My new mini sd card wont work.

Hi. i have bought a kingston mini sd card and was using it fine. then after a few days it didnt want to work on the computer. it still works on my phone but when i plug it into the computer, nothing shows up. when i put my old mini sd card into the computer it works fine. i can plug my phone into the computer and go to the phone browser and then into the memory card but it is slow and i would rather plug the memory card into the computer and have the window pop up(auto-play). if anyone knows whats wrong, please help. thanks.

Re: My new mini sd card wont work.

A virus maybe present in your card, try to format the card IN your camera not in your pc. [:0)

Drivers for detecting 4gb kingston SDHC

SD vs SDHC is a question I get alot. First let me explain your issue. Unless your CARD READER is rated for SDHC chances are its an older model and cant handle the card, even with driver updates. You will need to check the manufacturers website of the device you are using as a reader to see if there are newer drivers. If its a laptop go to the manufacturers page and and be sure and choose Windows XP as your OS. Ok, now to the difference. SD cards are called solid state memory. The internal workings of each hasnt changed much except that the SD card used standard file formatting that was understandable in Windows XP and earlier operating systems. the SDHC (HC stands for High Capacity) uses the same architecture in teh card but changes the way data is stored and read that enables it to hold more data on same size device. (note architecture means design of card type not inside guts) Thus your system and Operating system may not be capable of addressing the new coding and file system changes on teh SDHC cards. Many older cameras (2008 and before) dont recognize SDHC cards either. Good news is they make an SD card (plain) in a 4 gig and you may be able to replace yours at the retailer with teh correct one needed (unless you bought via ebay or other method) Yours is a good question and is often asked, so dont feel bad in anyway. Just look at it this way.. you learned the lesson recently when the pricing between the two is about the same.. I learned the lesson 2 years ago when an SDHC cost about 80$ compared to 19 $ for a normal SD... SMILE!

Problem with Kingston SD

If the card is intended for your digital camera then try to format it in the camera itself. DO NOT format it in the computer if it's meant for the camera. If it isn't intended to be used in a camera then you could possible attempt a format in the computer. These cards usually arrive ready formatted which makes me think there is a possile fault with the card itself. But try the format routine and see how you go. I know it's new but it is possible a small amount of grease or dirt could have accumulated on the gold connections. Rub these with a small piece of printing paper to clean them up (printer paper is very abrasive and makes a great electrical contact cleaner)

If you have no luck then a trip to where you bought it and see if you can get a replacement.

My computer won't recognize my phones memory card!

Well I found that these older card readers will not read the 4g sdhc format. In your case you found a 4 gig card that can be read (your sisters) Bring your's back to the store and get an exchange for the brand your sister has, let them know this. The knowledge for them is good. They most alway accomadate just to keep the customer happy.

It doesnt work when i insert the card with my micro memory card and asks for a disk

Hi likkle_miss_,

The Micro adapter has no memory in it. It is just an adapter to use so you can plug your Micro SD memory card into a larger (SD) slot. The SD Micro memory card needs to be inserted into the adapter.
