Yes, some of the older readers will not recognize SDHC larger than 2G. you can buy a USB SD card reader off Ebay from Hongkong for a buck with shipping.

Why wont my computer read my SD card? i have a Samsung TL210 double view hd camera. when i put my 8gig SD card in my computer nothing happens at all i have a vista computer ok. i am 13 years old so make...


If the 8Gb SD card works on your HD camera, then the problem is with your built in memory card of your computer. Most of the built in memory cards of the computer only supports up to 2Gb.
You can actually isolate it by trying to test an SD card lower than 8Gb to your computer.
Solution for this is to use external USB SD reader that supports high capacity SD card (SDHC) or contact the manufacturer of your computer and ask for firmware updates for the memory card reader. Hope this is clear and would help you.

My San Disk micro SDHC Memory Cards 8GB wont format and when put in a device it heats up. What is wrong with it?


technically, some card readers dont have any regulators to minimize the voltage to read a microSD.. some direct card reader can destroy/ damage your memory card.. try to use an all-in-one card reader, or a microSD adaptor then put it in your card reader slot..
Card reader slot in laptops made for memory cards only.. =))

Where can I insert my mini sandisk memorycard into my toshiba laptop? I see no slots for it.


If you have no SD slot on your laptop, you will have to buy an external USB SD reader. They typically cost $5-$10, and are readily available online (e.g. http://www.buy.com/prod/micro-sd-sdhc-card-usb-reader-for-1gb-2gb-4gb-8gb/q/sellerid/23962916/loc/101/213271933.html) or in almost any store with a good selection of electronics.

No, it's a hardware issue. Your 8GB card is an SDHC card (the HC stands for High Capacity), but the card reader in your machine is clearly only compatible with the older type SD cards. SDHC devices will accept SD cards, but devices designed solely for SD cards cannot read or format SDHC cards.

There is no firmware update for this, your only fix is to buy an external reader compatible with SDHC cards for connection via a USB socket. Most new readers are fully SDHC compliant, but check the specs for shelling out your hard-earned...

When i insert my 8 GB micro SD card it says the same thing.


Your 8GB card is considered "high capacity". You will need an SDHC USB card reader to read it.

I have a 4gb sandisk micro sdhc with adapter and the computer freezes when i have it in the sd drive.I have a hp pavilion a1 a1203w. Is there anything i can do?? Please Help


I had a similar problem not long ago. The SD and SDHC standards are different. SD only goes up to 2GB, and SDHC (high capacity) goes higher than 2GB. THe problem is that SD card readers aren't capable of reading SDHC cards, even though the card will physically fit into the card reader slot. When you insert an SDHC card into an SD card reader, the reader attempts to read the format, and locks up the OS while trying. You'll need to get an SDHC card reader and use it separately like through a USB port or something.

Micro sd card not working


I'm having the same problem with a Transcend 4GB microSDHC card / microSD adapter. I have also found it probably has something to do with the card reader...either the card reader is an SD card reader trying to read an SDHC card OR the card reader is not able to read high-gigabyte SD cards (over 1 GB in some cases).
