x220 SDHC/SDXC card reader--speed with UHS-1

Question: x220 SDHC/SDXC card reader--speed with UHS-1

The X220multimedia card reader in the x220 works on the PCI bus and can read SDXC cards. I have seen comments here that it reads the UHS-1 cards. Can it make full use of the read/write speeds of the latest cards,such as the SanDisk Extreme Pro? Also, does it matter whether NTSF or exFAT is used when the card is used as a backup device, not intended for use in a camera? What are the advantages/disadvantages of using SDHC/SDXC cards for backup?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a Lenovo IdeaCentre, purchased only four weeks ago.  It product family is IdeaCentre k410, machine type 10089.  Anyhow, the problem is: I inserted a microSD / microSDHC, both of which seem to fit into the slot fine, though neither registers under anywhere in windows explorer, neither in the root of C://, nor in any of the subdirectories, or on the main listing of mounted file systems.  I used the Lenovo Driver Updater and re-installed the SD Card Reader driver, to no avail.  Any help would greatly be appreciated.  As well, the computer runs Windows 8, which has some features I'm unhappy with, and although this is not a windows forum and I don't mean to create a thread that deviates from lenovo-specific topics, I was wondering if there is anything in either the machine architecture or the software of Windows 8 that could hinder m in installing a dual-boot system so that I might have the option of running a variant of linux as a sub-operating system, as I did with windows XP.?????  OK any help at all would be so greatly appreciated, thank in advance.  I really want to be able to retrieve some writing files I have stored in that micro SDHC card.  As another aside, does anyone know the max limit of RAM this computer can take and if it is DDR or some other type?

Answer:SD/SDHC/SDXC/MMC/MS/MS Pro card-reader slot not showing up in windows explorer.

hi BrokenHalo,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Regarding your questions:
1. When you inserted the SD card, do you hear a sound that a device is inserted and under Device Manger, do you see a Card Reader?
 
If not, try to:
a. boot intto the BIOS by pressing F1, load defaults by pressing F9 then press F10 to save and exit BIOS.
b. Reseat the front panel connectors (see page 23 of the hardware maintenance manual)
 
2. To install linux (i.e. Ubuntu), see if you can install Ubuntu via UEFI. If you're unable to do so or if you want to install other OS, try to:
a. Boot into the BIOS by pressing F2 and set the following settings below 
 
UEFI Boot Mode = Legacy
Secure Boot = Disabled  (if applicable)
CSM = Disabled /  Legacy or Other OS (if applicable)
OS Optimized Default = Disabled or Legacy (if applicable)
 
b. When finished, press F10 to save and exit BIOS then try to install Ubuntu via Wubi or insert your Windows installation disc to install a different OS.
 
3. As per this pdf data sheet, the Lenovo K410 has a max RAM of 8GB PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3  but Crucial reports that this unit can take up to 16GB PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3 - check this site.
 
 
Hope this helps

Does anyone if the X220's card reader will take SDXC cards (larger than 32GB).  Since the SD card sits flush when inserted, there are fairly large cards out there, that could be used for storing stuff that doesnt need fast access like music or movies.

Does the R600 support the sandisk "extreme 30 MB" or the SDXC card?

Answer:SDHC extreme or SDXC card work in Portege R600

Hi

As far as I know the SD card reader supports the SD card up to 2GB, SDHC up to 16Gb and mini SD card (with adapter) up to 2GB.

I didn?t find any details about the usage of bigger SDHC cards and I think you will have to test it yourself?. But in my opinion there could be a problem using such cards!

Hi all, Am I correct to understand that the X220's built-in SDHC reader is on PCIe, rather than USB2? For example, if I were to use one of the fast 200x SDHC cards (such as SanDisk Extreme) -- would I get the full benefit of that card in the X220's SDHC reader? (Wheras, I gather, USB2 would be a bottleneck?) Thanks in advance!

Answer:What kind of SD card controller is in a Lenovo IdeaPad 120S-11AIP? SDHC or SDXC compatible?

