Solution overview: You need to "clean" theSD card by using the clean command in Diskpart and then format the card in DiskManagement. This solution will show you how to accomplish this.

1. Plug the SD Card into the computer.

2. Press Win+R to open the Run command.
3. Type "cmd" into the dialog box and press enter to open acommand prompt.

4. Type "Diskpart" into the command line of the command promptto start Diskpart. Wait for Diskpart to load.
5. Type "List Disk" and press enter.
6. Take note of the number of the disk that's associated with your SD card.
7. Type "Select Disk X" where X = the number of the diskthat's associated with your SD card and press enter. Make sure the commandprompt reports that Disk X is selected.
8. Type "Clean" or "Clean all" and pressenter. Clean will be faster but might not solve your problem. If using theclean command doesn't solve your problem, then repeat steps 1-8 and type "Cleanall".
9. Wait for Diskpart to complete the cleaning operation - this may take sometime so wait until it's completed!
10. Close command prompt.

11. Press Win+R to open the Run command.
12. Type "DISKMGMT.MSC" into the dialog box and press enter.Wait for Disk Manager to load.

Is a PNY SDHC 4 GB Memory Card compatible with a Canon PowerShot A530 camera? The card currently in the camera is not a HC card.


I think the maximum size card you can use in the power shot is a 1Gb card unless nes firmware has been istalled to allow 2Gb card.
Using large capacity cards also delays the write recovery time. So if you are trying to capture moving objects , often you get one shot and then it takes almost 20 seconds to recover for the next pic. Too late for most things that move

hope this was of some help

Just a quick thought, have you clicked on the start button and then gone to "my computer"? It will show each drive or memory stick and what it has on it. If it finds it, then drag and drop to a folder.

if it doesn t read your card. Its because the computer or labtop can not read HC high capacity cards. it will read a 1 GB or 2 GB but anything above will not be read. check on card if it has HC you need new hardware or a regular sd card.

PNY Optima SD HC 8GB isnt working on laptop


Youll have to get updates for your laptop card reader or get a new one which may have to be installed. Another method you may want to try would be to put the card back into the device you used it in and then hook the device up to the computer, most likely through the USB slot....good luck
