Try the 4gb card in a camera or phone. If the card is formatted in fat, it wont be recognized as the fat has a gb limit under 4 I believe. May want to reformat it in a camera or phone with fat32

I have added a 4gb sandisk mini sd card but when trying to download more apps I get a message that the card is not detected. how do I fix this? Thid is for the 7 in wireless mini tablet

Hello, if it's 4gb it won't be'll be SDHC. It's possible your Sylvania doesn't support the SDHC.
Biggest size SD is 2GB.
Do you have any smaller cards you can use?
Let me know how it goes!

Can not read sd cards. The blue light goes on after introducing the SD card in the slot (the small one on left side), but "My Computer" does not show the folder even after refreshing.

Is you're card a SD HC (High Capacity) Card (usually > 4GB)?

Some older readers dont read the HC cards, if so the solution may be to buy a usb reader that will read SDHC cards.

It doesn't read 8gb sd cards on internal sd drive

There are two types of SD cards. The first, standard type, had a capacity limit of 4GB. But quite soon the technology advanced and higher capacity Flash memory has been developed, so the standard had to be revised - and SDHC was born (HC stands for High Capacity), which includes cards having 4GB and above.
There is an overlap, as you can see, because there are 4GB CD cards, and 4GB SDHC cards on the market.

Now your DELL is an older machine, and it's card reader is not compatible with the new SDHC standard. And it will not be, even with a BIOS update.

You have two options: find a 4GB SD card (they are hard to find, majority will be SDHC) and stick with this capacity, or purchase an USB SD/SDHC card reader, which is cheap, and use it to transfer files to/from your 8GB card.

SD card does not seem to fit in the SD card slot

Is the SD card a mini type or a standard SD card?
The standard SD card is 24mm wide X 32mm long.
If it is a mini SD card you need to purchase a mini SD to standard SD adapter, then you will be able to insert it in your Compaq.

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

are u sure that the SD card fits in the slot perfectly and doesnt come out?which SD card is it,is it a MINI SD or MICRO SD? because for these two u must use SD CARD ADAPTER.. only then the card will sfit in perfectly. Also when it is inserted properly and it fits in then u will hear a DING sound in ur laptop whether ur running VISTA,XP or ne other OS and also u can see the Memory card as the "name" of the card or as "REMOVABLE DISK" in "MY COMPUTER".Please confirm me with this step and ill help u out furthur.

Card reader

Because your reader doesn't support SDHC (4Gb or more)

If you buy a USB SDHC compatible reader, it will be fine.