Hi ITWorxLA,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
As per system overview :
IO port: Memory card slot (SD/SDHC/SDXC/MMC)
 
Platform specification:
One microSD Card slot, supports up to 2TB
 
Usually there would be stickers on the box or laptop to indicate the format it also supports.
You can try to find/borrow  a spare 32GB SDXC to test first before purchase.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards

I have a Twist S230u and just purchased a Transcend 64GB micro SDXC card (UHS-1 rated), which comes with an adapter to the SD interface that is compatible with the Twist's media card reader. Up to now, I have not tried to use any card larger than 32GB in the media card reader, and have never had a problem, whether using true SD cards or micro SD via adapters. But with the new card, I seem to be able to access only the first 32GB of memory. Once that limit is reached, files put on the card seem to go down the memory hole in a very strange way: As long as the card is active in the machine, files continue to transfer over to the card with no error indications.  But if you try to read them, they seem to open as empty (perhaps as filled with zeroes?). The file properties show correct information, and there is no data access error in trying to open one of of these files, but application programs complain of corrupted (wrong format) data. Now, if you eject the card and put it back in, the system complains of problems and asks if you want to scan and repair. Electing to do so yields the baffling response that the card was scanned and no errors were found! On top of this, the system still complains of card errors and asks if you want to scan and repair. This cycle will continue indefinitely.  But if you elect to skip the scan and use the card anyway, the directory seems readable, all the files seem accessible -- EXCEPT that files put on the card past 32GB have disa...

Answer:Only 32GB accessible on micro SDXC card via Twist media card reader

More information: It appears that the file system on the card looks OK to DSKCHK, but the dirty bit is set. Trying to reset it with fsutil, I am told that the computer cannot write to the card. I have tried to do this two separate ways: 1) by having the card (in its SD adapter) in the Twist's built-in card reader, and 2) by putting the card (in its adapter) into a USB SDHC card reader. The card can be read perfectly in both situations, but can neither be written to (including dirty bit reset) nor formatted. Command-line tools show the filesystem as extFAT, so it seems as if Windows 8 understands the card format. I alerted Transcend tech support to this and they simply replied that the card in question was 64GB (which I told them!), and I needed to be sure that my computer hardware could give me full access to the entire 64GB range. Can anyone point me to a spec for the S230u that says definitively what the upper limit on card capacity is through the built-in media card slot?

Am I able lto use SDXC cards with this device and if not am I able to upgrade the software to support SDXC cards?

Thanks for your help

Answer:Satellite A300 - Does card reader support SDXC cards?

Hi

I read in the forum about the card reader on Satellite A300 and I found very useful info.
The card reader supports following kind of cards:

- SD Card - 8MB-2GB
- SDHC Card - 4GB
- xD picture card - 16MB-2GB
- Memory Stick - 8MB-256MB
- Memory Stick Pro - 256MB-2GB
- MultiMediaCard - 8MB-1GB
- miniSD (with SD adapter) - 32MB-2GB

As you can see teh SDXC cards are not supported... in such case I recommend using an common external USB card reader which would support the SDXC cards

Hi and welcome to SF!
Yes, Windows 7 recognizes these formats natively, but I recommend that it be with the SP1 installed. As to whether your card reader will be able to read them, I'd say no - taking into account the age of your Dell. But if you can tell the model of card reader, I could tell with more certainty. Use Speccy - Download in case of not knowing what type of card reader. I look forward for your reply.

@YoannFromParis, Hello and thanks for posting on the HP support forums.  When dealing with the issues from doing an update to Windows 10 there are a few things that may work to fix the issue. First thing to try is running the Windows Update Troubleshooter. The next step is to run the HP BIOS recovery to reload the BIOS to see if it will sync up with the operating system. HP Notebook PCs - Restoring the BIOS And if this fails to fix the problem, if you did the update to Windows 10 you can do the stand alone installation to see if it fixes any conflict. Download Windows 10 The other option is to roll back to the previous operating system until new updates get released by Microsoft and then uploaded on the HP support page for your notebook. Please let me know how things go.  Thanks again for posting and have a great day.

Maybe if you told us the make and model of your card reader and whether it is internal or external, instead of putting all your question in the title and just a sad smiley where the information should be, you might get an answer.

