Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I bought a Sandisk Extreme lll SDHC card , that came with a reader ( ImageMate 8 in 1 SDDR-88) I cannot get this reader to work properly..I am using Windows XP. I apparently, do not need to update or download any drivers, for this product. It is a plug n play USB device. All that happens, is that the green light continually blinks, when l insert the SD memory card into it. The computer recognized the device, but that is as far as l get. No files are detected. What am l doing wrong? Please help.


Answers :

It rather sounds like you're inserting the card after inserting the reader into the PC... am I wrong?

\015\012As long as the device is detected in the Device Manager (system properties), it should be fine.

\015\012Insert the card first, then insert the USB reader. From there, check that you get a drive-letter. If you do, great.. if it's brand new, it may require formatting the disk before you can open it and start putting things on it or using it in a camera.
\015\012
\015\012When you say "no files are detected", i'm assuming you don't simply mean "there are no files already on the SD card"... because that's normal if it's new. =-]
