I have had this problem with unformatted cards. But the problem is that when you format something, it erases what is already on it. So if theres nothing important on the card already, go ahead and try to format it.

My PC won't recognize my SD cards


Just to be sure, it's an SD card (2GB or smaller) and not an SDHC card (4GB or larger)? If it's an SDHC card, is your card reader compatible with SDHC cards, or only with SD cards?

I INSERTED THE MICROSD MEMORY CARD IN THE COMPUTER BUT I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO NEXT


Most computers do not have a slot for a "Micro" SD card. Instead, those often have to placed inside an adapter that looks like a normal size SD Card. If your SD card looks like the picture below, you should be good to go from the start! Once it is inserted into the computer, click on "My Computer". On older Windows versions, this is a link on your desktop. In newer, click on the Start menu at the bottom left of your screen, then click on the "My Computer" option there. You should see the SD card on that screen below your hard drive.

If, however, your card looks like the smaller SD card on the right in the picture below, please ensure that your computer has a specific slot for this smaller variant of SD card. If it does not, you will need an adapter, shown to the left. In that case, you will plug the small SD card into the adapter, and then into the computer. then go to My computer to see it.

Hi anna21,

Formatting the card may fix the problem however you will loose all the data on the card. I have a solution here that can help you but you need a SD Card Reader on your computer to back up the files.

1. Put the SD Card in your Card Reader.
2. Connect it to your PC.
3. If the window pop-up like asking to open with what program select Open as File.
4. If the window does not pop-up, Go to My Computer/Computer. There should be the SD Card Memory.
5. Backup all the save file in your SD Card in other word copy the whole SD card. Save it in your computer. Make sure you remember where you put it.
6. Reformat the SD Card by Right Click and click Fromat
7. Tick Quick Format
8. After it finish formatting, Try open the SD Card. It should be empty.
9. Put back all the copied file back into SD Memory Card.
10. Plug it on your DS. Check the files. Play and Enjoy

Hp a720n put a sd card in and it doesnt read it or if u click my computer it doesnt show up need a driver or something to fix it where can i find it i went to hp website but could find a driver


I had the same problem. Turns out that the SD Card reader will only recognize cards with a capacity of 2GB or less. It won't read my 4GB or 16GB cards, but will read my 2GB and 8MB(!) cards.

I got a sd card today and am unable to put in my laptop can you help


For you to put an SD card into your laptop, you have to possess a SD card converter. Normally, it comes with the card if you bought it new but if there is none, you have to purchase one.
When you get the converter, you can slot your SD card into it and then put the converter into your laptop.
Hope this solution helped you? Please feel free to comment for more information and thank you for using the fixya website.

I found an sd card and just got a palm treo.I put the sd card into the treo but I don't know how to check if there is any ifnormation already stored on the card.


you can try this..

first you connect your treo with the sd card to your computer..

you will see if the computer reads the sd..

there will be a new drive in your my computer..

right click on the drive then select properties...

a dialog box will appear and it says what size the sd, how may free spaces how many used spaces..

then you will know if there are data in it..

but remember to try scanningthe drive before you open it..so that if there is a virus you can detect it and prevent it to infect your system..

i hope i've help you..

Computer doesnt recognize sound card


One of two things happened - Either the driver for the sound card became corrupted, or the sound card died. First thing to do is go through the control panel, and the add new hardware wizard, see if Windows detects and installs the card. If it detects the sound card, but can't find the driver, open the computer case, make a note of sound card manufacturer and model number, and use the manufacturer's support site to download and reinstall the drivers. (Alternately, if the card is integrated, or was put in the system by Acer, and if you're not concerned about data loss, many Acer desktops have a System Recovery partition, accessible by restarting and holding Alt. + F10 during post/startup - varies for some models)

If driver detection/reinstallation is unsuccessful, power off the system(Unplug the power cord as well), open the case, move the card to a different slot, restart the system, and try driver detection again.

If the card is STILL not showing up in device manager, its likely toast. You can purchase a decent Sound Blaster 5.1-7.1 sound card for under thirty bucks on Ebay, at WalMart, etc.

Cannot detect SD flash memory


check in "my computer" and see if it registers as a removable drive there. If not, then check in the device manager while the card is inserted and look for any yellow icons. There is a chance that the card reader need a driver installed or updated.
Hope this helps.