Now the built-in SD card reader doesn't recognize SD cards that are recognized in external USB adapters.

Does anybody know if there is a maximum size of SDHC card for the card reader in the R500? I know that it supports SDHC but I am afraid there is a size limit? Will it take 8,16,or even 32GB SDHC cards?

I want to avoid purchasing a card that I can't use to its full extent as they are still quite expensive compared with normal smaller SD cards!

Thanks for your help!

I have a Satellite A500-1GH having Windows 7 64bit. I'm about to buy an SD card, and I was wondering if the SD card slot at the front of the laptop is compatible with SDHC cards and the latest SDXC cards. If so, do I need to download some software and/or drivers for these kind of SD cards to work?

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Satellite A500-1GH - Is SD slot compatible with SDHC and SDXC?

Hi,

SDHC is definitely compatible.

As for SDXC, I think there is a Win7 WindowsUpdate that supports SDXC.

I just inherited a Dell E6520 laptop that has had a fresh install of Win 7 Pro 64 bit put on it. All of the available updates through Microsoft Update have been done to date, and the drivers available for my service tag have been downloaded and installed from the Dell support site.

The only remaining problem I am having is with the on board SDHC card reader. I have a SanDisk 16GB SDHC card that the on board reader completely ignores. The reader works perfectly with a 4GB SDHC card. Both cards are formatted with a FAT32 file system.

The 16GB card works fine in an external USB reader, and it works fine in the on-board reader in my HP 6730B running Win 7 Pro 32 bit OS.

Any thoughts or ideas are welcome.

Thanks!

Answer:Dell E6520 SDHC reader can see 4GB card but not a 16GB

Dell has a memory card reader driver, listed with the various chipset drivers. Suggest you install the chipset drivers and the memory card reader and see if that helps.

However, some card readers on Dell's will not read high capacity memory cards, although this is new enough that it should.

As far as I know the Satellite A120 supports SD cards up to 1GB.
So SDHC cards are not compatible.

If you want to read SDHC cards on your notebook, you need an external card reader (USB).

Hi,Just received my brand new Sandisk Extreme 45MB/s 16GB SDHC card from Amazon.New card works fine in my cameras and also can be read fine from X121e IF I use an external USB SHDC card reader.However, when I plug the SDHC card into the built in reader then nothing happens - nothing detected, no additional drive letter etc. If I plug other 8GB or 16GB SDHC cards into the built in reader then they work fine. Have tried several. Have checked the new SDHC card with the h2testw utility and it reports fine. This new SDHC card was bought from Amazon direct - NOT a marketplace reseller etc... So, should be no question about its authenticity... Any ideas anyone please? I dont mind using the external USB reader but it is slower than the built in card reader when I test some of my existing SDHC cards...Plus it means pluggin another device in  - not ideal..

Well yeah, the problem is in the title. It's a 7764 with the standard SD/MMC reader. I had Vista Ultimate and tried to fix the issue for some time (changing drivers, installing MS hotfixes), but it didn't help, so I thought the last chance would be with Win 7.Now I have Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit and the issue stayed the same. After the card is inserted (in my case it's a SanDisk Extreme III 16GB class 6 SDHC, but I've read that other people with 16GB cards had the same problem), the system doesn't react in any way. Actually in Vista sometimes the Safely Remove Hardware icon appeared for a second just after inserting the card then disappeared, in Win 7 there's no reaction whatsoever). Tried to force the system to see the card, scan for hardware changes, refresh etc, no result. Any ideas? It's one of the best cards on the market, and definitely not some no-name, so why won't my X61 see it? It's supposed to be SDHC compatible (and reads my 8GB SDHC fine).Thanks!

Answer:SD card reader won't recognize 16GB SDHC cards (or bigger probably)

I had a similar problem with a card reader on a different laptop. I contacted TI (Texas Instruments - the card reader maker) and they indicated there was a limit on the card reader (actually the driver) and it would not read larger cards. The only way you will probably make it work is to get a driver update for the card reader that will read 16gig cards.

