You just need to insert a Memory card supported by your laptop in that slot and it will automatically show up on your My Computer as a removable drive.

How to remove protection on memory card on a 3310 mobile

  1. Remove the card from your cell phone by pushing the card into the phone and then releasing it. The card will "pop" up from its slot. Pinch the card between two fingers and pull it out of the phone.
  2. Hold the card so the card label is facing you.
  3. Push the sliding lever on the upper left side of the card up, toward the top of the card. This will unlock the write protection on the card.
  4. Mini and Micro SD Cards
  5. Remove the card from your cell phone by pushing the card into the phone and then releasing it. The card will "pop" up from its slot. Pinch the card between two fingers and pull it out of the phone.
  6. Insert the card into a card reader (this will allow it to be read as a normal-sized SD card). Make sure that if the card reader has a slide lever on the upper right-hand side, it is in the "unlocked" position. That position will be marked directly on the reader.
  7. Insert the reader into your computer.
  8. Open the command prompt on your computer. For Windows users, this is an "Open" that will appear when you click on the "Start" button. For MAC users, open the "Finder" window and click on the drive and then select "Get Info."
  9. View the permissions for the drive. Windows users will need to type "reg edit" after the "Run" prompt. MAC users need only click on the "Ownership and Permissions" choice in the Info window.
  10. Reset the permissions for the phone memory card. Windows users need to make sure that the value in the permissions window is set to "0." MAC users will need to click on the appropriate box to select "Read & Write." Save your changes and exit the Info or Regedit programs. Follow your normal steps for your operating system to eject the card reader and then eject the memory card from the reader and reinstall it in your phone.

I cant seem to access MY SD Memory Card from my New Camera through the SD Card slot on the Front panel of My Aspire M1201 - The Green LED is on but no pop up and i cant find the correct the section to...

Newer cameras may have SDHC cards - these have a high capacity. Older computers can't read the newer SDHC cards - they can only read the old SD Cards. The SD card and SDHC cards look exactly the same. The SDHC card will probably say "SDHC" on it somewhere. Fortunately you can buy a USB SDHC card reader for a computer for around £2 on amazon. I would buy one of those. You could search the internet for "usb sdhc card reader".

Where do i insert a memory card into a gateway md2614 laptop

It depends what type of memory card you are referring to.

USB memory will plug into the USB ports on the left side of the laptop.

If you are using a Memory Sick, Memory Stick Pro, Mini Secure Digital, MultiMediaCard, RS_MultiMediaCard, Secure Digital (SD), or xD-Picture card they will go into the memory card reader on the left side of the laptop about 2 inches from the front of the machine. ** NOTE: this is the bottom slot.

If you are using a Type 54 ExpressCard it will also go in on the lfetside but this slot will be above the Memory card reader slot mentioned above.

Good Luck! :-)

I have a Gateway M-7315u laptop. I don't have a book on it. I know what the SD slot does, but what is the slot below it for? What is MMC/MS/xD?

The other slot below the SD slot is a memory card reader for other types of flash memory cards that are used in various digital devices.

How can i use sd/mmc memory card reader on my laptop? ia am using dell inspiron 1525 model?

The SD/MMC memory slot is already configured to read standard and HDSD cards. Just remove the DELL blank from the slot by pushing it in until it clicks and release it. Then pull it out. Insert the SD/MMC card into the slot and push it in until it clicks. The DELL Blank is shorter than an actual SD/MMC card, so don't try to push the SD/MMC card any further than the 'click'. Remove by pushing in until it clicks, release, remove.

Have a dell Inspiron 1525 notebook with memory card reader, compatible with Memory Stick Pro - but i cannot figure out how to insert the memory stick into the memory card reader - an SD card slots in...

the MS pro may need an adapter if it's the mini kind. then that will plug into that slot. it still won't fit the same way as the SD card, so insert it carefully. there should be an indented area for the MSP card to insert.

Reg mmc card reading

Normally you'd just be able to open My Computer, and plug the card in to the built in slot, and it would pop up as the next available drive letter. If the internal slot is missing or inoperative, you could buy a cheap MMC to USB adapter, plug the card into the adapter, and the adapter into a USB slot.
