Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have installed a Sandisk ImageMate USB 2.0 SDDR 99 V4 5-in-1 reader on a Win2000 system. The system recognised it and added it to the list of drives but when I attempt to restart and update the system it won't boot past the Intel m/board splash screen. If I remove the reader the system then boots normally. The m/board only has USB 1.

You need to plug the reader after windows starts because some computers think the usb device is a hdd & tries to boot from that device.

SanDisk ImageMate 12in1 cannot read SCHC 4GB or higher cards


Correct!!!! This card reader cannot address cards that are higher then 3gig and cannot read sdhc cards. Most older readers will not be able to read the HC type card, and by older I mean if its 6 months old or more. To read these cards you need to purchase a new card reader. I know, My camera uses 4gig cards and I was unable to access the pics until I bought a new reader..

I use a SanDisk ultraII 2.0GB disk in my Canon PowerShot camera. I want to put the SanDisk into my HP8530f but I am not sure if it fits one of the slots in the media center. Can i insert it into this...


The cards used by the Canon Sureshot are SD cards and very common. The HP 8530 if it has a card reader added as it is not standard according to HP is likely to support SD cards. I would however suggest to spend the extortionate sum of less than a fiver and buy one of the many card readers advertised on Ebay which will fit into your USB port. I have just bought several for less than a fiver including P&Pand they will read upto 92 different types of card. The following is the location on Ebay so just cut and paste it.

One final point. Wherever you buy one from make sure it will read SDHC cards which a lot will not. The above does.
Nope this helps.

My pc is not recognising my connected sandisk cruzer control stick?


Solution for ALL PCs with USB 2.0 ports.

1. Move it to the PRIMARY USB port.
2. Check your BIOS configuration to make sure your USB ports are enabled
3. Assign an IRQ to the USB ports ( this is done by Y/N setting in the BIOS )
4. Download and install service pack 2 ( usb 2.0 is enabled by installing service pack 2 )

I bought a Sandisk Extreme lll SDHC card , that came with a reader ( ImageMate 8 in 1 SDDR-88) I cannot get this reader to work properly..I am using Windows XP. I apparently, do not need to update or...


It rather sounds like you're inserting the card after inserting the reader into the PC... am I wrong?

As long as the device is detected in the Device Manager (system properties), it should be fine.

Insert the card first, then insert the USB reader. From there, check that you get a drive-letter. If you do, great.. if it's brand new, it may require formatting the disk before you can open it and start putting things on it or using it in a camera.

When you say "no files are detected", i'm assuming you don't simply mean "there are no files already on the SD card"... because that's normal if it's new. =-]

Let us know!

Computer doesn't recognise SanDisk sddr-103 as having any capasity.


Don't know this particular one but it is possible the driver software did not install correctly.

Plug it into the US port and restart your system.
This may force Blindows to 'see' it and install a driver or ask you for one.

I have a cruzer mini 256MB. After a long time of working fine it now is recognised as a ADIR ROM device and i cannot get to the data. How can I fix this or get it repaired ?


I just expereienced this same issue and this is what I did to resolve.

Step 1. Back up your registry.
Step 2. Look and see if you now have a key called HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\USB\Vid_0781&Pid_1234 and a key called HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\USB\Vid_0781&Pid_5150.

Step 3. Delete Both (Note the the latter is the one for your Cruiser but you should start fresh.)

Step 4. Reboot (Make sure you don't have the flash drive plugged in.)

Step 5. Once logged back on, install the flash drive. It will still go thru the routine of hardware1.gif discovery but most likely will not work correctly. You should notice that the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\USB\Vid_0781&Pid_1234 is back but the later is still gone.

Step 6. Change the following keys to the values indicated..
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\USB\Vid_0781&Pid_1234\12345678
DeviceDescrip FROM ADirRom TO Sandisk Cruzer
LocationInformation FROM ADirRom TO Sandisk Cruzer

and ADD the Following
Driver {36FC9E60-C465-11CF-8056-444553540000}\0013
Service USBSTOR

Step 7
Remove the drive and reinstall. If you are as lucky as I, you may still get an initial message about can't find a driver for the Adir, but then the hardware detection will start anew and correctly recogize as a Cruiser Mini.

Dell precision not recognising usb 2.0


sounds not,  some of the older systems only have 1.1, Usb 2 is not all that old (about 2-3 years).
you can upgrade to USB2 bu adding a USB2 PCI card to your system, this would give you some ports on the back and it may be possible to link the ports on the front to the new PCI card to upgrade those as well (depending on how they are connected to the mobo)
you can get USB2 cards with a Pin header which would allow for a pin block connection.