I have a Lenovo G780 laptop, and have had it for over a year, until 2 weeks back, everything was working fine. I started to have problems with the headphone jack where sound only came out of right ear.  Stereo Speakers were working fine. I made sure to go into Sound> Playback devices to make sure the Conexant Smart Audio was working right and the sound to L and R were balanced. I reinstalled the drivers (or what I found) and still it did not help. Now, a few days ago, the headphone jack stopped working completely (speakers still work). I retored my laptop to an earlier restor point (a month back when everything was working fine) and still no effect. Today when I tried to use the built in SD card reader, that I had used many times before, the card  reader would not detect it. I tried other Cards and they did not work either. I tried re installing the realtek drivers and got no effect. In device manager, whenever i insert the card, the wind refreshes, but nothing shows up in My Computer.I take good car of not laptop and there is no visible damage to any part of the laptop. I suspect the board inside is somehow damaged because the jack and card reader are located within a few mm of eachother. I have not yet tried factory restore, but all restore points do not fix the issue.

I do not have time to read users manuals for your notebook model but all supported cards can be listed there. I suppose SDHC is not listed and not supported.

I got an 8gb micro sdHC card filled up using the adapter, with music, which plays fine.

Before I received this cheap us>microSD adapter I asked the seller if it read HC cards. They said no. It's just a cheap chinese adapter on ebay so there isn't much info on it at all. It's write up didn't say anything about HC capabilities.

Like I mentioned, I was able to use it to load up an 8gb sdHC card.

Does this mean that it will probably also work with a 32gb sdHC card? Is there a size limit that the 8gb card didn't exceed?

If yes, I'd like to buy more now because I don't think these will hold up to much use.

I found the same item elsewhere on ebay which mentions that it recognizes up to 32gb, which is what I needed.

So....I suppose there are quite a few adapters out there labelled only SD but will in fact read up to at least 32 SDHC cards.

I think going over 32gb cards might require additional capabilities.

I am asking about X220 4286 systems with Win7 x64/8GB Ram and fingerprint readers. Users whose privileges include power-on and hard disk authentication by fingerprints cannot get the FP reader to accept their fingerprints at startup, but when they reach the login window the FP reader immediately accepts the same fingerprint.

Is it possible to make the power-on fingerprint setting "convenient level"? Thanks.

Question: SDHC reader issues

First, I'm not looking for help with my tablet problem, but this preface is to provide background information. I'd seen many USB card readers advertised, and I ordered the SanDisk MicroMate (a SDHC device), thinking I could connect this to my android tablet and quickly have additional (using a new 8GB SDHC card) storage for reading and writing. When the connection was made, however, the message was "Blank USB storage; USB storage blank or has unsupported format" I offer this to indicate that the reader does seem operational. The card couldn't be accessed using the tab's file managers.

In an attempt to figure out the problem, I tried using it on my two Windows PCs (both Win 7-64b computers, a desktop and a laptop) and found what are to me confusing results:
1. If I insert the new 8 GB SDHC card into the internal card reader of either of my computers, it is immediately accessible. I was able to copy a file to it. Format is FAT32.

2. If I connect the reader to a powered USB port on either computer, the reader device is shown with no errors in Device Manager, but when the card is inserted into the reader, the error "the drive must be formatted" appears.

Thanks in advance for any insights!

I have 2 desktops (with completely different configurations) and 2 USB3.0 card readers - Lexar Professional and Transcend card readers, paired with Lexar 1000x SD card.

The weird problem is that sometimes, the transfer of my RAW images will dip to usb2.0 speeds (around 30+MB/s). Sometimes, it takes a restart. other times, it takes an eject and re-plugging in to get back the USB 3.0 speeds. It happens on both card readers, and on either desktop - so I'm thinking it must be an OS related issue.

There are no special drivers required (none provided also if you're on win 10) and it's automatically installed by Win 10.

In addition, it happens regardless of whether it's on Intel's native usb3.0 ports or the 3rd party controller.

Has anyone else had that issue? How did it get resolved?

