    I bought the same one from walmart and I am having the same problem. However I am also running Vista ultimate as well. Wonder if Vista is the problem?

    Same as others, bought a Targus univ 32 in 1 reader/writer, followed the driver instructions in the user's manual, and found out the Targus web site only has drivers for Windows 98. Big problem, I'm using Windows XP.

    There is also a note in that web site is under revision--lame excuse. I e-mailed Targus this morning and if I don't hear back by later today I'm returning it to Wal-Mart for a full refund.

    My problem is that it wont read my SD Cards at all! AND IM USING A 32-BIT VERSION OF WINDOWS! I can't find drivers anywhere!

    TGR-CRD25 is useless for SD cards. Auto responder support that echoes the limited manual. May work with win 98 but no driver support beyond that.

    Good Luck, Keep your receipt

    Tried the suggestion of putting a card in first, then plugging it into an XP machine. Still no good.

    Having the same problem here...Windows not recognizing the USB device. Went to Targus' website and found little help.

    This will be the last Targus product I purchase. I work in the tech industry and plan to warn all my friends and co-workers about Targus and their shoddy products. I advise you all to do the same.

I too am having problems with the Targus 32 in 1 memory card reader/writer TGR-CRD25 & am on Windows XP. If I don't have the SD card in the slot & am looking at the My Computer screen when I attach the cable it chimes & shows up under Devices with Removal Storage. When I insert the SD card it chimes & goes away. Tried putting SD card in first before connecting cable & first 4 or 5 tries nothing then all of a sudden it appeared. I made a copy of the User Data that I wanted to save & disconnected & after trying 8 to 10 times to get it back, just to see if I could, it won't read the SD card again. I am looking for receipt now to return it since it has a 1 year warranty & I purchased this last October.

I would try to see if Targus has 64 bit support first,
If not installing microsoft NET FRAME (free download from Microsoft) it can help with 32bit to 64bit compatabuility issues.
Then find a new reader if this does not work.

I have the problematic Windows VISTA on a 64-Bit Machine. The Memory Card Reader had been working fine. It was inserted during one of the Windows VISTA hang-ups, which necessitated a re-boot, for a lack of a better descripition. Since that time, the system recognzies then the USB 2.0 Memory Card Reader is inserted, but it does not recognize when a Compact Flash Card is inserted in the Reader. VISTA instructs me to insert a memory card, when I open the drive in My Computer even when a card is inserted.

Guys...I was pretty upset when I could not find the driver for my Targus Universal 32 in 1 card reader/writer. That's what brought me to this site. However after reading under the "Technical Specifications on the insert (instructions etc..), I noticed that Windows 2000/XP/Vista computers do not need drivers. Says just plug in and use (which I was going to do in the first place).

You have to put your card in it first and use one of the USB ports on you CPU (not your monitor..if you have that). IT WORKS GREAT!!!

Downloading picuters directly from your digital camera SD or XD card.

You can purchase a Targus card reader from Walmart which will plug into a USB connector on your computer. Directions on it's usage are included with the card reader. The package says it is compatible with SDHC SD/MMC, XD, Memory Stick, Pro Duo, and Magic Gate.I ran into a problem with the Targus TGR-CRD25 when trying to read an XD or SD memory card 1GB or bigger. Targus fixed it with a note on their web site: To operate plug card reader into
the USB port, go into "My Computer", click "Removeable disk drive", insert your memory card into the card slot and upload your data. Please remove your memory card before disconnecting the card reader.

Targus card reader

First - have you ever used this memory card in this camera with this card reader connected to this computer - or is one or more "new to to the mix"? If so, which are new?

The obvious stuff is what I like to check out first.. check that the reader is connected to the computer's USB port (switch to a different port if it is and see if your computer displays a message indicating it is installing drivers / reading the memory card). Make sure the card is in the correct slot. Many readers can accept several different memory cards in two or more different slots - make sure you have inserted yours in the correct slot - and oriented properly. The card should slip in easily - not forcing should be required. Some readers maybe connected via USB "hub" that requires power - if yours is set up this way, make sure the power pack is plugged it.

Still nothing? Make sure there are images on the memory card. You should be able to reinsert the card into your camera and play them back on it. If they do play, remove the card and attempt to play them on the camera again - if they play this time, that tells me the images are in the camera's internal memory - not the removable memory card. You will need to transfer them from the camera - not the memory card if this is the case.

If you're still having trouble, please provide the camera & card reader name & model and if you're using Windows or something else. Finally, what is the name model and memory capacity of the memory card? Good luck!

