When card is in camera it will show pictures but when card is placed in computer pictures won't transfer


Almost every modern computer should be able to show the pictures. But do you place the card in a correct card reader?
The card reader must be capable of reading the SD card you put in there. Sometimes the card reader has axtea software on a CD, that should be installed first. Special when the computer and or the operating system is a little old. My card readers all can read MMC and SD cards in the same slot.
You also have to look if you placed the card correct in the reader and not the wrong way around.
It should not be possible to put the card in, when it is turned the upside down, but I have seen strong people succeed with that. They also destroyed the memory card, but that is another story.

We have downloaded the software for our MAC X so that we can load the recorded material into the program to convert to wave files. We are using a Swann USB 2.0 card reader. We can't get the computer to...


I found some useful formating instructions at http://osx.tribe.net. Note: FAT 16 only supports 2 GB or less. I had no problems reading FAT 16 formatted SD cards in Leopard. I revised the instructions a bit:
To format the SD card, you will need the path to the SD card device and the SD card device number.
1. Insert the SD Card into a card reader.
2. If you don't know how to find the device number of the SD Card, here is one way to do it:
2b. Open Disk Utility
2c. Highlight the SD Card device (upper icon), not the SD Card volume (lower icon)
2d. Click Erase at the top of the window
2e. Select Volume Format: MS-DOS (FAT) Click Erase... > Click Erase
The SD Card Volume Name will change to the UNIX device number e.g. "disk5s1". Note this number as it will change by itself to "Untitled". It is now formatted in MS-DOS FAT 32. We need to reformat it in FAT 16.

Once you have the device number of the SD Card, you need the path to the SD card device.
3. For my Mac, the path to devices is "/dev". In a terminal window: type "cd /dev" and hit the "Return" key to go to the "dev" directory. Then type "ls" (with a lower case L) and "Return" key. You should see the SD Card device number listed.

Formatting the SD Card in FAT 16:
4. In Disk Utility, highlight the SD Card device and click Unmount at the top, not Eject. The desktop icon of the SD card will disappear.
5. Go to the Terminal window. Be careful to type the following command with the correct letter case and spacing. Again, make sure you type the correct device number and path as you can very easily erase your hard drive in UNIX.
Type the command:
newfs_msdos -F 16 (path to SD Card device)/(SD Card device number)
e.g. newfs_msdos -F 16 /dev/disk5s1
and hit the "Return" key.
6. If you get just a new prompt (or a prompt with some warnings, e.g. below), the command executed successfully. You can remove the SD Card; it is now formatted in FAT 16. You can verify this in Disk Utility after mounting the SD Card.
If you get some instructions on the newfs_msdos command with a new prompt, the command did not execute. Make sure you enter the command with the correct case and spacing. Hint: to re-enter a previous command you typed, hit the up arrow repeatedly. For more information, type: "man newfs_msdos". Scroll with arrow keys. Type "q" to quit and return to prompt.

Won t recognize sd card


It seems that the card reader if the computer is not detecting the card. Make sure that the memory card you use is supported.
The multi-in-one card reader on the Aspire One can read and write to Secure Digital card (SD), Secure Digital High Capacity card (SDHC), MultiMediaCard (MMC), Memory Stick (MS), Memory Stick PRO (MS PRO), and xD-Picture Card (xD). Specific models of the Aspire One are also equipped with an SD Expansion slot that can read and write to Secure Digital (SD) and Secure Digital High Capacity card (SDHC) cards.
The multi-in-one card reader on the Aspire One can read and write to miniSD, microSD, Memory Stick Duo,and Memory Stick PRO Duo cards but require the use an adapter. Acer does not provide or support any memory card adapters.
You can try removing the card reader using the device manager and the reinstall it and check the operation. You may also try using the card is different computer and check. Also try using another card in the computer with the issue and check. If the issue is not resolved please revert back with the model number.

My computer won't show my sd card on the screen


hello,

the reason your laptop wont show your sd card on the screen is because it is not reading the sd card.

it is not reading the disc either because
1. there may be a problem with the card reader,
2. there may be a problem with the slot on the laptop,
3. there may be a problem with the memory card.

to check if it is the card reader, try to use the same memory card reader with another sd card on another laptop and see if it will read it.

to check if it is the slot on the laptop, try to use a new sd card and a new card reader on the laptop to see if it works, if it does not, then you know where the fault is from.

finally, to test the sd card, try to use it on another laptop to see what happens. if it does not work then you can tell where the fault is from.

whichever the fault is, you can change them.

but if it is the card slot, you will have to open up the laptop and clean the slot carefully.

take care.

Where do i put the memory card from my phone in my lap top


Your laptop must have a card slot, for it to be able to read the card.

First most phones use a micro sd card, so you need the card holder,
a card holder id a regular size sd card that you put the micro card into
and then you put this into a sd card reader if the laptop has one.

Most laptops,computers, can not read a micro sd card, only sd card,
and some mmc memory sticks.

You did not post who made your laptop, or the model number so we have no clue if your laptop has a card reader.

Kingston 4gb sd card won't read


I had a problem with lenovo's reader like this, because i put in the nokia 6600 card, correct format and all, but apparently too old and not yet ment to be read by a computer ...

sd could still be hc ... the system of names is still not set up right. if you got a small black attachment for the card that makes it longer, put it on and try inserting the card again.

check if all the drivers are like they should be.

if you've got a friend with a card reader, make sure the card is ok. and if you've got a friend with a card, make sure the reader is like it's supposed to be

post a feedback, ok

Sd Card reader not recognising SDHC cards


When You Insert your SD card into the internal card reader, then the SD card is not recognised by the system and the SD card drive doesn't show there. The problem can be because of driver issue, system issue and device issue.
To fix the problem you need to go at device manager if there is a yelllow sign in SD card controller, the problem is most probably caused by a driver issue. Then you need to update the driver. You can also download the driver for your card reader.
Also, check if your SD Card is broken. You can also check it into different devices port.
If it is detected then you can backup of your data.

If the problem not resolved by any means and you require you SD Card data then I will suggest you read - https://www.stellarinfo.co.in/services/removable-media-recovery.php

Computer is not reading my Micro SD, but phone is reading..


What size is the SD card in GBs? If it is larger than 2GB (4 or 8) do you have a SDHC card reader?
Also try formating the card first in the phone and then using it. Using it straight out of the package, while able to be written, my have difficultly with other devices reading the data.

SD Card Reader Not Working on Acer Aspire 5600 Laptop


Your card reader on your computer isn't capable of reading SDHC cards. You have to use a card reader approved for SDHC use.
