Hi,
Attache card reader / writer to your PC at USB port at back and Windows will detect and register it. Now insert Memory card in Card reader, Windows will also detect and show as Removable Disk on My Computer.
Now go to desired files (designs) folder and select files by holding Ctrl key on key board and clicking with mouse, after selecting files, right click at mouse, pop up comes, select Copy and now click Removable Disk to get access in memory card and paste designs files there.
That's the procedure. Need further info, please post back question.

    No difference at all. Windows XP or Vista are same for card reader.

    Alrighty, i'm shooting again.



    1) Check that your card reader gives you a new drive when you have it plugged in with the compact flash card inserted. In "my computer" you will probably have a "C" drive and a "D" drive already. (one for hard disk, one for optical drive) Hopefully you will have a new "E" drive (or another letter) which is labelled "removeable disk". If you don't have that, we need to start looking into drivers and your USB setup. If it *is* present, you should be able to double-click the drive and open it.

    It will be blank, because it's new.



    2) Copying files to this new compact flash that you just opened is a matter of dragging your designs to the open window. If there is any problem with this step, we need to look at formatting or unlocking the compact flash card.



    3) From here, it goes beyond your question, but you'd be inserting the card into your embroidery machine and loading the design. Problems in this area may be down to a design format that the machine requires. It really depends where you are getting/downloading your designs from in the first place.

Plug the card to your computer. Make sure the card is being detected by your computer.

Double-click My Computer > Look for removable Device. (usually Drive E: or Drive F: and so on.)
Copy the file (the design file) that you want to save on the flash card and then paste it there.

That should do it.

Computer won't read compact flash card


Sounds like a sure driver Issue Marilee, Simply check your device Manager to see if there are any flags in any of the hardware, If the Card reader drivers have not been installed or is corrupted then the card will not work. Please let me know What operating system you are running eg. Windows XP Vista, Windows 7 or 8 and I will give you step by step instructions on how to resolve this issue.

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.

HOU DO i GUET MUSIC IN MY SAMSUNG GT-S5830? FROM MY COMPUTER


Do you have a cable for connecting your phone to your computer, If yes, then simply connect them and copy-paste just the way you would from a computer to a flash drive, making sure that you are pasting them in the right folder for music. If no and you have a memory card and memory card reader, remove the memory card from the phone and then insert it into the card reader slots. Then connect your card reader to the computer if it is the one not attached to the computer. Then copy/paste your music from the computer to the card just the way you would to a flash disk. keep in mind the folder to which you are copying the music

How do I transfer design pictures from my PC to my flash card. The flash card will hold embroidery designs for use in my embroidery sewing machine


The flash drive/card will appear in the display from "My Computer"
The way to copy files from PC to flash drive is the usual "select" (with a Left-click), then
drag-and-drop paradigm of Windows.

You can create directories/subdirectories on the flash drive if you need/want them too.

What are the slots on the front panel used for?


Those are card reader slots.

Various types of memory cards can be used.

A memory card, (Or can be stated as Flash Memory Card), takes the place of the old Floppy Disks, for one.

It is digital. There is no disk inside, just hardware electronic components.

Due to the size of trying to explain every type of memory card that is available, and the memory card itself, I would like to give you this link,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memory_card

Here it explains the basic format of a memory card.
You can click on the titles of the memory card/s, (in blue), to get a deeper explanation, of that particular memory card.

The specifications for your eMachines ET1810 Desktop PC, state that you have the following card reader slots for,

1.Compact Flash (Type I and II)
2.CF Microdrive
3.MultiMedia Card (MMC)
4.MMCmobile
5.MMCmicro
6.Reduced-Size MultiMedia Card (RS-MMC)
7.Secure Digital Card (SD)
8.miniSD Card
9.xD-Picture Card
10.Memory Stick
11.Memory Stick PRO
12.Memory Stick PRO Duo
13.Memory Stick Micro (M2)

Look above each slot for an abbreviation.
For example on my computer,

I have one card reader slot that is approximately 1 inch wide.
It looks like a T that is stretched out.
It has SD/MMC/SM/MS/MS-PRO, above it.

This means that the card reader slot will support, (Use),
[In order as printed above],

1.SD Card - Secure Digital Card
2.MultiMedia Card.
3.Smart Media card
4.Memory Stick
5.Memory Stick Pro

I have one more card reader slot. It has CF-Microdrive above it. A wider slot than the above, and looks like a upside down stretched out T.

This means of course that it uses, (Supports), a Compact Flash Microdrive card

I've tried to explain the various card reader slots, on your computer's front panel, without being too technical, or being offensive in nature.

If you want, I can explain as technical as you wish, or simplify my solution more.

This is the Specifications page for your eMachines ET1810,

http://support.gateway.com/emachines/desktop/2009/emachines/et/et1810/ET1810sp2.shtml

Scroll down, and look to the right of the heading - Card Reader.
These are the cards your computer supports, (Uses)

Looking at the main support page for your eMachines, it looks as though you have four card reader slots.
Three grouped together on the left side, and two in the middle.

The two slots to the far right are USB ports, with probably a headphone jack port, and a microphone port to the right of them.

This page gives a little more detail, as to what your card reader slots support,

Old Dell Omniplex pci communication serial port needs driver


Go to the Dell support website http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/
Put in your service tag # (it is usually located on a little barcode sticker on the back of your machine). It does not matter if your machine is out of warranty or not. This is one of the reasons I like DELL. DELL has drivers for their machines that go back 10 years or more. I have never had a problem getting them from the website. When you see the downloads that you need download the ones that say driver. You may have to download the chipset driver also. When you do download the drivers and it asks you for the filename to save it as I find that it helps to add a name to the dell #'s to describe the driver so that it looks something like R264710video. Once you download them and transfer them to your computer they should install themself in the correct location (you just have to double-click on the .exe file and answer the prompts (if any)). Let us know if this helps.

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
