Toshiba flash cards not working


Flash Drive or SD Cards? Flash Drive is where you put the mechanism into a USB Port. SD Cards are where you might take the card out of a camera and stick it into the SD Card Reader Slot on the computer.

Which one are you saying is not working? If its the SD Card Reader, go download and reinstall the driver again.
Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "ToshibaSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the Card Reader drivers.If all fails maybe your card reader has gone bad. You can always purchase one for under $10 that plugs into the USB Port. When the site below comes up just type: SD Card Reader in the white search box and hit GO. The link is below:

How do i use the dvd-player? .


On your model it does not have a dvd/cd rom built in. You will need to buy a external dvd/cd drive and hook it up through your usb port. Go into your operating system, then plug in the cable into the usb port. Turn on the Dvd/Cd, and windows should pop up of a hardware detect. If disc if provide with the external dvd/cd drive, use that and install the driver from that cd, you should be good to go.

My both usb ports r not wrking n hangs when eithr card reader or pen drive is inserted bt works well when tata photon usb port or mouse port or key board port is inserted ?model- EMACHINES E275


Sounds like your laptop's USB ports are not capable of providing enough power to operate your card reader or pen drive. I suggest you buy an active USB hub (one with external power source, rather than the one which draws power from the laptop's USB port), & attach your card reader and/or pen drive to that USB hub.

Hi there, so I pulled a Toshiba MK2006GAL out of my Creative Zen, and I got myself a All-in-One USB Card Reader that has a port that fits right for the Toshiba MK2006GAL HD. Now I connect to my ACER...


Although your drive: http://sdd.toshiba.com/main.aspx?Path=StorageSolutions/1.8-inchHardDiskDrives/MK2006GAL

physically fits into one of the slots in that Card Reader, it is not making any "electronic" connections, i.e,. no power is reaching the Toshiba, and no "data" cable is connected from the Toshiba to the Card Reader.

Similarly, although you can fill your automobile's gas-tank with water, there still is a fundamental "incompatibility" to be overcome.

Yes, Windows is recognizing that you connected a USB device into a USB port on your computer, but that's all that has happened, from Windows "point-of-view".

I can't upload pictures from my camera b/c the usb link does not recognize the camera.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive.

There are also plenty of photo catalog software packages out there, some free, some not, that can transfer and catalog your pictures so you can quickly find pictures from Susie's birthday party, for example. Just do a google search for "photo catalog software".

Sigma card reader/writer doesn't recognize my new SD card


Hello,

What I suspect here is that, the USB port that you are using is a USB 1.0 port, which has a lower voltage not enough to power on your Storage drive.

In this case, there are two things you can do,

1. Change the USB port you are using for the storage drive to a USB 2.0 one (Just keep Checking all the ports one by one in case you dont know which one it is).

2. If your Storage drive has external power facility, just plug it in an external power first, before connecting it to the system.

If there are no USB 2.0 Ports on your system at all,

then just go to any electronic store and tell them you want to buy a USB 2.0 Expansion card.

and if it is a laptop, A USB 2.0 PCMCIA card.

Install it on your system, and connect your external drive through it.

Hope this helps you out.

Goodluck
