Q: SD/SDHC/SDXC Digital Media Card Reader

Regarding my HP Spectre x360 (P0A44AV), What is the Media Card Reader's capacity (max)? Is there a list of known capatible brands/models? If so, where is it? Where can I find detailed specs on the card reader, and supported memory cards? Thanks in advance for any help re this inquiry. Charles

Preferred Solution: SD/SDHC/SDXC Digital Media Card Reader

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Nowhere in the documentation, web site is any info about what kind of controller and hence what size SD cards this model is supporting.Even Lenovo tech support doesn't know that info!I am really hesitant to buy a SDXC card of +32GB only to find out it supports on SDHC cards, thus limited to 32GB... thanks for any useful info, Ralf

A:What kind of SD card controller is in a Lenovo IdeaPad 120S-11AIP? SDHC or SDXC compatible?

Hi ITWorxLA,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
As per system overview :
IO port: Memory card slot (SD/SDHC/SDXC/MMC)
Platform specification:
One microSD Card slot, supports up to 2TB
Usually there would be stickers on the box or laptop to indicate the format it also supports.
You can try to find/borrow  a spare 32GB SDXC to test first before purchase.
Hope this helps answer your query.

I have an HP Pavillion DV1000 notebook and recently made the *wonderful* jump to Vista. My problem is this: my on board digital sd card reader no longer works. There is a light next to it and upon insertion of the card, it no longer lights up. I have checked the driver via device manager and it is up to date and also states the hardware is working properly. I have tried downloading the driver manually, but it tells me it still says it is up to date. i am in desperate need of this as I have NUMEROUS pics I need to transfer since I don't have the cable to connect the camera to the p.c. either.

A:Digital Media Card Reader and Vista

Try uninstalling the device in Device Manager and rebooting to have Windows reinstall the drivers.

I see that the new high speed SDXC & SDHC cards that are using UHS-1 will be in exFAT format.
Will my Win7Pro32 using NTFS format recognize these?
Are there new drivers I need to download for my card reader to see these?
I have nor purchased one of these new cards yet for my new HD camcorder, so would like to know before I do the big spend on one of these high speed cards.

System is a Dell Inspiron 530 about 2-3 yrs old.

Hi and welcome to SF!
Yes, Windows 7 recognizes these formats natively, but I recommend that it be with the SP1 installed. As to whether your card reader will be able to read them, I'd say no - taking into account the age of your Dell. But if you can tell the model of card reader, I could tell with more certainty. Use Speccy - Download in case of not knowing what type of card reader. I look forward for your reply.

@YoannFromParis, Hello and thanks for posting on the HP support forums.  When dealing with the issues from doing an update to Windows 10 there are a few things that may work to fix the issue. First thing to try is running the Windows Update Troubleshooter. The next step is to run the HP BIOS recovery to reload the BIOS to see if it will sync up with the operating system. HP Notebook PCs - Restoring the BIOS And if this fails to fix the problem, if you did the update to Windows 10 you can do the stand alone installation to see if it fixes any conflict. Download Windows 10 The other option is to roll back to the previous operating system until new updates get released by Microsoft and then uploaded on the HP support page for your notebook. Please let me know how things go.  Thanks again for posting and have a great day.

I just inherited a Dell E6520 laptop that has had a fresh install of Win 7 Pro 64 bit put on it. All of the available updates through Microsoft Update have been done to date, and the drivers available for my service tag have been downloaded and installed from the Dell support site.

The only remaining problem I am having is with the on board SDHC card reader. I have a SanDisk 16GB SDHC card that the on board reader completely ignores. The reader works perfectly with a 4GB SDHC card. Both cards are formatted with a FAT32 file system.

The 16GB card works fine in an external USB reader, and it works fine in the on-board reader in my HP 6730B running Win 7 Pro 32 bit OS.

Any thoughts or ideas are welcome.


A:Dell E6520 SDHC reader can see 4GB card but not a 16GB

Dell has a memory card reader driver, listed with the various chipset drivers. Suggest you install the chipset drivers and the memory card reader and see if that helps.

However, some card readers on Dell's will not read high capacity memory cards, although this is new enough that it should.

Uninstall all devices under USB Controllers.
Uninstall all devices under Storage Volumes. Say no to any reboot prompts until you are finished. Also, if a Storage Volume doesn't uninstall, ignore it and move to the next one.
If you have a yellow ? with unknown devices, uninstall all of the entries there as well.

When this is done, reboot TWICE.

Hi Snwdemon, and welcome to TSG.

If might be rather difficult for any of us to offer any suggestions if we don't know the brand and model number (and maybe an FCC ID#) of your reader.

Does the reader packaging or documentation say it is supported by your operating system (XP Pro)?

Is it an external USB reader or one made to be installed in a desktop computer?

It is so small and sticks into the pro to where you can't see it. It does not stick out so I just leave it in there all the time. How would I get Media Center to see that as part of my Media Library?

You can add Video folders on the micro SDXC to your Video's Library in Windows 8.

Then when you set up Media Center browse to the Library where the video files reside and you will then be able to play all of the video files which reside in your Video's Library from Media Center.

