while testing, just use a couple of MP3/WMA files (so don't put tons of files on it) and remove all other files from the device to make sure it's not interfering.

If possible, try an older SD (non SDHC) card and/or contact your Audi dealer for a firmware-upgrade. Since you're having troubles with built-in functionality, this (possible) upgrade should be free of charge.

There are some rumors that some of the newer firmwares will only play DRM-enabled files, so you might wanna try that too (or ask your Audi dealer).

SAMSUNG V800 SDHC CARD FIRMWARE UPGRADE


No. The differences between SD and SDHC goes beyond what firmware can change. It's possible to design a device to use both SD and SDHC cards, but a device that was only designed for SD cards cannot use SDHC cards without hardware changes.

Using a sdhc card in a Panasonic DMC-FZ10


There is no "new" firmware upgrade for this model. Meaning it is NOT compatible with the SDHC card. Largest you can get is an SD 2GB card.
