    XD Card Reader often corrupts image on card. When copying image file from XD Card Reader I get an error indicating FILE CANNOT BE COPIED - PARAMETER ERROR. In some cases the image files were corrupted on the card and could only be retrieved via file scavenger software.

SOURCE: will not read my sd-ms/pro-mmc-sm-xd memory stick

What OS are you using? First thing would be do a system shutdown and wait a minute or so. Try to see if that fixed it. If not, For Vista: Start > Type Device Manager (once found click on it) > Locate something that has something to do with SD/PRO or any other type of card related thing (Mine is called SD host adapter if that helps) > Click on the + , choose/highlight what is under it (Mine is SDA Standard Compliant Host Controller) > Right click > Disable (Wait a while until your system disable this device.) > With it still highlighted Right Click , Enable It worked for me, I hope this works for you as well.

Won t recognize sd card

It seems that the card reader if the computer is not detecting the card. Make sure that the memory card you use is supported.
The multi-in-one card reader on the Aspire One can read and write to Secure Digital card (SD), Secure Digital High Capacity card (SDHC), MultiMediaCard (MMC), Memory Stick (MS), Memory Stick PRO (MS PRO), and xD-Picture Card (xD). Specific models of the Aspire One are also equipped with an SD Expansion slot that can read and write to Secure Digital (SD) and Secure Digital High Capacity card (SDHC) cards.
The multi-in-one card reader on the Aspire One can read and write to miniSD, microSD, Memory Stick Duo,and Memory Stick PRO Duo cards but require the use an adapter. Acer does not provide or support any memory card adapters.
You can try removing the card reader using the device manager and the reinstall it and check the operation. You may also try using the card is different computer and check. Also try using another card in the computer with the issue and check. If the issue is not resolved please revert back with the model number.

How does the media card reader work on the side of the hp pavilion dv4. It is supposed to allow for a ms/pro but it just kind of falls in. It almost looks like an adapter is supposed to fit in the slot

The Digital Media Slot supports the following digital card formats:
● Memory Stick (MS)
● Memory Stick Pro (MSP)
● MultiMediaCard (MMC)
● Secure Digital Input/Output (SD I/O)
● Secure Digital (SD) Memory Card
● xD-Picture Card (XD)
● xD-Picture Card (XD) Type H
● xD-Picture Card (XD) Type M

Here's how to use the memory card reader:

Unable to upload pictures from memory card to computer

Most laptops that have a memory card reader will only read these types of cards, without needing an adaptor: -SD card -MMC card -Sony Memory Stick or Memory Stick Pro cards -XD cards
However, you have a MS Pro Duo card, although it fits into the card reader slot, the card is a lot thinner than what's expected, so the laptop won't be able to read it.
You need to put the Pro Duo card into the stanard size MS Pro caard adaptor. See attached image.
Hope this helps.
