I suspect that your SD card is not formatted with the proper drive letter. See below for adding a drive letter to your SD card.

When you reformat an SD Card, Windows overwrites the drive letter and the operating system cannot recognize the drive without a drive letter. You can add a drive letter to it if you open "Help and Support" and go to the Disk Management and it will describe it. You can also type in the search box "Disk management" and it will take you to the window that allows you to manage your disk, and you can add a drive letter, or format.

ION Pics 2 SD- Will not accept any memory cards. It says "New Memory Card Detected, Please restart." Bye. Then it shuts down. Anyone else have this issue or know how to solve it?

IF you can put that SD card in a computer then you can use the computer to format the card and then try it again. There are two format types so try them both.

My card reader is gone after I remove my sd cards I have used difrent cards and it makes no diference

When you remove your sd cards in the new windows 7 update, the card reader removes itself from the list of connected devices on the computer. I have a windows 7 ;laptop with an sd card reader in it and it does the same thing. if it is still reading the cards with no problem, there is nothing to be worried about. it is like hooking up a flash drive to your computer, then it dissapears after you disconnect it. Still use the safely remove function on the windows pc. It helps keep the cards healthy so to speak.

Micro sd card is not visible or computer is no t recognizing it...what should i do....

You might try updating or reinstalling the sd card reader. Right click the computer icon on the desk top.
Choose properties from drop down menu.
Then choose device manager from the side menu.
I have Vista I think Windows 7 look pretty much the same. In XP the properties window will have tabs at top. Find the sd card reader in the list of hardware click the + sign and it should pop up the type of hardware you have right under it. If you can't find it this means the driver is not installed, there will be a red circle with line through it if the driver is not installed.
If it is there, after you click the plus sign and see the hardware, right click the hardware ( sd card reader ) and choose update driver. Choose the option to auto install from internet.
To uninstall and reinstall right click the sd card reader and you'll see an uninstall in the drop down menu. Choose the uninstall and then reboot the PC and it should auto find the sd card reader for you.

Please rate, and write testimonial if you feel the need to, if this was helpful.
Good Luck

Cannot detect SD flash memory

check in "my computer" and see if it registers as a removable drive there. If not, then check in the device manager while the card is inserted and look for any yellow icons. There is a chance that the card reader need a driver installed or updated.
Hope this helps.

Sync problems with windows vista

I got a Vista computer in April and have problems also. You need a special program to install the maps. email Garmin and they will send you the link. An SD card reader/writer is MUCH faster than the sync.

I didn't have syncing problems until after I tried to install Documents to Go. I had to remove Doc to Go v6 because it was making my computer unstable. Doc to GO V10 works with Vista but requires Palm OS6. Garmin says that Palm OS6 can't be installed on the Garmin iQue because they added proprietary software to OS4. I believe my sync problems will disappear after I reload the Palm Software.
