Card slot won't read p2 card

Hello,
I have an alienware laptop with a card slot that up until two days ago, I was able to put my Panasonic p2 cards into, and transfer the mxf files onto another hard drive. I was given a mandatory software update from DVFilm on their Raylight mxf to avi conversion software. As part of the update, I had to install the 32-bit driver for all windows os, the panasonic p2 viewer v3.1.2, and the directx 9.0.

Since the update of that software, my pc will no longer recognize the p2 cards. I've tried installing and removing the p2 drivers, new one and old ones, and that hasn't worked. The raylight company has not been any help.

My question: All I need is for my pc to recognize the p2 cards so that I can transfer the mxf files onto another hard drive. Any suggestions?

THANKS for any info!

Joe B.

    I have a Dell M6400 with Vista 64-bit on it. I tried to install P2 driver for PCMCIA card reader and this allways times out! So after trying to install driver, my PCMCIA port does nothing anymore!!! The only thing I then can do, is restore to the point before installing P2 drivers...

Hi,
have you thought about restoring your system, to an earlier point.
before the problems occured, with your software update.
also if this fails, or you are unable to acheive this.
check in the device manager, to see if you have any yellow exclamation marks, next to your device.
you may need to re-install the device/driver for your card-reader.

Where do I insert my microSD memory card or does my computer have a slot for it?


Here are the ways for you to insert your microSD to your computer

1. Use "memory card reader" (this is probably the best way)

2. Use the internal memory card reader of your pc ( if your computer has it)

My San Disk micro SDHC Memory Cards 8GB wont format and when put in a device it heats up. What is wrong with it?


technically, some card readers dont have any regulators to minimize the voltage to read a microSD.. some direct card reader can destroy/ damage your memory card.. try to use an all-in-one card reader, or a microSD adaptor then put it in your card reader slot..
Card reader slot in laptops made for memory cards only.. =))

How to insert sandisk in laptop?


face up. gently push till it clicks. it should only fit in the slot one way. (make sure the slot is the same width as the card. Do not use the Larger slots. Typically you insert (gold) contacts down, and in first. to remove, push till you feel click, then pull. Be aware that some new micro SD cards have formats that older,( 2 years ago) laptops will not recognize. I think they are marked HD. or HC. Cards. Most of my devices Wont recognize this new format. Camera included. Cheers

Locked card


Hello

Ok, here is something you can try:

In your case the problem is not with the card but rather with your camera's card reader. This is a rather hard problem to fix yourself but here is what you can do.

Open the card slot of your camera and peer inside with a sharp light or torch. You should see a little metal tab or switch inside the card slot. This is the write protection switch. Contrary to popular belief , the switch on the card does not impact the operation of the card itself but rather tells the camera that the card should be locked by depressing the little pin inside.

If you put a protected card into a camera with no protection switch , the card would operate normally.

However , with time and repeated use , the switch will start to bend slightly until it will no longer depress when a unlocked card is inserted.

With a toothpick or needle , slightly and very gently push this tab up a little bit. (some camera's will require you to pull the tab down), This will allow the switch to operate once again and should solve your problem.

Kind Regards
Andrea

My pny sdhc card wont work, my laptop wont read it and when i put it in my camara it sais card error


You haven't said which camera you have, but your problem is almost certainly a hardware incompatibility. SD cards and SDHC cards look the same and fit the same slots but are technically different.

Your fix is to either stick to a maximum SD capacity of 2GB (some cameras can only cope with 1GB or smaller) or to replace your camera with a later SDHC compliant model and to use an separate (cheap) external SDHC compliant card reader on your laptop.

I CAN`T PUT MUSIC IN IT


Make sure that the microSD card is formatted. You may reformat the memory card using your phone and then try saving some music.

If that will not do any help, try using another microSD card to see if the card is defective.

Have a great day!

PNY Optima SD HC 8GB isnt working on laptop


Youll have to get updates for your laptop card reader or get a new one which may have to be installed. Another method you may want to try would be to put the card back into the device you used it in and then hook the device up to the computer, most likely through the USB slot....good luck
