Hi,
You need to ensure that your Computer has the relevant Drivers Installed. i.e Toshiba Laptops have a specific Driver, Solely for MSSlots, 1 as the program, and another program to Format.
Also check that the memory card, appears in the My Computer Window, As Drive E:/ Or F:/ et,c. assuming that C:/ would be your hard-drive. D:/ Or D:/ And E:/ CD/DVD Drives. Then any additional devices such as F:/ G:/ H:/ I:/ et,c will be card-readers et,c.
Finally is that the computer understands the Actual Format of the SD Memory Card. FAT/FAT 32 et,c.

Hope this points you, towards solving your problem.

    Hi,

    it does,nt help to rate a solution, before the expert that assists you to resolving your problem.

    initially you never mentioned your operating system, as being vista.

    if you,d have read my possible solution, you,d have read look in MY COMPUTER. for drives other than hard-drive C:/ Or DVD Drive D:/ Or E:/.

    Should you be fortunate enough to have another expert Offer you FREE Advice, on how to resolve your problem. I,d advise you not to rate their efforts, until your problem has been resolved. by doing so you are degrading the experts statistics.



    Good Luck. Mike @ Compurepair.

How can I get my memory card slot to work?


It be the wrong format, did a disc come with the camera or phone if so run that and try again.

You need to format the disk ....


The drives can be read by another computer, so the problem is most likely with OS/drivers on the HP giving the error. The specific drivers required to read each drive format could be missing/corrupt. Formatting shouldn't be performed on a drive that contains data unless backed up (redundantly). It may be possible to recover any lost data using free recovery software. Often a format preserves data, erases only the file directory.

I would try a system restore on the HP. If that fails to correct it install or upgrade format specific drivers (e.g. SD/SDXC drivers). Contact Magellan about the GPS: you may have formatted the device's system partition. It is unlikely your computer had the correct drivers to format that device, and it is likely formatted in an incompatible format (such as NTFS). Does Magellan provide a utility to read the device's memory? The SD card should be salvageable by formatting on another computer using the appropriate formatting utility. (Go to https://www.sdcard.org and navigate to their formatting utility.)

From that site: "If an SDXC memory card is used through the direct SD slot of a computer without SDXC driver installation, the card may not be recognized correctly and a message to prompt formatting may appear. In this case, do not format the SDXC memory card. It may erase the data on the SDXC memory card and format the card for a different file system, making it incompatible with SDXC devices."

I have a 5 in 1 card reader but nothing is happening when i put my memory stick in???


Check "My Computer" and see if the icons for the memory card slots are listed or shown as an icon each as a drive (should have 5 all together). If they're not, then check the Device Manager to see if they're listed there and the drivers are installed. If not, you'll need to re-install the drivers. Also, make sure you're putting the correct type of card into the slots - in some cases the SD slots cannot accept the SD-HD types even though they're the same size.

Do all compaq presario cq60 have a memory slot?


It has a memory card slot (left-side towards the front), but your particular memory card might be too big for the slot. There are several different variations of memory cards out now. Of course the newer the variation, the smaller that card is. This laptop is fairly new so it might not be compatible with your memory card. Does your camera have a USB cable for transferring pictures? If so, then just use that.

How do I download my camera's memory card onto my acer extensa


The "odd shaped port" you are referring to is most likely:

The Express Card slot (replacing the slot known as “PC-Card” replacing the slot formerly known as “PCMCIA”) are the biggest standard slot on a laptop designed to handle stuff like wireless cellular modems with antenna and micro hard drives. Most people won’t ever use this slot, but it’s a lot faster than it’s old relatives now that it connects directly to PCI-Express. From: www.geek.com

Do NOT put your memory card from your computer into that slot. Since you have indicated that the USB cable connector option will not work, you will have to go out and buy a memory card reader that is compatible with you memory card. They are relatively inexpensive and easy to find at most electronics stores. Plug in the card reader (USB) and seat in your memory card and the OS of your laptop should detect the card and allow you to download the pictures.

Hope this helps!

Place for a memory card from digital camera to


It does not appear that this laptop has a media slot for you to put your memory card into. So you can use the USB cable that came with the camera - but I find that it is always very slow, and uses up the camera's battery pretty quick.

So you may be better off getting a USB media reader. you'd remove the memory card from the camera, put it into the slot in the reader, and plug the reader into a USB port. In My Computer you'd see a new drive pop up, and you could click on the DCIM folder, and then the 100XXXXX (where XXXXX is the name brand of the camera, or some portion of it) folder, and you can then cut and paste your pictures to the computer. If you Cut instead of Copy, it deletes the pictures from the media, so that when you put it back in the camera, it is blank and ready to take more pics.