Haven't seen the same exact issue as yours but generally I find using a Self-Powered USB 3.0 Hub plugged into USB 3.0 ports on a computer to be the most reliable rather than relying upon the computer's ports to provide sufficient power and maintaining that constant power. For working with my clients I keep both Self-Powered USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 Hubs. In theory and most practical use USB 3.0 ports can fall back to providing USB 2.0 function. However, some older Thumb drives may not work in USB 3.0 ports as well as some older printers, etc.

Have had problems with two 8gig SDHC cards in a row when attempting to access the card via the built-in reader on the laptop.Both times this is what happened:For a few minutes I can access the card and view the photos, but after some time the pictures turn grey and attempts to access the card again lead to a message that card needs to be formatted. I would hate to lose the data on these cards. It has already happened twice which leads me to think that there is something wrong with the built-in reader, since the cards have worked fine on other computers. Has anybody had this problem? What can I do to rescue the data? I bought an external reader for the cards now to be on the safe side, but I would hate for this to happen again. Thanks.

Answer:SD reader corrupts SDHC cards?

This could be happen. Happen to me with an external card reader a long time ago. Test your SD card into another card reader to discard any SD problem. If it works good, the problem can be the card reader. To make a recovery, you can use software like GetDattaBack or Ontrack Easy Recovery. If your laptop still under warranty, call customer service. Maybe they will replace your card reader. Best regards.

Hi, I have read on the forum that people are using the SDXC cards with their Yoga 13's.I have purchased a Sandisk 64Gb SDXC ExtremePro card but when I put it into the Card Reader a blue screen comes up saying " Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart." It also gives and error with this message saying: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (TosExt.Sys). It cannot restart again until I remove the card, the same thing happens in SAFE MODE also or if I try to start the computer with the card inserted already. The card is brand new and I bought it in a reputable shop. I have tested the card in a Lenovo ThinkPad X230 and it works fine. I have also tried to insert a different standard SD card into the Yoga but the same thing happens. I have reinstalled the driver for the reader but the problem still remains. The OS is Windows 8 64 bit. The card is in ex FAT format and I re-formatted it again just to be safe but still no luck. I was not able to find anything regarding this online but saw that some people here have similar problems.I would really appreciate if someone could help or at least let me know if there is a way of contacting Lenovo about this problem, I see that they will only accept emails regarding the ThinkPad product line.Thank you in advance and best regards to all!

Came across a 3.5" Acer Multicard Reader with a USB port (P/N: CR.10400.002) and plugged it into the floppy slot of one of my computers (running Win XP SP3). Tested the USB port and two commonly used card slots - for SD and Compact Flash. The USB and the CF slot worked fine. However, the SD slot only works with SD less than 2GB. It cannot read SDHC of 4GB. A message says something like "Access Denied. An error with I/O device". It appears that this card reader could be aged and cannot read the faster SD card with large GB. Are there ways to configure this card reader so that it is SDHC compatible. I've been searching for drivers for this Acer card reader but so far fruitless. Appreciate your help to fix this problem. Thanks.
 

Answer:Multicard Reader with USB Port not Reading SDHC

I believe that >2GB SDHC support requires SDHC compatible hardware in the reader itself. An SD only reader can not be made to work with SDHC cards with a driver update.

I've had a time of it with Hardware and Software support trying to get an answer and hope someone here might have had the same issue. I've had a H405 7723-1AU  for about three weeks now. I've been using SD and MicroSD cards in the Media Reader with no problems. I popped in a brand new Transcend SDHC 16GB (Class 10) card today and it doesn't get recognized. I've installed the Realtek USB driver from the disk - it previously had the MS generic driver - to 6.1.7600.30116 3/12/2010 but it still doesn't work. The machine "acts like" it's going to read (well, the hard drive light show a lot of activity when it's inserted) but then it just sits there... To test the card I hooked up my 5+ year old SanDisk USB reader and it reads all the cards; SD, MicroSD with SD adapter, and SDHC just fine... slow transfer though. Lenovo Software Support thinks it's a bad Media Reader, and of course, Lenovo Warranty thinks it's a driver issue. Any ideas from an experienced user? Thanks in advance!