Cannot transfer video and pictures to computer

Here are some ways to transfer data from camera to computer:-
Run the software that came with your camera. Pop the CD into your computer and go through the setup steps. The only way you'll be able to transfer is if you have the software installed. If you bought the camera used or, for one reason or another, just don't seem to have the CD, you can probably find a used or maybe even a new one on eBay. You might be able to find it somewhere else as well.
Connect the camera to the computer. Let's face it, the pictures aren't going to the computer if there is no cord to connect them. Most of the time, you'll hear a sound or something will pop-up if the camera is connected properly and working.
Sync the camera to the computer and transfer the pictures. With most camera software, as soon as you connect the camera to the computer and it recognizes it, something will pop up asking if you would like to sync the pictures to the computer. After that it's pretty self-explanatory. If nothing pops up or it never was supposed to pop up in the first place, open the camera program. Most likely you'll be able to find your way from there. If not, read your camera manual. It should tell you even more than this how-to.
Another option is to buy a Memory Card Reader. They will go by the name " 6 in One, 12 in one, USB Reader Writer or Flash Memory Card Reader Writer. They allow all memory sticks and cards to be recognized by your computer. On Windows XP, you just plug it in and find it as another drive on My Computer.

Hope this helps, if so do rate the solution

How to download pictures from my digital camera to my computer with Targus universal memory card reader/writer TGR-CRD25?

Connect the card reader to your computer. Take the memory card out of the camera and put it into the card reader. The card should now appear to your computer as another removable hard disk. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

I want to download my photo's from camera to hp laptop

After you take pictures with your digital camera, you'll want to copy the pictures from your camera to your computer so you can print them, share them with others, and back them up for safe keeping. Once your pictures are on your computer, you can erase them from your camera, freeing up memory so you can take more pictures. You can also view your pictures on a larger screen and decide which ones are worth keeping. Some digital cameras come with software that helps you copy pictures from your camera to your computer. You can use this software, but you don't have to. Windows XP can copy pictures to your computer without requiring additional software. Here's how to copy your pictures using Windows XP: 1. First connect your digital camera to your computer. You can do this in two different ways: ?Use a USB cable. Most digital cameras come with a cable that connects the camera to a USB (Universal Serial Bus) port on your computer. ?Use a memory card and memory card reader. A memory card reader is a piece of hardware that plugs right into your computer. You remove the memory card from your camera and insert it into your memory card reader, similar to the way you might transfer a file between two computers using a floppy disk. Tip: It's usually faster to use a memory card reader to copy your pictures than to connect your camera to your computer with a cable. 2. Once you've connected your camera to your computer or inserted your memory card into your memory card reader, Windows XP will detect the connection and ask you what you want to do with your pictures. If you connected your camera with a USB cable, click Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard, and then click OK. If you are using a memory card reader, click Copy pictures to a folder on my computer using Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard, and then click OK. 3. When the Scanner and Camera Wizard appears, click Next. 4. All of the pictures on your camera (or in your camera's memory card) are now displayed on the Choose Pictures to Copy page. By default, Windows XP selects all of the pictures for downloading. If there are pictures you do not want to download, just clear the check box next to those pictures. At this stage, you can also rotate pictures that you took while holding your camera vertically. To rotate a picture, click it, and then click either the Rotate clockwise or Rotate counterclockwise button on the lower-left side of the page. When you have reviewed the pictures for downloading and rotated your vertical pictures, click Next. 5. On the Picture Name and Destination page, type a name for the group of pictures. (This name, plus a number to differentiate each picture, will be applied to each of the pictures you download; for example, if you name the group "Vacation," the pictures will be named "Vacation001," "Vacation002," and so on.) Click Browse, and select a folder in which to save your pictures. Tip: Create a new folder for each group of pictures you download. 6. If you want to erase the images from your camera's memory card to make space for new ones, select the Delete pictures from my device after copying them check box, and then click Next. The Scanner and Camera Wizard copies the pictures from your camera to the folder you specified and then removes the pictures from your camera's memory card. 7. On the Other Options page, you can choose to publish your pictures to a Web site or order prints. If you have finished working with your pictures, click Nothing, and then click Next. 8. On the final page of the wizard, click Finish. Windows XP opens a Windows Explorer window showing the pictures you downloaded from your camera. Your camera's memory card is now clean and ready to store new pictures. If you connected your camera to your computer using a USB cable, disconnect your camera. If you used a memory card reader, return the memory card to the camera. Your photos are now stored on your computer, ready for whatever you want to do with them, and your camera is ready to take more pictures. As with any important files, it's a good idea to make backup copies of your photos, in case anything happens to your computer

When you're ready to download video, you can remove the memory card from your camera and insert it into your memory card reader, similar to the way you might transfer a file between two computers using a floppy disk. Picture of a computer with a memory card Tip: It's usually faster to use a memory card reader to copy your pictures or video than to connect your camera to your computer with a cable. If you don't own a memory card reader, you might want to consider purchasing one. They are inexpensive and will save you time. 2.Once you've connected your camera to your computer or inserted your memory card into your memory card reader, Windows XP will detect the connection to your memory card and ask what to do with your videos. Click Open folder to view files, and then click OK. Click Open folder to view files, and then click OK 3.Windows Explorer opens, showing your memory card. Your videos are contained within one of the subfolders of the memory card. Double-click each folder to locate your videos. 4.Once located. copy them to your computer and then select all and delete.

If you are not able to find your connecting cable. and i am assuming your need is to transfer the data to comp. Well what you can do is you can take out the memory card and fix it into the card reader (you will get a card reader vey cheap anywhere.). and connect it to your comp. Now your card will work as a flash drive and you can transfer data easily then... Hope this helps you out.. :)
