Can mount SD Ultra II in Vista but not in XP

Hi, I've just bought a 4GB SanDisk Ultra II for use with my Canon 640. Both images and video are fine when viewed under windows Vista. When I try to read the memory using Windows XP - I receive the message "Please insert a disk in the drive". This happens both with my desktop computer and also with my laptop. Please, have you any idea what's going on?

It sounds like thet are using different formats you can change the format of the information you can find this using a search engine or it might be that yiu will need to install the software for it as the vista version has all the latest software versions did you get any software with it and is the software for your canon 640 installed on this also try reinstalling all software then try again and see if that solved your problem as this does sound like a software problem maybe a corupt file or even could be a virus but i would try reinstalling the software first as this is often the case hope this is some help post back if still have problem...........................

It sounds like you are using a different level of operating system and the preview feature is not available, or the windows media version is out of date. Also check to see if your version supports the file extension!

The CF card has nothing to do with the information that is sent to it. It is just a recordable medium that stores what the camera sends to it. There is some other problem with the settings of the camera that caused the photos to be underexposed. Do you use RAW mode for capture of the images? If you do then the Canon RAW conversion software can batch process the photos to correct the exposure.

Some cameras cannot handle over 2GB memory cards. If it works fine with 2GB card - stick to that. If some other A620 you know operates with 4GB card, take yours to repairs.

Camera reads, computer doesn't


That is odd. Try the recovery software that comes with the sandisk cards and see if you are able to get them after that.
Do you format your cards each time in the camera before shooting?

Sandisk ultra 2 1.0gb will not download onto my computer?


Inspect the camera itself under good light with a keen eye. You may find a pin is bent, broken or missing in the flash card compartment. This would require the aid of a camera technician to fix. If this is not the case though, then perhaps the card has become corrupt or faulty. I would suggest purchasing a leading brand card reader(eg lexar or sandisk) as they often come with image recovery software to help in these situations. Good Luck!

Will Sandisk yltra II 4gb card work with Nikon D40?


I assume you mean Sandisk Ultra..and the answer is Yes it will work fine.

A good choice card also..

Just beware that some computers will need the SDHC reader.
For example my SDHC cards can be read in XP without the reader but my Vista machines need the reader.

Good luck and happy shooting :-)
