Sd card 2GB and above is not detected by the card reader on my hp pavilion zd8303ea

Posted by on

  • victorewrigh Aug 24, 2008

    The card reader is built in and I have upgraded drivers for it as before it did not recognise any SD cards. Now it does recognise cards up to 2GB but not cards above this. I can only assume that it must be a driver issue and as the memory of SD crd becomes greater the reader cannot recognise them.



    If anyboby else has had this problem and fixed it I would appreciate to know how.

How about 1GB?
does it detect?

try to plug in another pc, if the pc can detect, means your card reader is something wrong.
You're using a build in card reader or usb cable one?

if you're using the build-in, better ask the computer shop staff to change it.
if you're using a usb cable one, just try another card reader.
if still the same, change a new one.

I just got the sandisk 2gb micro sd memory card and i was putting it in my computer after i put it in my computer nothing happened am i doing something wrong or is there something i got to download...


The most common possible issue may be that you don't have the necessary drivers for the built in card reader (I'm assuming the card reader is internal ). If this is the case, simply go to your manufacturer's (of the computer)drivers and support page, find the model of your computer, and download the appropriate drivers for the card reader, and this should resolve the issue.

Also, try the SD card in another computer or camera and verify that it in fact does work, if it fails, return it to the store for another one (hope you kept the receipt ;))

Hp a720n put a sd card in and it doesnt read it or if u click my computer it doesnt show up need a driver or something to fix it where can i find it i went to hp website but could find a driver


I had the same problem. Turns out that the SD Card reader will only recognize cards with a capacity of 2GB or less. It won't read my 4GB or 16GB cards, but will read my 2GB and 8MB(!) cards.

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.

Sd Card reader not recognising SDHC cards


this is from CNET:

"SD and SDHC compliance
If your computer's internal card reader works with 2GB (or lower) SD cards but fails to read a 4GB (or higher) SDHC card, then the computer's internal reader is not SDHC compliant.

This same logic also applies to digital cameras, if the digital camera reads 2GB (or lower) SD cards but fails to read a 4GB (or higher) SDHC card, then the digital camera is not SDHC compliant.

SD and SDHC specifications
The initial SD card specification defined the interface for cards only up to 2GB capacity. The subsequent SDHC specification was developed to provide increased capacity of 4GB - 32GB cards. Computers and other products purchased before 2008 may not be SDHC compatible. Computers and other products purchased before 2007 are not SDHC compatible.

Verifying the card reader slot
If the card reader slot on your computer does not have the SDHC logo, it is most likely not SDHC compatible and will only read cards up to 2GB capacity.


Other options you can use to read files on your SDHC card
If your computer's card reader is not SDHC compatible, you have 3 options available:

1. You can connect your camera (or other device) that works with SDHC to your computer using a USB cable that came with the camera. You should be able to transfer files to the computer this way.

2. You can contact you computer manufacturer to see if they have a free firmware update for your model that will make it SDHC compatible

3. You can buy inexpensive SanDisk SDHC card readers that will connect to your computer's USB port."

SD card reader


1) There is SD card reader on pavilion dv 1000, so you need adapter in which you insert mini SD card to make it SD
2) If you have that adapter, check adapter. Maybe it's broken.
3) If your card is biger, like 2GB or higher you may try updatenig drivers (I read on one web page: " There was a software update for support of reading and using higher memory SD cards, for my pavilion ZV5000, on the HP Software update website." )

SD Card Reader won't work?


have you tried other sd cards before or is this the first time?

if you have and its just this time it hasent make sure its working in your camera or mp3 player or where ever it came from :-)
if it works have a look in your device manager to make sure there are no problems with the drivers.

1 start
2 control pannel
3 system
4 then the hardware tab and click the device manager.

if there are anyproblems there is useually a little symbol next to the device just double click on it and have a look for the error code.

if all else fails try reinstaling the driver for your card reader or find an updated drivr download.

hope this helps
