SanDisk 4 GB SDHC card won't work in any of my devices

Have just returned my first such card, and replaced it with a second.  Neither works in my new Blackberry 8830 (the phone simply ignores it, and says in the media card section that "A media card is not installed".  When I put the first card in the phone, it at least recognized its presence, but said there was some error with it, and subsequently ignored it.)  I have put it in the adapter, and put it into the SD slot on my HP Pavillion dv6000 laptop, and it likewise completely ignores the microSD card (but works fine with my other SanDisk regular SD cards).  I cannot understand what the problem is!!  Any suggestions?

    Hi, Just tried to download my pictures from my Sandisk card on to my PC but the computer doesn't recognise it, I've also tried to put them on to my printer as it has a slot for a SD card but the printer screen just says Memory Card Error.

    Any ideas?

    Likewise. The 8830 is compatible with the 4GB SDHC card (according to RIM). I have formatted the card (through PC - as my 8830 does not recognize its existence - although I did have to d/l a patch from microsoft before my PC would recognize it) to no avail.

I was having the same problem. It seems that older card readers (2008 and earlier) won't recognize SD cards larger than 2GB. You should first check with your PC mfg., or the card reader mfg. web site to see if there are any firmware or driver updates. If so, update the firmware and drivers and try it again. In my case it worked! Your Blackberry may need a firmware or driver update as well.

Good luck!

Same problem here with my HP Pavillion dv6200....and the solution

Navigate to the "computer management" (right click your computer icon & select "manage")

Look under disk management under the storage management feature. Scroll down and check to see if the computer is picking up the card. With my situation, it does and all I have to do is double click it.

I don't know why this happens though....

4 GB SDHC Card will not format but 2 GB will.


I'm guessing that you're trying to format this card in a camera that is likely three years or older. Unfortunately the camera was probably designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, but there's no way the card will work in older cameras. It's meant for newer cameras, with high megapixel, and likewise high filesize demands.

Hi i got a 32 gb sansa fuze memory card.. like 2 weeks ago. from buy.com and well today i got my sansa fuze white player. the memory card will not fit into the player. I would like to get a memory card...


From your description, you seem to have bought a regular SDHC (secure digital high-capacity) card. A Sansa Fuze can only accept micro SD or micro SDHC cards. For buying a new card, I would suggest this card from newegg.com. As for other things you mentioned: No, the card you bought is not meant for cameras only, the only reason your device uses micro SD/SDHC cards is because it is a smaller device. The 4 on your card signifies that it is class 4 which is the card's speed classification.

I bought a 4 gig SanDisk Adapter micro SD, micro SDHC. my Acer Aspire will not recognize the card, i've tried the switch both ways multiple times. how can i get my PC to recognize the card?


My reader will not read mine either. I use a usb key card reader. It used to read the regular old SD cards but the new HC card format wont work. This is due to UDF differences. You can try to reformat the card but then your camera or device may not recognize it anymore. good luck

I have a SanDisk SDHC Card class 4 4 gb and it won't work in my Canon Power shot SD630, I get a memory error that says card is locked, however card is not locked, what camera canI use this card in?


The SD630 works with MMC and SD cards, 2GB or smaller. It does not work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.

Your SDHC card can be used in any camera that accepts SDHC cards.

It sounds as if you have an SD card reader, not an SDHC card reader. While SDHC cards will fit into SD slots, they are electronically incompatible and will not work. SD devices are limited to cards 2GB and smaller. SDHC cards begin at 4GB and go up to 32GB.

How big memory card can be used


The specs say any size sd card, but it does not say sdhc card, so
I would think that it can only see a 2g max card. Sdhc cards are over 2g.

I think you have a SDHC sd card have a look at the card and see if it says 2gb SDHC if it does then you need a new SD card if it doesnt have SDHC then it will be a fault with your card reader.

Micro sd card not working


I'm having the same problem with a Transcend 4GB microSDHC card / microSD adapter. I have also found it probably has something to do with the card reader...either the card reader is an SD card reader trying to read an SDHC card OR the card reader is not able to read high-gigabyte SD cards (over 1 GB in some cases).
