    Mine too was working fine then all of a sudden it can't access SD cards and some USB Flash drives. It does still work with one of my flash drives but not the rest. I didn't do anything to change it. The one that still works comes up under 'All File Systems/Media/data' the ones that don't come up under '/home/user/MMC-SD'.

Try opening a terminal (Ctrl + Alt + T) and type sudo bash.
This should give you access to everything.
If this does not work then I am not too familiar with linux either so I probably cannot help.

I want to install windows 7 on my eee pc 701 and the 32Gb sd card does not show on the boot sequence

SD cards aren't able to boot, they only get activated once the operating system has loaded its driver. You will need to install Windows using a USB drive. To create the drive you will need to use the Microsoft USB tool found here.

I bought a deer cam (trail camera) at Walmart and a PNY card with PNY Multi-Slot USB & Flash Card Reader P-UBSDRDR21K-RF. I can't make them all work for me. PNY card reader has no instructions on the package neither on their website and their support is a joke. When I plug in this multi-slot card reader into my PC (I tried two different PCs) something isn't right. I get no results, just empty folders. The card is new and has data on it. Both products come from PNY, both were purchased at Walmart and both are going back to Walmart for a full refund and I will never buy a PNY product ever again.

How can I backup files from a SD Card before formatting it ?

Put the card into a card reader, either built-in to your computer or attached via USB. The card will now appear to your computer as another hard drive. You can then use the operating system's drag&drop to copy the card contents to a folder on your hard drive. Or you can use any backup program.

How do i take off the write protection off my sd card

not sure about sd card

USB drives can be write-protected by modifying the StoreageDevicePolicies Registry key and WriteProtect Registry value.
click Start>run>regedit to open Registry Editor. and press control+F to open the find dialogue box and type "usb device" or "driverdesc" to open usb mass storage device or type "usb mass storage device" in the search windows. And right click on it and delete. This will set the policy value to 0. then insert your usb device. It will work fine.
# Remember: do not delete any unknow files in the registry as this will make some programes not work as usual.

If you are running a Windows XP OS then you might be able to:

- click start right click on my computer select open
- Right click the icon of your Flash Drive (It should be F:/ or something)
- Click Properties in the menu that comes up
- Click the Sharing tab
- Click permissions
- And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.

hope this helps

Can i expand the HDD memory of my EePc 4g?

If you have the EeePC 4G (which I suspect you have, given specs, then I'm afraid the answer is no. The SSD (which is what is used as a 'hard disk in your netbook) is hard-soldered to the main board. You can, of course, add SD cards or USB Pens to increase your storage space.

In Windows, you can also set your "My Documents" folder to work from a different location, such as the SD card. This may help you too.

Access data on 8Gb SD card


Some older card readers will not read the newer HC-SD cards all memory cards larger that 4gb are HC-SD. You need to get a new card reader that states HC-SD compatible. Office Depot sells them as well as many online sites. Then just plug the new reader into a USB port and go.

I Hope this helps, If so please rate my solution.
