Question: Re: 8GB Verbatim Micro SDHC card recognized as 1GB Micro SDHC Card

Dear All,

A brandnew VERBATIM 8GB Micro SDHC Card is only recognized as 1GB in my T130 / WIN 7 - funny enough: A brandnew SANDISC 8G SDHC Card is recognized as 8GB
Anything I can do here to use the VERBATIM Card ?

Any Feedback is much appreciated

Answer: Re: 8GB Verbatim Micro SDHC card recognized as 1GB Micro SDHC Card

Where did you buy that 8GB SD Card? Are you sure it's genuine?

If you got it from eBay or similar, it may be a fake SD Card that is physically 1GB but reformatted and re-badged as 8GB.

I want to get an SD memory card for my digital camera

I can get a class 4 Micro SDHC Memory Card for the same price
I've loads of SD adapters lying around so can use the smaller one with my digital camera

Will I have any problems doing this??
i.e. get the smaller memory card and use in my camera with the adapter?
Then I have the freedom of using it with my mobile phone if I every needed to

Is there any effect in the speed - the fact that we're using through an adapter?

Thanks!

I recently bought a Samsung SDHC micro card for my MS surface laptop. Unfortunately the card does not work and I suspect a driver problem. However when I search for drivers I end up at sites in the US that want large sums of money. The Samsung site seems to be no help. Can anyone suggest where to go from here?

Hello and good afternoon, to u all. I have some queries on behalf of a friend of mine that uses the nokia E63 mobile fone.Firstly he didn't know what kind of memory card the fone accepts, so I checked online and confirmed that it uses the MicroSD memory card.Here:click hereOur main query is that i'm looking to get a unversal card reader for him from ebay that can read not only his Micro SD memory card, but ALSO other cards.....but we have no idea, if we'll still need to get an adaptor to insert the memory card into....or whether the card can just be inserted straight into the card reader....Here is 1 on ebay:click hereSo for example will this one work with a micro sd card and if YES.....do we still have to get the adaptor for it, or can it be inserted straight into the card reader pls????Many thanks

Answer:Nokia E63 and Micro SDHC card reader

Copied this from the specs Slot 2 - Trans Flash and Micro SDLooks like it will accept Micro SD but adapters cost practically nothing, in fact you should get one free when you buy a Micro SD card.

I purchased a 32 GB micro card on eBay a few months ago and come to find out, it was a fake. So,  I bought another one and filled it up to about 29GB and it worked fine for a few days then it just stopped working and now the phone I had it in won't recognize it's in there nor will my laptop. The difference being that at least my computer sees that something is there but won't read it i.e. it says drive h: in computer when I put it in but says insert drive when I try to access it. Also, it starts to get extremely hot after a few seconds to a minute. My husband has one as well from the same company, the same brand and has 30GB of stuff on his and hasn't had a problem yet (this has been at least three months ago now). Before anyone says it; yes it is 32GB, I tested it before I put it in my phone (thus the fact that I had 29GB of stuff on it before it went screwy), yes it is in the slot properly or else it wouldn't even say H: drive at all and no, my card reader isn't bad and yes it is compatible with my computer and the card as it is what I used to put the stuff on it originally and it still works fine with my husbands 32GB card and all of my other cards. My computer works fine with his card and it worked fine with mine before it went bad. Now, all of that being said; is there anything that can be done or will I have to just buy a new one?

Hi i was thinking of purchasing a MP3 player from newegg.com <http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16855705012>

it says the expansion slot is for micro sd, but i was wondering if it would recognize a micro sdhc, because the biggest micro sd i can find is 2gb and i want at least a 4gb, which would mean i would have to use a micro sdhc.

Please post back if you have any suggestions or know if a micro sdhc would work in a micro sd slot

Thanks-Huffman
 

Answer:micro sdhc compatiblity with micro sd mp3 player

SDHC, SDHC and miniSDHC will not work in their "regular" counterparts. Whether the slot is only an SD, rather than just not being marketed as HC capable, ask the manufacturer.

Hi SevenForums,
I just bought a brand new Verbatim SDHC 8GB SD card, but whenever I try to extract files to it, it will say disk is write protected. I have tried locking it, unlocking it, but nothing seems to be working. I am using a Kodak 50-IN-1 Card Reader to use the SD card with my computer. Could it be the card reader?

Answer:How Do I Disable Write Protection on My 8GB SDHC Verbatim SD Card?

