    I have a Toshiba Satellite A105 S4244 laptop. It has an SD card reader that isn't recognizing my 4GB SD2 card. It does not recognize it whether I just put it in or reboot with it in. When it is put in, the button lights up, so I know it is going in all the way, but it doesn't show up in My Computer.

    If anyone could help me figure this out, I would appreciate it very much.

    I forgot to mention that I am running Windows XP Media Center Edition, SP2 installed. I think it is up to date. I have run the Toshiba utility to update Toshiba software and it claims I'm up to date as well.

    Please be more specific in the model number. It should be "A105-XXXX".

    Each model has their own driver.

My PC won't recognize my SD cards


Just to be sure, it's an SD card (2GB or smaller) and not an SDHC card (4GB or larger)? If it's an SDHC card, is your card reader compatible with SDHC cards, or only with SD cards?

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!

My sd card is not recognized in my computer and camera


If neither your computer nor your camera will recognize your card then it is safe to say that there is an issue with the card. You may either have bad contacts or an internal issue, but since your camera states it is locked when you say it is unlocked that would normally signify an internal issue. If you still have a warranty on the card I would suggest you take it back to the place it was purchased from.

Micro sdhc card reader will not recognize 8gig card


You problem is most likely to be the fact that your micro chip is a HC chip. HC chips have a new program that is not backwards compatible to regular sd host ports. This is a simple fix, however. If you don't trust downloading programs for it on the internet, just go to target or walmart and get a USB SD card reader, and a SD adapter if you don't already have one. The usb adapter should only be like $10 at most.

Kingston 4gb sd card won't read


I had a problem with lenovo's reader like this, because i put in the nokia 6600 card, correct format and all, but apparently too old and not yet ment to be read by a computer ...

sd could still be hc ... the system of names is still not set up right. if you got a small black attachment for the card that makes it longer, put it on and try inserting the card again.

check if all the drivers are like they should be.

if you've got a friend with a card reader, make sure the card is ok. and if you've got a friend with a card, make sure the reader is like it's supposed to be

post a feedback, ok

Micro sd card not working


I'm having the same problem with a Transcend 4GB microSDHC card / microSD adapter. I have also found it probably has something to do with the card reader...either the card reader is an SD card reader trying to read an SDHC card OR the card reader is not able to read high-gigabyte SD cards (over 1 GB in some cases).

Pc not recognizing sandisk micro sd


The Card Reader you are using is probably not compatible with SDHC Memory Cards (High Capacity SD). You may need to get an SCHC compatible reader or check the website for your product to see if the is a driver update. You can get a new reader for about $20 bones if needed. I had the same issue.

Sd Card reader not recognising SDHC cards


When You Insert your SD card into the internal card reader, then the SD card is not recognised by the system and the SD card drive doesn't show there. The problem can be because of driver issue, system issue and device issue.
To fix the problem you need to go at device manager if there is a yelllow sign in SD card controller, the problem is most probably caused by a driver issue. Then you need to update the driver. You can also download the driver for your card reader.
Also, check if your SD Card is broken. You can also check it into different devices port.
If it is detected then you can backup of your data.

If the problem not resolved by any means and you require you SD Card data then I will suggest you read - https://www.stellarinfo.co.in/services/removable-media-recovery.php
