Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I replaced a working SanDisk Compact Flash Reader (in use for several years) with an Ecotrends 50-in-1 reader from Office Max. It, didn't work, i.e. was not recognized by Windows XP Pro SP3. I took it back to thr stor and got a replacement. Windows now recognizes its existance but when I insert a card it says it cannot get the images from the card. I am using a powered hub for several devices. I have tried with the powe cord unplugged but this makes no difference. The SanDisk reader still works. Any suggestions?

The images on the card are in a different format which is not recognised by the reader.Try rolling back the driver for the card to see if it reads it.

Hi i was just wondering where i can insert a compact flash card in my pc thanks nihal


You need a flash card reader that has a CF slot. Some desktops and laptops come with these. Alternatively, you can buy one. Some are sold to fit in a 3.5" drive bay in a desktop. Others will connect to a USB port on the computer. This page has a number of different card readers that support Compact Flash cards: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007958%20600021611&IsNodeId=1&name=Yes . The prices start under $10 and go up depending on the features in the unit. I don't have any experience with these; the card reader in my desktop was provided with the unit.

I hope this helps.

Internal card reader does not recognize SanDisk 4GB SDHC card


Try going to Start>Control Panel>Dbl. click System>Under System Properties>Click Hardware>Device manager> check your "Universal Serial Bus Controllers" and make sure there are no yellow exclamation logos. If there are, your going to have to download their perspective drivers to get them to work. But I seriously doubt that is the problem! One way to make sure that it's not your computer, is to take the SanDisk card to another computer that has an internal card reader, like maybe the library or a friend and see if it works on their computer. If it does work, then it's your computer's card reader- bus controller! If it doesn't work, then it's the card that is faulty! Good luck!

WIll not read the compact flash card after update of Internet Explorer. It displays a box saying to insert a disk in the drive and the flash card is inserted.


Please try the following: 1. Check if the LED indicator in your Card Reader is blinking. 2. Unplug the flash card and put in back again. 3. Check if the PC can detect your card. 4. If it can't detect it yet use other flash card and put it in the card reader. Check if it is working. If yes - you might need to buy another flash card. It might be defective. If not - check your card reader. If you have other card reader please try to repeat the process. 5. Update antivirus and run deep system scan. A malware or virus could be present in your system.
Thanks. Let me know if you need further assistance.

Centros Secure Digital Card Reader Model No.4418951 will not read a SanDisk SDHC Card 4GB.


1. Safely remove the Card and Card Reader from your system.

2. Plug in the Card Reader to the system.

3. Now, insert the Card in the reader.

4. Let the system take some time to detect the devices.

* If the Card Reader donot read the card, try another card to check if there is problem with the reader or card!

* If the Card Reader still donot detect, check it with another system.

tell me if it works...tc! :)

A card got stuck in the card reader but now it wont read any cards i put in, there is no hardware faults according to the device manager


If you were able to take the card out, take a close look with a flashlight to see if any pins (inside the card reader) are bent and/or making contact with other pins or the casing. They should be straight especially if it is a Compact flash memory reader (the older bigger media storage )

Got a new computer-old one crashed. Want to install SanDisk on new computer. How?


If you want to use the flash memory card Sandisk then you will need the appropriate port and just plug it in. if you have no memory card reader ports then you will need to go to a computer store to buy one, if you mean you wish to move the memory card reader from the old computer to the new one that will require opening the case and will void any warranty you might have I would take the memory card reader down t the service center and the new computer and let them install it .

Wat is toshiba flash card


"FLASH" generally denotes a compact storage device called
Compact Flash Card. I have an old digital camera that takes compact flash cards.

Newer Toshiba Laptops and Towers have multi card readers installed, my laptop has a SD card reader under my PCMCIA card slot. I also had a (Made for Toshiba) compact flash adapter. That device was nice because it wasn't "Card Bus" it used 8-16 bit technology making it easy to transfer data from a laptop running windows 3.1 to a laptop running Vista