Return the card to the vendor and get a replacement. I would think that your card is in the locked position and the slider switch is defective.

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.

Thanks
 

Answer:Can My Usb>microsd Adapter Read Sdhc If It Fills An 8gb Sdhc Card? Seller Says It Won't.

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.

Question: Micro SDHC????

I just bought a 4GB Micro SDHC card that I wanted to use for storage. I plugged it in to the SD adapter and put the sucker into my SD memory card reader in my pc. Problem is that nothing happened. With normal SD cards I get the device read in and I can use it for storage.

I believe my pc is not SDHC compatible. Is there some peripheral that I can use to bridge the gap?? A cheap adapter to make it compatible???

Posting links or product names is a huge help, I cant seem to find any and am not sure if this technology even exists.

thanks

Answer:Micro SDHC????

What OS are you running?
Does it show up in My Computer? If not try this, the card may not be formatted: Start > Right click on My COmputer > Click 'Manage' > Click 'Disk Management' on the left side. See if there are any unformatted/unpartitioned devices/disks that match the capacity of your 4GB SD card.

hi i recently ordered an unlocked htc shadow from newegg (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16875502026). it has a micro sd card slot in it, and i was hoping to use the phone as my mp3 player as well. So i was looking around for micro sd cards to see what i could find. Well my first problem was that normal micro sd cards only go up to 2GB. So i looked at micro sdhc (hc stands for high capacity) and i found up to 16GB. Also when i was looking at the phone specs for the htc shadow i one site said it only supported up to 4GB micro sd cards. Frankly i think thats ridiculous and the source is probably not reliable.

So what im really wondering is can i use a micro SDHC in my phone and do you think it will be able to read more than 4GB. Sorry for the long post i just want to be thorough. Anyways your answers will be much appreciated, thanks so much

-huffman
 

Answer:Micro sdhc in htc shadow

As you noted, there is a difference between SD and SDHC; the HC stands for High Capacity. If the device (the card reader) doesn't support SDHC, it won't work. It likely won't even see an SDHC card.
So an SDHC card won't work in that device.

Some older SD readers may not work with some SD cards over 1 GiB in size as well.

SD is for cards up to 4 GiB
SDHC is for 4 GiB - 32 GiB.
SDXC is for 32 GiB - 2 TiB

Hi all
given the fact that some micro SDHC cards are already 32 GB capacity and it won't be too long before 64 and even 128GB one's are available -- is SSD technology --although still in its infancy already on its way out.

Seems to me that if Micro SDHC cards can reach this sort of capacity (64 / 128 GB) capacity and the electronics is fast enough --these cards will last infinitely longer than an SSD drive and won't have any of the attendant properties of these drives either.

(Having just spent nearly 400 USD on a 256 GB SSD I could have been jumping the gun).

While USB2 or even USB3 is still comparatively slow there is no reason why a micro SDHC card with the proper interface should not be faster than an SSD on an enhanced IDE / SATA bus.

Cheers
jimbo

Answer:SSD or Micro sdHC cards ??

It isn't just the memory capacity that matters. You are forgetting one very key part of an SSD....the controller. A flash memory card still needs to run over some type of connection that's inherently slower, even if it was an eSATA card-reader, or something of the sort. An SSD uses a built-in controller (Sandforce, ie) to provide direct access (and maintenance functions) between the SATA interface and the memory.

We just bought an 8GB SDHC Transcend micro SD card from amazon. I did not realize there were probs. I put it directly into my tower in the card slot and nothing pops up. If I put my regular old 2GB micro SD in the slot, it immediately pops up, but not the SDHC card. Is there a fix for this? Something I can download to make it recognized or did I waste my money and get a piece of junk? Please help. This was actually my son's money; he wanted this, and I did not realize there was an issue with these until I googled the prob and had tons of people's complaints pop up.

Answer:SDHC card not recognized

Your flash reader is not SDHC compliant. Many SDHC cards come packaged with a small USB adapter. The SDHC card is (likely) not junk.

I am running Win 7 Pro 64bit, and the machine acknowledges the USB card reader, but does not see the card. The same card and reader combination works perfectly on my desktop running the same OS.

The machine was reimaged just before before it came to me and is 100% up to date with the Microsoft update site, and there are no red or yellow X's or triangles in the device manager. Any and all thoughts and suggestions welcome. Thanks!

