I am trying to transfer photos from my computer to my Transcend SD 2GB memory card. When I plug it in to the port on my all in one printer I get an air message saying "There is a problem reading the memory card" I go to my computer and try to open the card under devices with removable storage and it tells me to "insert disc into drive" and the darn thing is in the drive. I have a Lexar memory card and it seems to work just fine. How do I get this thing to work?

You can transfer pictures to your laptop by using a Micro SD card reader like the one in the image:
Insert the Micro SD to the slot which says "Micro SD" and then plug it in the USB port of your laptop. The laptop will soon detect the Micro SD. Open "My Computer" and then choose the removable drive which is usually E: or F: or G:. Thanks.
that all depends on the model of your laptop, most current laptops have a slot for a standard sd card, if this is the case you will need a micro sd adapter.
if you dont have a port for an sd card you have 2 options, first you can buy a usb memory card reader (making sure it takes micro sd cards before you purchase) or, most mobile phones take the micro sd card so you can put it in your phone and either plug it into your laptop using a usb cable and try getting them that way, or if you can view the photos on your phone, bluetooth/email them across.
If the memory card is not detected in any device be it a phone or a computer then it must have failed in the memory and the only solution for you is to retrieve any data from it by consulting with Transcend service support. please call up their support and get help.
If you put the memory stick back into the camera can you see them thru the camera menu? If so your computer's SD card port may be having issues. try using the card in another computer or use the cameras USB cable to transfer the pictures from the camera to the computer if it has one. Do other memory sticks work in the computer ok? If you cannot see them in the camera either then the pictures will be corrupted and probably cannot be recovered. Then the card will need to be formatted to erase any errors on the card. Always use the camera to format a card whenever possible...Hope that helps.
Some computers have a card slot built in the front of there case,if not, you need a usb card reader. They are very cheap. You put the card into the reader,plug the reader into a usb port and windows
will open the card as a folder. It is used just like a hard drive, you can copy and paste or just drag something into the folder that is
your sd card.
