Why is computer not reading the SD card?
« on: 04/08/2008 01:58:52 »
For some reason the computer isn't regonizing my 16 GB card while its in the camera, but I put it in a reader and it regonizes it just great. Its funny though because I put a 2 GB card in camera and it regonizes it.

Thanks in advance.

Some digital cameras are only compatible with SD cards up to 2GB.
(This hardware limit is stated in the camera's instructions).

Some people just can't be bothered to read the instructions. Then, when things go wrong, they come here asking dumb questions!  :P

I'm not sure what would happen putting a 16Gb card in a camera which can only cope with a 2Gb, I've never tried it.
Perhaps it could only use 2Gb of the 16Gb SD card.

Noo, the cameara says up to 16 GB, and it saves the files to it and everything just fine.

The camera said 16 GB. Ughh

it may be worth checking for driver updates, as sometimes they can fix this sort of issue.  Seems strange that the computer should have an issue, as the camera is perfectly happy to play with a 16Gb card...  Surely your card reader is just as quick/quicker than USB'ing straight from the camera anyway?

Yes, I thought it would be faster to use the reader, BUT I have to take it out Everytime I have to take files off of it.

I shall see what I can find.