Answer:16GB SDHC card not recognized, Win 7 Pro

Plug the USB card reader into the Back USB port of the computer and not the front or through a Hub, as these port are weaker. With the card in, go to Start/Search and type diskmgmt.msc, right click the diskmgmt results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Disk Management window, in the lower half you should see your USB Card Reader, and it should see your Card, however the files system may be Unallocated Space, or the Disk # (eg) Disk 1, Disk 2 etc may say Not Initialized (RAW)
If so, backup any files you want off of the card in the computer that can read it, Return the card here and in Disk Management, Right click the Unallocated Space/Create a new Simple Volume, Format it NTFS.

Answer:Best SDHC or Micro for System use: Boot, tools, installs?

My answer is probably not quite what you are looking for, but I mostly just look at brand and price. I usually buy a SanDisk card because I'm familiar with the brand name and their usually a little cheaper than camparable Kingston cards. I've also only ever had one stop working in 6 years of buying them. Basically, if I haven't heard of the brand I stay away from it. since you asked about speed, below is a link to a wikipedia page that discribes the how the different speeds are catagorized for SD cards.

@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.

I had Vista installed on my Acer  5610z laptop and I was able to read my SDHC card, I now have XP and when i put in the SDHC card in the internal card raader nothing happens. I downloaded the drivers from Acer website for XP card reader and still nothing. I know the card reader is capable of reading the SDHC card, because it was working with Windows Vista. I tried everything and still nothing. Anyone have an idea or suggestion.

Answer:SDHC card reader will not read card in XP, but it did in Vista?? Any idea?

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.

Question: SDHC Card

I have a Sony VGC RB62G computer with Win XP SP3. It will not recognize a 4GB SDHC card. Where can I find the drivers for the SDHC card?

Answer:SDHC Card

Hello and Welcome -A quick line or 2 on SD and SDHC complianceIf 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 specificationsThe 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 slotIf 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 cardIf 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 your computer manufacturer to see if they have a free firmware update for your model that will make it SDHC compatible3. You can buy inexpensive ... Read more

I plugged in my SD/SDHC Card device into my computer, multiple times to no avail. It's possible that my computer didn't detect it. How can I fix this?
 

Answer:Help with SD/SDHC card

Hi Angelique1472, and welcome to TSG.

I can't tell from your subject line and post if you are having a problem with plugging an SD/SDHC card into a reader on the computer or if your are having a problem with attaching an SD/SDHC reader to the computer.

In the first case, if you are using an SDHC card and an older computer, the reader may not be compatible with SDHC cards and may only support SD cards below a certain capacity.

In the second case, the reader may not be detected until there is a memory card plugged into it. If it is an older reader, it may not be compatible with SDHC cards. The reader may also require drivers be installed on the computer in order to function.

In any case, please give us the details of all the hardware involved and the version of the operating system running on your computer.

I got myself a HD video camera some time ago, and now I just need to buy myself a SDHC card for it. It will be 16GB, and has to be Class 6 minimum. I am rather confused on which one I should really consider purchasing. I have uploaded the pictures, so anyone can go have a look at them. I managed to narrow it down a bit to the ones that have a lifetime warranty on them, and of course are Class 6. I would prefer not to spend more than 100NZD + GST on one if possible. Each of the pictures should be showing NZD and GST anyway.
Which would would be the best one to pick, and why?
 

Answer:What SDHC card to choose....

I don't know if it's my screen resolution or your screen capture; but, I can't read the specs.

First, I would be sure my camera will not exceed the card's write speed. From there, all that would matter to me would be its read speed. The slower the read, the longer it would take to transfer data from the card.

As for lifetime warranty, bear in mind that one year from now, that same card may cost half as much and two years from now, the cost of shipping it back for replacement will probably not be much more than the cost of a new one of the same capacity. Bearing that in mind I would not consider a lifetime warranty of any more value than a two- or three-year warranty.

I was curious about how to fix an SDHC card that has started telling the camera the memory card has an error and that it is locked. Then when you went to put it in the computer the computer won't recognize it at all either. I did a Google on this problem and the only thing I could find was about the little slide on the side that would lock the card.

That was not the case with this as it happened in the camera. We were at a Luau in Maui and the card went to 0 and said Memory card error. Not a nice thing to see when you have a couple days worth of pictures from Kauai and another couple from Maui. I then placed the card in the computer when we got back from the Luau hoping I could recover them from the card. No program was going to be able to recover them because now the computer will not even recognize the card when I put it in. I cleaned the contacts on the card with a Q tip to make sure they were not dirty but that still did not help.

