You need to download the correct drivers for that specific device you have now installed to your system it and before that you need to un-install the old drivers for the old device in order to avoid conflicts. the best site for downloading hardware drivers is at the manufacturers site.

Okay Then I See you Found You solution.

Can not read sd cards. The blue light goes on after introducing the SD card in the slot (the small one on left side), but "My Computer" does not show the folder even after refreshing.


Is you're card a SD HC (High Capacity) Card (usually > 4GB)?

Some older readers dont read the HC cards, if so the solution may be to buy a usb reader that will read SDHC cards.

Its not recognizing my sd card reader


Make sure you can see the Secure Digital host controller and
Texas Instruments PCI GemCore based smartcard controller in the Device Manager. If its missing, re-download the drives from HP.

If you are trying to use a SDHC Memory Card in the reader,
you will need updated Win XP TI drivers as the ones on the HP site
do not support the newer memory cards.

This goes for the nx5000's nx6110's nc6120's and nc6320's.
Updated XP TI drivers are needed

It doesn't read 8gb sd cards on internal sd drive


There are two types of SD cards. The first, standard type, had a capacity limit of 4GB. But quite soon the technology advanced and higher capacity Flash memory has been developed, so the standard had to be revised - and SDHC was born (HC stands for High Capacity), which includes cards having 4GB and above.
There is an overlap, as you can see, because there are 4GB CD cards, and 4GB SDHC cards on the market.

Now your DELL is an older machine, and it's card reader is not compatible with the new SDHC standard. And it will not be, even with a BIOS update.

You have two options: find a 4GB SD card (they are hard to find, majority will be SDHC) and stick with this capacity, or purchase an USB SD/SDHC card reader, which is cheap, and use it to transfer files to/from your 8GB card.

Acer Aspire 4520 doesn't read SDHC cards


No, there is a simple fix. However, it involves flashing the BIOS on the laptop.

Don't worry, there's not much chance of it going wrong as long as you follow their steps of flashing the BIOS (Incidentally, it's stored on most laptop hard drives).

The reader will accept a larger chip if the updated BIOS on the laptop manufacturer's website is written to do it. Contact the manufacturer via email first just to make sure.

My toshiba laptop doesnt read SDHC card


sdhc cards are not backwards compatible with sd card slots. sd cards however are backwards compatible with sdhc card slots. newer card slots and readers are sdhc and sd ready but i'm afraid your only option is to buy a usb sdhc card reader. normally the 52 in 1 readers and ones like that work well and really don't cost a lot on ebay. the only other thing you could try is to put the sdhc card in an sdhc device (such as a camera) and link it up to the laptop that way.

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

Card reader


Because your reader doesn't support SDHC (4Gb or more)

If you buy a USB SDHC compatible reader, it will be fine.

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