Answers :

The memory card reader on your computer may not be able to read memory cards over certain capacities (4 GB).
\015\012To use your higher capacity memory card without locking up the computer, do one of the following:
\015\012
    \015\012
  • If you are using the card in a camera or other device, you can attach the device to the computer using a USB or FireWire cable. When connected, most devices appear in Windows as a Removable Disk and can be used in the same way as the card reader.
  • \015\012
  • Purchase a USB memory card reading device that plugs into any open USB port. Make sure the USB device is capable of reading SDHC. These devices are fairly inexpensive and can be used in any computer that has a USB port.
\015\012If the card reader stops working after using Safely Remove Hardware, reset the cable connections and memory card firmware.

If you are having problems reading and writing data to memory cards, use the following troubleshooting tips:
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Try a different memory card of the same type in the same slot. If the different memory card works, the card reader is good and the original memory card should be replaced.
  2. \015\012
  3. Some cards have a read/write security switch on the card. Make sure that switch is set to Write Enabled before attempting to write data to it.
  4. \015\012
  5. Make sure that the amount of data you attempted to store has not exceeded the capacity of the card.
  6. \015\012
  7. Inspect the ends of the memory cards for dirt or material closing a hole or spoiling a metal contact. Clean the contacts with a lint-free cloth and small amounts of isopropyl alcohol. Replace the memory card if necessary.
  8. \015\012
  9. Make sure the memory card is one of the supported types: CompactFlash (1, 2, and Microdrive), Memory Stick, MultiMedia, Secure Digital, or SmartMedia memory cards.
  10. \015\012
  11. Make sure the memory card is fully inserted into the slot.
    Remove the memory card when the light is not flashing and shine a light into the empty slot. Are any small pins inside bent? Replace the memory card reader or have the computer serviced if a pin is touching another pin. Straighten slightly bent pins while the computer is off using the tip of a mechanical pencil.
  12. \015\012
  13. If errors persist replace the memory card.