I have a Lenovo G50-80 with an internal SD Reader/Writer installed on my Windows 10 laptop. Whenever I put in a SD card, it is not reconized. It has worked before, but then slowly started to fail overtime. I've looked in the Device Manager, and "Disk Drives > SDHC Card" is faded stating it is "Not Connected" I've atempted to use the Realtek SD Card Driver that was in the driver section for B50-80, but it did not work. Could it be the hardware itself? Or is there a specific driver I need to install? Any help and directions are greatly appreciated.

Well, so I bought a "Transcend 128GB High Speed Class 10 UHS Flash Memory Card" which says to have 90MB/s read and 60MB/s write. What I got on x1c is ~56MB/s read and ~34MB/s write.So you can pass those UHS-II cards (280MB/s read, 250MB/s write).

I have used the Ricoh reader to back up my data partition by drag-and-drop copy to Transcend SDHC card. When I try to use drag-and-drop copy again to copy the updated data partition I get the message that there is not sufficient free space. But when I use this procedure on an external USB HDD I do not have that problem--Windows simply copies over the old file on the external HDD. Why does this not work with SDHC card in the Ricoh reader? Also, with this Class 10 SDHC card the initial backup took ages! Please advise, as I really want to use SDHC in the Ricoh reader as a backup medium.

Answer:Ricoh reader-SDHC for backup-cannot do copy and replace

Hello,
 
My guess would be that the Windows "drag and drop" method does not account for duplicated files when calculating the size of the files to transfer.  You might want to look into a third-party program to perform the copy which does take that into account, or look into using the command line-based RoboCopy (filename: ROBOCOPY.EXE) utility to perform the operation.

I bought 2 64Gb SDXC cards back in September and my PC running Windows 10 PRO recognised these cards and I was able to write to them. I bought another one a few days ago, but the PC will not recognise the card and when I tried the 2 cards I already had again, it wouldn't recognise them either. The PC will read an 8Gb Kingston 133X card and lots of other small cards without problems. My laptop will read these SDXC cards without problems. It is running Windows 10 Home, which is also Version 1709, build 16299.98 & both laptop & PC are running what appears to be the same driver - a generic Microsoft driver dated 21/9/2006 version 10.0.16299.15 Also my digital camera and my Panasonic video camera will recognise the cards. I've tried updating the PC driver, but Windows insists that the driver installed is the best available. The PC has just done a big Windows update but that hasn't cured the problem. I'm baffled - has anybody got any suggestions?I don't really want to roll back to any old version of Windows, especially as I've no idea when the problem started. The card reader is built in to the PC and came bundled with the machine (about 7 years old) and appears to be some generic make as there is no manufacturer's name visible. I've ordered a plug-in card reader to see if that will work, but I'm not hopeful.

I'm getting a flash-memory video cam that uses SD/HC.

SD will work in these cameras, I understand, but I'm curious if my existing SD flash is fast enough. SD denotes speed by X, i.e. 50X, 60X or 150X rather than by the new SDHC "class" designation.

The camera requires "Class 4" or better. What is this compared to 150X on an SD card?

Thanks for any help. I haven't been able to find anything on this in any of the obvious places.

I believe you are the first one with this question.
Let?s see if anyone here already has such cards.

I don't even found the price for such cards.

I am pretty sure Toshiba didn't test card reader with this cards but only with cards mentioned in ?User?s manuals? document so if this will works it will be nice, if not ? bad luck.

Lenovo T510 4313-CTO Recently reinstalled Windows. SD card reader works, but now recognises my 64GB SD card as 32GB (27GB). I have reformatted the card (using another device) as exFAT, FAT32, and NTFS. None of them show correctly. Sometimes when I insert the SD card, Windows instantly says the card needs formatting, but only allows 27.8GB to be formatted. I have reinstalled Windows before, but have always used the official Lenovo recovery discs. This time I used an official Windows 7 Ultamite disc. Once installed I downloaded all the drivers from the Lenovo web site. Everything works perfectly but the SD reader. I am 100% positive the SD card reader at one time recognized my 64GB card. I used it for over a year to transfer files directly onto the 64GB SD card.
