My TransFlash 2.0 memory card doesn't show on my lap top

First, the basics...
There are three kinds of SD cards (SD, SDHC and SDXC). Not all computers are designed to accept all three types. SD cards can store up to 2GB of data, SDHC can store up to 64GB of data, and SDXC cards can store up to 2TB (terabytes) of data. If you are unsure which types of cards your laptop or computer will accept, visit the manufacturer's web site and look for the specifications for your particular model to be sure. It's tempting to want to buy an SD card with a large data capacity, but it's wasted money if your computer will not work with the high capacity card.

Make sure you have inserted the card correctly (and fully). The card is 'keyed' (with a notch in one corner) so it should only fit into the SD card slot one way *easily*. Obviously you can try to force the SD card into the slot the wrong way, but the position which goes in the easiest is probably the right way. Some devices have a symbol beside the slot indicating which way the card should be inserted. Be careful, though. It is natural to think the the card should be inserted with the manufacturer's label facing up, but I've seen devices where the card should be inserted 'upside-down', contrary to what I thought.

If you are using a Windows computer with a 'recent' version of the operating system (Windows Vista or later), the computer should recognize the card (as a newly attached piece of hardware) and show the card as a new drive letter when you open the Windows Explorer program to view your files and folders.

If the card is new, it should be formatted already and can be used immediately, BUT...your computer may need to have a driver program (software that enables the use of specific hardware items). My laptop, for example, uses a driver from Ricoh to enable the SD card slots, and that driver had to be downloaded from the HP support site and installed before my SD card slots would recognize SD cards.

If you know you have the correct SD card device driver installed, have an SD card that will work with your computer but still do not see the card in Windows Explorer, you can check in the Windows Device Manager to check its status. You can also use the Disk Management features of Windows to check what drive letter has been assigned to the drive. If the SD card has been assigned a drive letter already used by another drive, then it will not be available in Windows Explorer.

If you think any of these last problems I mentioned are part of your issue, reply here and I can see if I can help you further.

MicroSD Memory Card slot

Just a thought - the microSD memory card is sometimes supplied with an adaptor. The microSD card is slid into the adaptor, which is a dummy standard sized SD card, so it can be used in a usb card reader with a PC or a laptop...

My Sansung laptop does not recognize the memory card for my camera.

A microSD device is a digital storage device used in many Mobile Phones Cameras and MP3 players. It is a smaller version of the standard SD memory card, about one-quarter its , and has a storage capacity that ranges from 128MB to 4GB. In order for you to read files inside the microSD card using your computer, you need either a microSD card reader or a microSD card adapter. Insert the microSD card into the microSD card reader and make sure that the card is properly connected to the device. Plug the microSD card reader into a USB port in your computer and wait for the computer to recognize the device. Use a microSD card adapter to read your microSD card if you do not have a microSD card reader. A microSD adapter basically looks like a standard SD card but is designed to accommodate a microSD card to fit the SD card slot. Simply insert the microSD card into the microSD adapter and then plug the adapter into the SD slot in your computer. Plug the SD card adapter into an SD card reader if the computer you are using does not have an SD slot. Consequently, plug the SD card reader into a USB port in your computer. Use your phone to read your microSD card. Plug one end of the USB cable that comes with your camera or phone to the mini USB port in your device and plug the other end to a USB port in your computer. When you are prompted that the device is recognized, install syncing software (if applicable). Many cameras phones and MP3 players can be connected to the computer without using any software. Navigate to the location of the removable drive.
Open the folder to see if you can browse the files in the microSD card.

Where do I insert my microSD memory card or does my computer have a slot for it?

Here are the ways for you to insert your microSD to your computer

1. Use "memory card reader" (this is probably the best way)
find the slot that says "micro sd" that's where youre going to insert the microSD

2. Use the internal memory card reader of your pc ( if your computer has it)
it is located in front of your desktop. The find the slot that says "micro sd" and insert it.

Even when card is inserted properly it does not show up on the desk top or in 'my computer'

You will need a driver for the hardware to work correctly in order to show up in "my computer" If the card or hardware came with a insallation cd, please insert that disc and install the driver. If it did not come with a driver, then you may need to google it up for a driver, or simply tell us what card you had inserted in. If you are talking about card such as sd card or media card and it did not show up on the computer then 1, your media card is bad, and you will need to test it with another device( such as another computer with the media device slot) to see if it is working. If it is working on another device, we have to assume that your media card slot on your computer is not working. In this case we will assume that the hardware is there, however the media slot driver is not installed, or functionly correctly. You will need to go into device manager via your control panel and scroll and once in your hardware device manager, in your media/ sd device, see if there is any hardware detect, if not, your media device is bad, and it is not working. 2) If it is working, and it is seeing another card if you insert another card, then your card may just need to be formated.

When i insert my sd card in computer it does not show ir & it hangs up. please help me

Remove the card from the drive. From My Computer (presume you have windows XP system), get device manager, get the drive, uninstall and then re-install the driver or re-start to re-install the driver automatically. Hope this works. Else run a anti-virus or anti-malware/spyware software full scan including card drives card inserted.
