Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I bought a Sandisk Extreme lll SDHC card , that came with a reader ( ImageMate 8 in 1 SDDR-88) I cannot get this reader to work properly..I am using Windows XP. I apparently, do not need to update or download any drivers, for this product. It is a plug n play USB device. All that happens, is that the green light continually blinks, when l insert the SD memory card into it. The computer recognized the device, but that is as far as l get. No files are detected. What am l doing wrong? Please help.

It rather sounds like you're inserting the card after inserting the reader into the PC... am I wrong?

As long as the device is detected in the Device Manager (system properties), it should be fine.

Insert the card first, then insert the USB reader. From there, check that you get a drive-letter. If you do, great.. if it's brand new, it may require formatting the disk before you can open it and start putting things on it or using it in a camera.

When you say "no files are detected", i'm assuming you don't simply mean "there are no files already on the SD card"... because that's normal if it's new. =-]

Let us know!

Sd card reader sdhc slot sandisk


Older Card readers do not read SDHC memory cards. If the card reader is built in then you probably cannot do anything about it, but you can buy a new USB Card reader to read the card.

How can I get the card reader to recognize sdhc cards


It's not your card reader, the SDHC mini firmware is dead that's why your reader cannot detect it. Warranty, return it to SanDisk for a new one. Every hardware you plug or attach to a PC or Laptop has what is called a firmware, a mini program that communicates with your PC and Laptop that's how they syst

SanDisk ImageMate 12in1 cannot read SCHC 4GB or higher cards


Correct!!!! This card reader cannot address cards that are higher then 3gig and cannot read sdhc cards. Most older readers will not be able to read the HC type card, and by older I mean if its 6 months old or more. To read these cards you need to purchase a new card reader. I know, My camera uses 4gig cards and I was unable to access the pics until I bought a new reader..

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.

I just bought a Dane-Elec 8 GB SDHC memory stick. Put it in a Belkin card reader [a few years old but the stick fit in] but kept saying not responding My program is XP I tried to put in my Epson Photo...


SDHC cards are secure digital cards, and may not be supported by some hardware. Please check your manual for the card reader and printer. If the card reader is a few years old it may not support it. The printer on the other hand could be a limit on card size. I have seen a lot of equipment that only supports up-to 2GB cards.