I was curious to find out what people have done to get the card to work. I did come up with a solution but am just wondering what others have done.

I'd first check Lenovo's site for any new drivers:Products - Lenovo Support (US)
Then, check for updates for Windows 10 in Settings/Update&Security
You can also check each of these devices by right clicking on the Start button, selecting Device Manager, and see if there's any issues with these installed devices.

Question: SDHC card problem

I have a Canon Ixus is850. Before holiday I found it would accept the SCHC cards and I bought a Kingston 4gb SDHC card as I knew I would likely be taking movies rather than stills. I have downloaded images from the card to computer Ok except for one which none of the software I have (Picasa, Canon, Adobe or Micro) recognise which is a movie at 1.3gb long. Shorter movies have downloaded from the card OK. It plays in the camera without trouble and when connected to TV. Yes we can watch it OK but I want to back it up. I have tried though the camera and through the card reader (which didn?t recognise the card) on both PC and laptop. Any suggestions please? Thanks

Help,

I bought a Canon 450D with an 8gb SDHC, didnt format the card, took a load of photos, then realised my computer would not recogise the card at all, i mean nothing, when in the SD drive and using an external card drive, so i tried connecting the camera to the computer and still nothing. Now the camera wont even recognise the photos and just says the card needs to be formatted, so i gave up on saving the photos but the camera will not even format the card now! So its useless to me right now.

I then bought a second 8gb card, formatted it this time, took a load of photos, still computer will not even recognise card, at all. But i do have a 512mb old card that works perfectly, no problems, instantly recognised.

Any thoughts? Are these two 8gb cards of any use? I did download and try 'Recuva' to find the photos but it was unable to find the card.

Any ideas appreciated.
 

Answer:Computer cannot see 8gb SDHC card

Older readers can&#8217;t read the new HD cards. But you should be able to access the photos through the camera connection. You didn&#8217;t say whether you tried the camera with the second card.

It sounds like the first card might have been defective. I don&#8217;t think you would get that kind of indication if the card had the write protection switch on, but check it anyway.

I am having problems downloading from a SDHC card.    In the past all I had to do was insert the card and the pictures were downloaded.   I'm now getting a pop-up on lower left corner of my screen that simply says SDHC.    I'm lost as to what to do.

Answer:Downloading SDHC Card

Upon the detection of a "removable" device, Windows can do a few different things.For example, insert a CD-ROM, and it will ask "open to view files", or "play music".In fact, Windows can be set to "automatically" do one of those choices. So, I think that, in the past, you had told Windows to automatically run some software to upload the pictures.But, that "default" seems to have been "lost". If you double-click that 'SDHC', does Windows pop-up a menu of choices?Is there a check-box to "automatically use my choice each time" ? If you open 'Computer', do you see a list of devices, e.g., 'C:' for your disk-drive, 'D:' for your CD/DVD,and maybe 'E:' is associated with the SDHC device?  Double-click on 'E:', and see what happens.

see: http://www.shopping.com/Fuji-FUJIFILM-128-sec-XD-Picture-Card-DPC-128/info

But all I see now in stores are SDHC memory cards which look somewhat different than the SD card i've been used to.

The guy at the Walmart tech dept. couldn't say for sure if their SDHC cards would fit my digital camera, because my camera & SD card were at my house, and he didn't want to guarantee a fit, sight unseen.

The card reader supports the SD cards 8MB-2GB and SDHC cards 4GB-16GB.
Therefore your card should be recognized without any big troubles.

Did you insert it correctly?

Try also to remove the card reader from the device manager and then reboot the notebook. After the Windows has booted again, the card reader should be recognized as new device. Then try to insert the CDHC card again

I've been searching this site, and found some answer with suggested drivers, but all seem for xp, while i'm using Vista Ultimate.

Hi all I have fresh new T500 P8600 (1680x1050) with Windows XP installed via recovery disks since yesterday. Today I wanted to move my photos from 8GB SDHC card and I was shocked that JPG files moved to the computer contained rubbish (not even started with JPG magic number). Originally I blamed card/camera from sudden malfunction but... Later I found out that while the filesystem reported 8GB, recovery software reported the card as 3.55GB large - and format reported the same size as well. There was no warning, card seamingly worked, but I guess the JPG data were beyond the limit that the T500 can read. I found other posts about SDHC problem, but I'm not sure if it is the same reason. Are bigger cards supported? Is it only SDHC problem? I don't have other types of cards to test. I will appreciate any hint on this issue. Thanks.

