Question about E-Machines T3985 PC Desktop

1 Answer

8-in-1 digital media reader will read one SD card (256M)but not another one (8G). The only way I got the small one to read was by going to Device Manager, right clicking on the SD reader under Disk Drives, going to the Volume tab and Populate. My T6414 is several years old, but I have never even tried to use the reader before, so I did not know that it doesn't work. I uninstalled all of the readers and restarted the machine, which reinstalled them fine. Also, I did format the small SD card before putting pictures on it. I don't want to format the large one now because I have already put a ton of pictures on it. Also, I took the large one to work and my IT guy was able to pull the contents up easily, so why can't my reader do it?

    So----I just bought a nice Canon camera, which of course I want to use with my computer. Could I replace the reader with another one that will read is SDHC compliant or is there an update driver that could fix the problem?

  • deborahmcate May 04, 2010

    I have to go to work now, but I'll check back with you later today. That makes sense. I forgot to add one more point. The readers have never shown up under My Computer--shouldn't they? I just got to them under Device Manager. Also, I upgraded this computer when Windows 7 came out--I'm running the 64 bit version. I also maxed out the memory. I hope you can help me to get the reader up to date so that it will read the 8 GB cards for my new camera. Thanks.

    Yes, but I was hoping that I could just update some software--that's not your fault. I'll buy a new reader tomorrow. Thank you.

If your computer's internal card reader works with 2GB (or lower) SD cards but fails to read a 4GB (or higher) SDHC card, then the computer's internal reader is not SDHC compliant.This same logic also applies to digital cameras, if the digital camera reads 2GB (or lower) SD cards but fails to read a 4GB (or higher) SDHC card, then the digital camera is not SDHC compliant.

    You will have to update the camera's firmware to make SDHC compliant. It is a difficult procedure and cannot be done without appropriate tools.


    The best option will be to buy a new card reader for your computer with is SDHC compliant. Card readers are very cheap and you can get good ones under $5.


    Hope I helped with the repair of your problem. An Accept from you is how I get paid. And a positive feed back tells me how I did with the repair.

    New card readers will be compatible with Windows 7. Make that sure if you buying one!

Digital media manager with t6426


Which operating system ?

What happens when you tried to plug-in SD card to the computer?


Have you made any recent changes to the computer prior to the issue?


To make the SDHC be recognized by the computer, we need to ensure that the card reader works in Windows 7 first. Please check if the card reader is recognized properly by the computer and you have installed the driver for it.


Meanwhile, you can plug some other storage cards to the card reader and see how it works.


I would suggest you to refer the link below
A Secure Digital (SD) card may not be recognized on a Windows 7 based computer.

Uninstall all the Generic USB drivers and reinstall.


1. Open Device Manager.

2. In "Disk Drives" dropdown, uninstall the "Generic SD/MMC USB device" drive.

3. Restart computer.

4. Insert SDHC card.




Hope this helps.

I cant open my sd/mmc card reader and writer.


Some SD and MMC have a security feature in them. If so you will need the disk that came along with it. After you install it then that's the time you can fully utilize your SD/MMC. SD means Secure Data / MMC means Multi Media Card.
If your card reader is not appearing in the My Computer then check if it is detected in the Windows device manager. Go to START > CONTROL PANEL > DEVICE MANAGER. Usually it is under the category of Disk Adapters or Human Interface Device. If it's not present then unplug and plug the device back in. Or try a different USB port to see if that will work. If it doesn't then most likely the reader is defective. But if it is detected and still not able to read the SD/MMC and the SD is being read by a different computer then the issue could be that the SD is not compatible with the reader.

How shall i put in a kingston 1gb micro sd in a All in 1 card reader


You should have 2 components with your micro SD card. The card, a small adaptor and a large adaptor. All you need to do is see what size adaptor your read needs. You place the card in the tiny slot in the adaptor and slide it in the reader. The computer will find the micro SD and install the driver to read it. Then it will give you an option to open the files. That is how 99% of them work.

I put a 8g card in and it wont read it.


The card is to big to be read by the player. The highest amount that the memory card reader on the mp3 player can read is 2gb. So you will need something smaller for the player to read it up to a 2gb memory stick. Anything more cant be read as it is too much for the player.

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

Compatibility for a 2 inch disk


Hello KrisA99,

It sounds like what you are describing is an SD (Secure Digital) card. SD cards are a media storage device used by many consumer electronics devices (MP3 players, GPS receivers, digital cameras and cell phones most notably).

In order to read an SD card on a computer you need a card reader device. SD card readers typically plug into the USB port on the computer. You then insert the SD card itself into the reader, allowing you to view the files on the card.

You can purchase s SD card reader at most major electronics stores such as Best Buy™ or on BestBuy.com.

Best Regards,
Ken
