Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Cannot read Removable Disk (SD, I:)

\015 Hi,\015\012\015\012I have an Acer Aspire M3100 with Vista home premium. I cannot read S.D.'s. I had been able to in the past, and I have checked with other computers that the S.D.'s are still completely functional. Now the problem is that for some reason, it still detects a new drive, but it does not have the auto-run-like box asking how I want to open the disk (windows media player, itunes, picture viewer, folder window etc.), and when I try to access it through the computer window, it does not respond. I suspect some kind of software issue. How can I fix this, short of completely reinstalling everything?\015

Answers :

Are you using the SD on two different Operation Systems?(MAC and PC)

If not, reformat the SD on the computer that it is not opening on. You should be able to see it when you goto MY COMPUTER, it will be the removable disc. It will probably be letter E: or D: Right click it, after finding it in MY COMPUTER. And quick format it. After you open up my computer, double check that it is the right drive before formatting it, remove the SD and the letter should disappear from MY COMPUTER


What is the SD from? You could try leaving the card in the camera, and using it's usb cable connection instead.