I wasn't sure if the driver is right, because in Device manager the SD card host didn't say "Ricoh" anywhere (and driver seems to be some Microsoft generic driver), so I rather reinstalled the Ricoh driver from here: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-68053.html No change, it still wants to format the card only to 3.55G. Colleague's Fujitsu-Siemens has no problem to see 7.55GB of the card. Is it driver problem or is the reader limited? (That would be real shame in such a recent notebook model.) EDIT: One more update - the card works just fine in reader of other colleague's T400. Frustrating. Message Edited by virgo47 on 05-14-2009 05:25 AM

So recently I bought a new camera and it came with a 8gb SDHC card. When I put the card into my computer, it can see it. I'm running Windows 8.1 .... Is there any driver or something that can get it to work again? Also I looked at the specs of my computer and it IS SDHC compatible, so what's wrong?!













Solved!

W520Win 7When I put my smart card into the reader and open My Computer, the card isn't shown.  I see C: and D: but no smart card.  I noticed that this only seems to happen after I have had the computer go to sleep in Maximum Battery Life mode. Another annoyance:  I thought I would just hit the "refresh" button on My Computer.  Big mistake.  The little green bar just keeps loading and getting slowly bigger for like 30 minutes until I finally get disgusted and restart the computer.  Then it can see the smart card...  Any ideas?

Answer:SDHC reader doesn't see the card.

You should update the Smart card reader driver and BIOS the check if the issue gets resolved.
 
Smart Card reader driver can be download from the mentioned below web link.

I have two questions to audience. Q1 I found I have IO errors so that is sign of my 1.8 inch hard drive is going to fail. I decided to buy faster SSD drive with higher capacity. For instance http://www.ebay.com/itm/182033131040. My question is if this SSD fits to my thinkpad. I heart that there are different form factor sizes.Can anybody make it more clear? Q2 I have plugged micro SHDC in my Sd card slot. If I plug out card manually and reconnecting again there is no drive recognized. I must reboot laptop in order to get it working. I upadted drivers. I do not know what is root cause of this problem. Any advice is welcomed.

Answer:SSD for T410s, SDHC card removal

Welcome to the forum!
 
The link you provided for Q1 tells me the item has been removed :-(
 
Generally speaking any 1.8" SATA drive should work. Alternatively you can buy a mSata SSD and a 1.8" to mSata converter, which gives additional options in terms of GB size and brands. But then you need to buy two products and be careful with the assembly (see some pictures here: click me! it's a German site but still you can see how this specific combination looks).
 
No idea about Q2 from my side... Sorry...

Hi.

I recently upgraded my Windows Vista 32 into a Windows 7 Ultimate. I'm not very tech savvy so I can't tell you details unless informed on how to. It's a Toshiba Satellite

Sorry, back to the topic, I have an SDHC card, and it worked fine, but I left it alone for a month or so and now I've tried to use it, and it won't read, and now my computer keeps making the sound as if I have inserted the card or a usb device into the computer. DO you think an upgrade may have messed with my computer?

Answer:Windows 7 SDHC Card not being read.

Welcome to SevenForums.

Since the upgrade to windows 7 might have not find any drivers during the process, i'll suggest you to go on the manufacturer site, searching for your computer model and see if there's any.

PS: Be more detailled about your laptop model, there's plenty of Toshiba Satellite!

I recently brought a SDHC 4GB card for a Christmas Present which is a GiiNii 8" digital Picture frame and I was going to use my computer, which is a Gateway 420GR with windows XP service pack 3 on it and a media reader, to load picture on to the card. But, the media reader will read a 2 GB SD card but won't read the 4GB SDHC SanDisk card. And I can't find a driver for it. Any suggestions?

I have Zorin OS v8.1 installed to my (Sandisk 16GB) SDHC, and from what I can tell, my computer (t420) can't boot from it. Is there possibly a way around that?

Answer:I have an issue booting from an sdhc card.

Reassign the reader as a usb.  Easy peasy.  I do this almost weekly when I need remote admin rights.

