Mine IS a Standard SD Card, Not HC

Mine is a standard 1gb SD Card, not HC, but it still won't recognize it. I'm thinking about trying a CF card? Any advise on that? Thanks.

    I know NOTHING about how to format..........nothing whatsoever' HOWEVER, the good news is that I put in a CF card and it works perfectly. I backed everything up on it, and within HOURS, I had to use it to restore everything back.



    I went to an office supply store to get a new backup battery, (still don't know what kind I need), and when the guy tried to check, he removed the main battery, so ALL of my data was completely gone. Had I not gotten that CF card and backed everything up a few hours earlier, it would have been a nightmare and a total disaster!



    I would like to know what kind of backup battery I need, and also how to format an SD card. Thank you.

I bought a 4 gig SanDisk Adapter micro SD, micro SDHC. my Acer Aspire will not recognize the card, i've tried the switch both ways multiple times. how can i get my PC to recognize the card?

My reader will not read mine either. I use a usb key card reader. It used to read the regular old SD cards but the new HC card format wont work. This is due to UDF differences. You can try to reformat the card but then your camera or device may not recognize it anymore. good luck

My Pavillion dv 1000 wont read a micro SD card (in adapter) My camera recognizes and uses the card fine (with adaptor). My laptop recognizes standard sized SD cards fine also. It is not a HC micro SD. ...

If its above 2 gb most older laptops won't because the card is in FAT and not FAT 32. cards 4 gb and over are written differently you can hook your camera up to your computer and transfer then that way or purchase a HCSD card reader for higher capacity cards.

My sandisk wake ur phone up adapter 4gb isnt workin in the card slots on the tower

Please bear in mind, that 4GB cards will most likely be of the newer SD HC (Secure Digital - High Capacity) standard, which is not recognized by older devices that only support the basic SD specifications.
You have to try a 2GB card, or look for a non-HC 4GB card, but these are very hard to find.

Access data on 8Gb SD card

Hello,

Some older card readers will not read the newer HC-SD cards all memory cards larger that 4gb are HC-SD. You need to get a new card reader that states HC-SD compatible. Office Depot sells them as well as many online sites. Then just plug the new reader into a USB port and go.

I Hope this helps, If so please rate my solution.

I have a 4GB HC(?) card,it wont work in my computer

a 4GB card is certainly HC (High Capacity). What type of flash memory is it?

Be aware that some computers have a different boot sequence. Meaning that some will try to boot from the DVD/CD drive before the hard drive, some will try to boot from a USB device before those. The card being present in the drive could be telling the computer to try and boot from that (which I'm 99% sure is the problem there).

Next is the issue with the card being read. Until I know what type of flash memory it is (SD - Secure Digital, CF - CompactFlash, etc..) this is speculation. I know with SD there is standard SD and SDHC (SD High Capacity). Older card readers are only capable of reading standard SD cards and while they will acknowledge the existance of SDHC because it is the same form factor, it won't know how to read it.
