Your question seems to indicate that you have more than one card reader failing. I have never had one fail at all and I have one built into my two PCs and an external one. If they are external to the PC, have you tried them in another PC? Also have you tried your cards in someone else's card reader? Those are the first two tests I would try. If either of those work then to try to fix your PC I would remove the driver in Device Manager and reinstall it.See if it is listed under My Computer when the card is installed. I would actually need to know what kind of card readers you have, (brand, external or internal, and card type.) to help you more.

Pictures show up on memory card in camera, but computer won't recognize the card - either inserted directly or by USB


ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER
If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

Memory card stuck inside Memory card slot.


Your only bet is a pair of tweezers, The SD slot is not "openable" When these fail the whole reader assembly is disconnected from the motherboard and replaced.

I would say try your local beauty supply store or a pharmacy for a longer thinner pair of tweezers.

Should that not work you have to decide which is the lesser of two evils paying for a tech to replace the component or just leaving the card in there and forego the use of the reader.

Another option is to use a heavy gauge sewing needle to try to push the micro sd card towards the front where yo can grab it with the tweezers.

MAKE SURE the battery is pulled out and the laptop does not have power.

Can't Copy Large Files From camera's memory card! so many people have this problem and no one has the answer. thanks for any help.


Perhaps you're hitting a faulty memory card. Have you tried a different memory card in your camera to perform the same?

If possible, also try that same card in another camera capable device such as another PocketPC device or better yet, a memory card reader and perform the same operation tests on that card.
the copy would fail at the same file, once so much space had been
filled. At that point, It could no longer add additional files. You could
try copying a large directory of files and see if the copy always fails at the same spot or if you can't copy files once the card hits ??MB. i.e., on the faulty part card, as soon as I hit the size mb, It could no longer add more files. also Use a card reader that accesses the card directly as an external drive...

Card reader stopped working


go to the pavillion website and download drivers for the card reader (you can find the correct drivers by searching the model or serial number to your machine). install the drivers for the card reader (they prolly dont take drivers, but try anyway) the card reader is most likely defective, or the ide ribbon cable came loose from the back of it.

Card reader replacement


I suspect that it won't play any source that uses progressive scanning. The likely problem is the hyperboard or scaler board. This component allows the TV to switch from sandard definition TV to HD. Typically, the hyperboard will cause shaking and wiggly images especialy noticeable at the top of the screen. It will generally work better the longer its on. Expect to spend $400-500 to resolve this.

Casio not reading CF card after using it in Desktop PC


Try another CF card/accessory in the slot to determine if the CF socket on the E-125 is not damaged. Also run scandisk on it while plugged into the card reader on yopur PC. There have been issues with 128 mb CF cards manufactured by SanDisk (who are OEM suppiers to several other brand names also ) randomly malfunctioning. Inspect the pins in the CF slot on the PDA to see if any of the pins has been bent/corroded. Hope this helps.