Hi,Question 1: I want to completely format and 'empty' a 4GB SDHC card to NTFS to use for Vista?Do not want to card to have system files left on or placed onto it and do not want it to be RAW.Please can you help?Question 2: Also want to enable the same card to run a program during bootup for Vista?Recently, sent an e-mail message to J T Technologies to ask how to do this.Received a reply stating that I must place onto the card the following files: BCD, BOOTMGR, HAL.DLL, NTOSKRNL.EXE, WIN.COMI placed these files and Malwarebytes Anti-malware onto card, as an experiment, to see if it would run during bootup!But, of course, it did NOT work and an error message was displayed.So, I contacted J T Technologies to ask the following question: "What other drivers and/or files do I need to place onto the SDHC card together with the ones already placed onto 'it'???".The next day, in response to that question, I received the following reply:"(A program) will not run unless you load Windows first then install the program".I then replied with "Why do you need to place the Vista operating system onto a SDHC card when it is already installed?".In response I received the following message on the same day!:"You don't need to install Windows you need to load/bootup Windows and install the software in Windows by double clicking the .exe file".But, as yet I have not responded!So, even though I have not responded, yet, that question still stands!What do you think? I look forward to your reply!... Read more

Answer:Have 2 questions in reference to a 4GB SDHC card

It would help to know which specific application you want to install on the memory card.In most cases though, applications cannot be installed on to a memory card. That location will not be available in the install options.You need a "portable" version of the application if you want to run it from a memory card. Portable version doesn't need installing.message edited by phil22

Installed the posted drivers for win7 x64 on Y730 for the card reader.  Still unable to read 4GB cards, 1GB and 2GB work but the SDHC ones seem to not.  It works in Linux, so I know the hardware is capable.  Just a windohs thing i guess. Almost a month and no replies, is anyone else having this problem?  The original installation of Vista reads the SDHC cards fine, but the drivers for Win7 just plain don't.  Would be super if this can get fixed since the U330's got their BIOS update.

I just bought a sandisk 32 GB SDHC card. The card will only hold four photos. How do I make the SDHC card work properley??

Answer:SDHC Card GB 32 will not save more than four photos.

Where did you buy the card from? It could be a fake.Does the capacity show up correctly in 'Computer'? Did you format it in your computer first and what filesystem did it format as - FAT32 or NTFS?"I've always been mad, I know I've been mad, like the most of us..." Pink Floyd

The card accepts audio and video data but when trying to play them on windows media player/real player the players message that the format or the codec used to compress the files is unknown to the players.

Tried K-Lile 9.10 full version and FFRoad show of no avail.

My system is windows XP with SP3 runs on Pentium 4 platform.

Any suggestion please?

Dear all, I feel terribly stupid, but the following is the case:Something seems to be blocking my SDHC card reader at the right front side of my X220. I cannot insert a SDHC card therefore. I know sometimes these readers contain a plastic dummy, which might be the case now as well, but if it is I'm not able to dislodge it without applying so much force I'm afraid i will damage something. Does anyone know what to do? Thanks!Jan

I have a small little card reader on the front of my laptop,
previously it's been able to read my card,
now it doesn't read it, well it kind of does but if I click to open it
it says to insert a card, it shows in My Computer but I can't access it
if I put any of my other cards in then they're read fine
i've even used other adapters and tried moving the card
but it doesn't work, also today for some unknown reason
there's now a pin on the card when it's in my phone
it has no un/lock slider on this card it seems the phone has randomly pinned it
I can't reformat it, it has stuff on there I can never get back
is there any way to fix the problem?

Hello everyone,

I'm having trouble with my laptop. It's an ASUS laptop running on Windows 8.1. I've had this computer for about a year now and have had no trouble before with having it pick up whatever SD cards that I insert into the port. However, a few weeks ago, I noticed that it will no longer read SD cards at all. When I updated to Windows 8.1 about 3-4 days ago, nothing changed. Cards still will not be read. I've tried 4 different SD cards before and after I undated windows. I've also tested the SD cards on other computers to make sure that the cards themselves were not faulty. {Which they are not. They are perfectly fine on other computers.} I've snooped through Disk Management on my windows and the SD cards will not show up on the list.

I'm hoping to get some help with this problem. Thanks in advance.

Answer:Does Equium M70 support 4GB or 8GB SDHC card

Hi!

The Equium M70 supports only SD cards up to 1GB so SDHC cards will not work.

You can find this information in the user manual. I have checked it and so I know this.
If you don?t have the user manual you can download it on the Toshiba website.

Bye
