Bought myself a 14 in 1 card reader to read my new 16gb SDHC card, however, when I try to format or transfer anything onto my new SDHC card, it gives me the error that it is write protected, even though it hasn't got its lock on and I can't see a read/write button on the USB2.0 Multi Reader/Writer pen - any ideas??

Are you using software that came with the reader? Maybe that is the problem. Are the correct drivers installed? Check the device manager and make sure it does not show a problem device. Are you using my computer and clicking on the removable device? Does the card work ok in other computers or devices? Is your computer only USB 1.0 and the card reader requres USB 2.0? Are the USB 2.0 drivers properly installed on your computer? Try removing the software and drivers, re-boot, and just install the drivers and not the software.

What program do I need to download my photos from my Sandisk Ultra 16gb SDHC Card


Is your card reader compatible with SDHC cards? While the card will fit into an SD-compatible card reader, it will not work unless the card reader was designed to be SDHC-compatible as well.

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

I've bought a SDHC card 32 GB but Handy Recorder H4 do not recognize the card. I've tried to format it at the pc, but no way, the message is "no card"


Verify the device and card reader support SDHC. Try a 2g card and see if that works, typically anything 4g or larger is SDHC, older devices can not read such cards. It is quite possible that the card is bad.

Toshiba type "A" sd card


I beleive the memory that it can read is only limited by the software you are running such as windows XP sp1 and 2 can recognize upto 2gb SD cards but keep in mind that SD cards only go to 2gb anything bigger than that are SDHC and are the same size but designed differently so the reader must be able to read SDHC format. Note if your hardware is capable of reading SDHC cards and your software limits your ability to use anything bigger than 2gb you can still insert and use upto 2gb of space on an SDHC card that is, say 16gb so that is how you can tell if it is hardware or software that limits the use of an SDHC card.

2 problems: 1: The 16GB memory card reads "invalid card" and 2: how do I install the 2GB XD picture card. It doesn't fit in the memory card slot. So confused


Let's dismiss the second one first: the xD-Picture Card format is now obselete; your camera was announced just as Olympus was quietly removing it from their cameras, and its specification makes no mention of an xD-Picture Card slot. It's possible that for marketing reasons they included one, but as it's not in the specification I have to assume that it's not there.

For the first problem, there are two answers depending on whether it is the Camera or the Computer which says "invalid card".

This answer applies if the camera says "Invalid Card". Assuming that your 16Gb memory card is a SDHC card, it should indeed be compatible with your camera; your next step should be to try formatting it in the camera to see if it accepts it. It is preferable to format the card in the camera rather than a computer, to ensure that the right filesystem is used. The format command will be in Menu/Settings but probably near the bottom; they don't want people formatting cards by accident.

This answer applies if the computer says "Invalid Card". The most likely solution if your camera can read the card but the computer can't, is that your card reader is not compatible with SDHC cards, but only SD cards. Look for the "SDHC" logo/legend on the reader, and if you don't find it, purchase one that does have it. SD and SDHC cards are physically the same, but SDHC provides High Capacity by extended addressing.

I have a 4gb sandisk micro sdhc with adapter and the computer freezes when i have it in the sd drive.I have a hp pavilion a1 a1203w. Is there anything i can do?? Please Help


I had a similar problem not long ago. The SD and SDHC standards are different. SD only goes up to 2GB, and SDHC (high capacity) goes higher than 2GB. THe problem is that SD card readers aren't capable of reading SDHC cards, even though the card will physically fit into the card reader slot. When you insert an SDHC card into an SD card reader, the reader attempts to read the format, and locks up the OS while trying. You'll need to get an SDHC card reader and use it separately like through a USB port or something.

Message: Memory Card Error - Memory Card Parameter Error on 4gb SDHC card


I have been rummaging around trying to find two solutions: 1) to get my Toshiba Satellite card reader to read SDHC cards and 2) to get my desktop USB ports to read SDHC cards. While MS offers a hotfix for XP, it does not always work because of the different Chip Sets in computers. I have also read where posters say that the SDHC card works in the compter NOW, but NOW will not work in the camera... and the SDHC card NOW works in the camera but will NOT work in the computer.... I found a tekkie article that may help clear the air... SDHC cards are formatted in Fat32x (NOTICE the "x") and SD cards are formatted in Fat32 (no 'x') and these compatibility problems arise when the user unwittingly or unknowingly RE-formats the SDHC card, either when it is put in the computer and won't read or when it is put in the camera and won't read... but just don't bother to mention that THAT is what they did upon inserting the card and only proceeded to complain about an apparent incompatibility. The camera or computer might even mislead you asking if you want to format the card..... but all is not lost. The Panasonic site gives a program AND a pdf instruction book on How To ReFormat an SD or SDHC card specifying the proper Fat32x or Fat32 format. Hope this helps.
