The PC will see the card as a storage device so should read any capacity Compact Flash, or Secure Digital cards that you put in the readers.

The devices their used in usually have the capacity limitations as to what size cards they will read/write to.

Won t recognize sd card


It seems that the card reader if the computer is not detecting the card. Make sure that the memory card you use is supported.
The multi-in-one card reader on the Aspire One can read and write to Secure Digital card (SD), Secure Digital High Capacity card (SDHC), MultiMediaCard (MMC), Memory Stick (MS), Memory Stick PRO (MS PRO), and xD-Picture Card (xD). Specific models of the Aspire One are also equipped with an SD Expansion slot that can read and write to Secure Digital (SD) and Secure Digital High Capacity card (SDHC) cards.
The multi-in-one card reader on the Aspire One can read and write to miniSD, microSD, Memory Stick Duo,and Memory Stick PRO Duo cards but require the use an adapter. Acer does not provide or support any memory card adapters.
You can try removing the card reader using the device manager and the reinstall it and check the operation. You may also try using the card is different computer and check. Also try using another card in the computer with the issue and check. If the issue is not resolved please revert back with the model number.

My Acer 3692WLMi does not read my Fuji 8 gig SDHC card but it will read my Panasonic 2 gig SD card. Can someone give me an answer/solution. Thanks C


While I'm not directly familiar with this Acer model, it looks to be an older laptop. It's almost certain that it was built prior to the SDHC cards being created - a lot of older memory card readers are not able to read the High Capacity (HC) flash cards. I actually own a couple of devices that also would not read the 8GB card.

To test, I would recommend finding a newer USB SD card reader that you could either borrow or purchase (they're usually not too expensive) to see if that reader could get the information from the SDHC card.

If that works, the problem would be that your flash card reader does not support the higher volume cards. This is the most likely possibility.

If it doesn't work, there may be an actual problem with the SDHC card itself.

Hope this is helpful!

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.

Computer not finding SD card, I put the SD card in like normal but nothing happens. I go into computer and it does not show up there either


SD cards are not created equally! There is so much more to know than just the capacity.
There are many things about SD cards most people are not aware of. After having numerous problems with my cards, I thought I would share what I learned, mostly from online articles, trial and error!
There are SD cards (Secure Digital)
SDHC cards (SD high capacity)
and SDXC cards (SD extra high capacity, high performance)
Speed Class: There may be a C with a number inside the C printed on the card, (or a U with a 1 in it) - if there is no C or U on your card, it is a C2 card.
C2 is for basic data and photo use and has a slower processing speed.
C4 and C6 are acceptable for up to basic video.
C8 and C10 are high performance, fast processing speeds - and cost more.
The U1 symbol indicates fastest processing speed available, and will cost the most. For large size, HD videos.
If you are trying to use a basic SD2 card (no C rating or C2 rated) for a high quality or high speed video or large RAW photo, you may have problems with your device. The card may not be able to keep up speed-wise. These are generally older, or lowest priced cards. More information and photo examples on the speed class here: https://www.sdcard.org/consumers/speed/speed_class/
Your device will read SD cards up to the capacity it is capable of. A device with SDHC capability will be able to read basic SD cards, but might not be able to read an SDXC card, so you may think you have a defective card when you actually just have a device that does not have the capability to read it.
If your computer's SD reader or peripheral card reading device has an SD card reader and it cannot read SDHC (high capacity) or SDXC (extra high performance/capacity) it will reject or not see the card and you might think you have a defective card. Put the card in your camera or other device you are going to use it for, and then using the USB cord that came with the device, plug that into your PC. The PC will be able to read the card that way, edit it, etc.
After copying all files on the SD card to your computer, you may wish to format the card before using it again. When formatting the card, IMPORTANT: Make sure you have copied all the data you want to keep onto your hard drive, and make sure it is formatted FAT32. I kept formatting a card FAT (which was the default for this card), and the recordable capacity of the card kept getting smaller...and smaller...a 2GB card was only allowing 350, 250, 125 MB of data to be stored on it! I kept hitting a brick wall trying to copy files onto it. I kept formatting the card, thinking there was some de-frag issue or corrupted portion, and the capacity of what it would store kept diminishing - until I formatted the card FAT32. ONLY THEN was the card able to store to its true capacity. I was able to do this in Windows in Explorer - right click the drive the SD card is in, select Format, verify the Capacity (card size), verify the File System (use the pulldown menu to select FAT32 if it is not selected), and then click Start and allow the computer to remain undisturbed until the format is complete. I found a web page that covers this: http://pvillecomp.com/
There is an SD website that offers a download for proper formatting of your SD card, with downloadable instructions. I was using Windows to format my SD cards, but the SD website recommends using software that specifically formats SD cards. Here is the site: www.SDcard.org. Click the Downloads section.
Some older devices can only handle smaller SD cards (2 GB or smaller), so if your device cannot read a particular SD card...check your owner's manual. There is usually a limit to the size, capacity, speed, type, etc. of the cards each device can handle.
It is also possible to partition an SD card so it can be read by more devices, or separated for organization purposes. I prefer smaller SD cards when possible to avoid a huge loss if the card becomes damaged, lost, etc., but for those who have cards that are 16+ GB in size they may want to partition them. Here is a website for that:

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.

Have a aspire 5735 laptop need to know how to insert sd compact flash disk


If your laptop does not have a built-in memory card reader then purchase an USB multi memory card reader that can read a variety of memory cards such as SM/XD, SD/MMC and CF/Micro drives memory cards.
All you need to do is plug in the memory card into the card reader and then plug the card reader into the computer's USB port. The computer will see the memory card as an external memory device.

I purchased a 2 GB SD card for my Kodak Easy Share C330 camera. This 2 GB SD card will not work. I was told that this C330 Camera can only take a 1 GB SD card. Is this correct? If it is not correct what do...


Although the manual doesn't specifically say the maximum capacity, looking at their accessories website only sells 1 GB cards for the camera. This tells me that the maximum capacity is, indeed, 1 GB which is not an uncommon occurrence.

8 GB SD card


Hello, unfortunately SD cards are getting larger and larger capacities and your Compaq is only able to read Max 2Gb.
However there are external card readers that will read your 8Gb.
Hope this FixYa's problem?

This is the link for the drivers for your laptop, Cut and paste it into the address bar in your internet browser and it will bring you right to the download page. It will also have the manufacturers contact info so you can get in touch with them directly for free and get the driver for your card reader. If it is not showing up it is not installed(driver). I do not see it in the list of drivers but customer service will be able to send you the link for the driver you need. Once you install the driver you will be able to use your reader.
Also, The reader may not be capable of reading High capacity Cards. Any card over 2Gb is considered High capacity. This is the problem if you are trying to read HC cards in a standard capacity reader. The manufacturer will tell you whether or not it is a High capacity reader or not. If this turns out to be the problem you will just have to use an external USB HC card reader to read cards greater then 2 Gb. Hope you found this info helpful. And save the website in your favorite folder incase you ever need to download and install the other driver for your notebook.
Thanks
George
