2 GB Kingston memory card

Elaine_CanadaNovember 22, 2007

I have an HP Win XP laptop with a card reader in the side for my camera card. All of a sudden the computer does not recognize this card????

I can't get my pictures off it unless the computer recognizes the card - I don't know where to look to see what the problem might be.

Do you have another (different) card to try to see if that one works?

Sorry to be so long getting back to you - but yes I have the original card that came with the camera..... 16 mb and it works. Also a 512 mb that is at home.... bought the 2Gb card just before coming down south. From what I've been reading I'm starting to believe this 3 yr. old laptop just doesn't read the new 2 Gb cards that were not available 3 yrs. ago. Someone suggested trying a $10 card reader - I might do that. Haven't decided what to try next.

My cards have a small sliding lock on one side. Could that be the problem?

I saw that little sliding lock and tried it both ways, but it still won't recognize it. Guess I'll just get a new card reader and see if that works.

In case anybody is interested in this - the solution was to buy a $15 card reader at Staples (looks just like a flash drive or memory stick, except you put the camera card in the side of it). "Someone" was right when they said my laptop card reader at 4 yrs. old was just too old to read that size memory card. Guess a 2GB card had not been invented at that time. Technology changes every day!
