    4gb... does the HC matters?

  • Anonymous Apr 12, 2008

    I have a toshiba satellite a215-s7472. The built in card reader will recognize that I have put a memory stick in and brings up a new drive in the computer. but it says that I have not put a disk in the drive. Is there a fix for this? The card reads fine on my desktop..

Yes, these HC cards require a different reader, than traditional SD cards. The builtin one on the laptop probably doesn't support them, since any SD card above 2gb is technically considered an HC SD card. so my advice is to go to a cheap computer parts supplier, and see if they have a reader that will work for HC SD Cards.

DAMN THE MAKERS OF FLASH MEMORY FOR BEING SO COMPLEX!!!!

My Hp SD card reader doesn't work how can I make it work again?


Did you insert the memory card properly? because if your memory card is not inserted properly, the SD card reader may seem not to work. And if probably the problem is from the SD card reader slot, then you have to give it to an engineer for repair or better still take your laptop to Hp customer service center for repair. Thanks

I insert a sd/mmc card in the slotwhich is same as


Sounds like the drivers might be missing which is why there is no response.

Depending on which operating system your running on the laptop will determine what file you download.

Go to this page:

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=VOS_N_1500&os=WLH&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Choose your operating system, either XP or Vista and then under where it says chipset choose Ricoh Driver and download now. choose download by internet browser. Save it to the desktop if possible and then run the file so it installs.

If you go thru installing the drivrr and the card is still not being read by the laptop then the motherboard is bad.

How to insert SD memory card into card rader in laptop computer


I would like to inform you that Acer's laptop doesn't support all kinds SD memory cards available in local market. Its not compatible with all physical dimensions of various memory card companies. So in that case you need to use EXTERNAL Memory card reader which is attachable to USB ports.

If this solution was helpful to you then please rate 100% (or FIXYA) for this solution, otherwise don't rate at all. It was my pleasure helping you.

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.

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.

SD card slot problem


This is most generally a driver issue. Go to HP's support site and download the proper driver. It's more than likely a utilities driver.

Acer aspire 7004 flash card slot


Your computer doesn't support compact flash cards. Your SD slot is a 5-in-1 card reader, supporting Secure Digital (SD), MultiMediaCard (MMC), Memory Stick® (MS), Memory Stick PRO? (MS PRO), xD-Picture Card? (xD). The big slot is for PCMCIA devices.
