Question about PNY 4GB Secure Digital High Capacity Memory Card

Unable to access files on the flash drive

Used the flash drive for digital pictures. When we insert the drive into the laptop, we are unable to access the drive. We have other flash drives that work correctly. Guessing I need a driver but unable to locate one. Any ideas on how to get the PNY flash drive working?

    I have a new laptop. When I put the SDHC in the drive, the drive doesn't respond or read the memory card. I also put it in my USB card reader, and it didn't recognize then either. Can you help me?

    Same situation with the 2gb card purchased to use in my NIkon D40. Has worked just fine until yesterday. Right in the middle of taking some pictures it just all of a sudden went blank and read "This memory card cannot be used. Card may be damaged. Insert another card." Tried to read card from several pc's and got nothing. I desperately need help in retrieving those pictures, let alone get this card to work again after 6 months of minimal use!!

SDHC cards are not backward compatible with normal SD cards..therefore older devices will not recognise them...your built in card reader is probably not sdhc...try downloading directly from camera or use a sdhc usb card reader

I have Picture Project on my computer. Just bought lap top for different uses. How can I transfere pictures from the pc to the laptop? Will the usb flashdrive work, and if so how? Thanks, Greg

Yes sir , for sure.
For transferring pictures u can use usb flash drives.

Insert the drive into the pc copy and paste the files/pics.
safely remove it.
Now insert it on your laptop, and u can copy the files.

The flash drive will be represented like a new drive in my computer.