Shawn's tutorial on adding folders or drives to the Library's should be helpful.

I have thinkpad w530 w windows 8.1 I am trying to capture video footage into my computer using a firewire card that of course plugs into the MEDIA CARD READER SLOT. I can't get the computer to recognize my camcorder- the camcorder connection does not show up in DEVICE MANAGER I am using HDVSPLIT to capture the video and also in hdvsplit there is a message, "camera not recognized" or something like that.  I am not sure if the media card reader is bad, or maybe the firewire card is bad or maybe it is the hdv split that is the problem? Any help will be greatly appreciated!

A:How do I tell if my Media Card Reader/Express card slot is functioning correctly?

Could it be the ExpressCard slot that the FireWire card plugs into?  I've never seen a FireWire card that plugs into the media card slot used for SD Cards.
FireWire cards can be a little tricky to get working sometimes, especially when interfacing with a camcorder. 
Have you checked with the manufacturer to see if Windows 8.1 drivers are available for it?  Even if they are not, it may be possible to use Windows 7 or even Windows Vista drivers. 
Once you have verified that the FireWire card is recognized, plug the camcorder in again, amd see if it gets recognized.  If it does not, check with its manufacturer for Windows 8.1 drivers, just like you did with the FireWire card.
At that point, the hardware should all be working with Windows 8.1.

First, I'm not looking for help with my tablet problem, but this preface is to provide background information. I'd seen many USB card readers advertised, and I ordered the SanDisk MicroMate (a SDHC device), thinking I could connect this to my android tablet and quickly have additional (using a new 8GB SDHC card) storage for reading and writing. When the connection was made, however, the message was "Blank USB storage; USB storage blank or has unsupported format" I offer this to indicate that the reader does seem operational. The card couldn't be accessed using the tab's file managers.

In an attempt to figure out the problem, I tried using it on my two Windows PCs (both Win 7-64b computers, a desktop and a laptop) and found what are to me confusing results:
1. If I insert the new 8 GB SDHC card into the internal card reader of either of my computers, it is immediately accessible. I was able to copy a file to it. Format is FAT32.

2. If I connect the reader to a powered USB port on either computer, the reader device is shown with no errors in Device Manager, but when the card is inserted into the reader, the error "the drive must be formatted" appears.

Thanks in advance for any insights!

It cannot read SDHC of 4GB. A message says something like "Access Denied. An error with I/O device". It appears that this card reader could be aged and cannot read the faster SD card with large GB.

Hello, I'm not sure if this question belongs here or in the Mac section, but hopefully I can be steered in the right direction...
I just purchased a Kingston Media Reader (FCR-HS3) to transfer files from my camera to my PC. However, It did not occur to me before buying to check if the reader might also work with my wife's Macbook. The packaging only indicates Windows XP/Vista/7 , but I read a few product reviews suggesting that it does (they did not definitively say so).

Will it actually work with both PC and Mac?

I bought the Reader on-line, so to save the hassle of mailing it back, I thought I might be able to check here first, instead of opening it, testing it, and then having to send it back.

Thanks very much for your time!

Rebooting does not fix the problem. After reboot, the device is still shown as unknown device. I was able to get it working again through a combination of uninstalling the driver, shutting down the system and reinstalling the driver.I think this has something to do with having other USB devices plugged in at the front panel, but I haven't had to time to prove that theory yet.I've seen other posts related to this on this board but no one seems to have had the problem resolved yet.Help please!Message Edited by ski4404 on 01-24-2008 10:33 AM

One day it worked and then the next day it didn't.

A:6-in-1 Media Card Reader not working

Read other 10 answers

I bought this desktop computer last year.  On the front of the tower is a 7-in-1 multimedia card reader that the HP site says is compatible to the Memory Stick Pro.  Today my digital camera broke and when I removed its Memory Stick and tried to insert it in the computer, I found that the Memory Stick was much smaller than the 7-in-1 and never would set in place, so much so that it slipped completely into the reader and I had to use tweezers to pull it out.  It never locked into place so the contacts never could allow the computer to read it... it just laid there loosely.  The 7-in-1 slot is exactly one inch wide, while the Memory Stick Pro is 3/4 inches wide.  I'm disappointed that I was led to believe that my reader was compatible when it apparently is not.  Is there a way to make this work or am I going to have to buy an adapter to use just one time before I throw this camera away?

I have a one month old XPS 8700 which is upgraded to Win 8.1 (64bit).  I tried to use the card reader for the first time yesterday with no success.  No indication upon inserting a valid SD card(tried 2), nothing in File Explorer .  No obvious entry in the Device Manager indicating the existence of the device.  No HW in the device manager indicating any HW issues.  Any thoughts other than opening up the box to see if it's connected?   Bailey05

A:XPS 8700 Media Card Reader Does not appear anywhere

Had the same issue with xps8700, win8.1.  Called Dell.  Was told to shut down, unplug machine, hold power button for 15 sec, then restart.  Worked like a charm!  Was told it is due to static charge on card reader.  Don't know whether that's true, but the fix worked!! Easy!

Have a Dell PC with a media card reader installed. Used to work fine ... then didn't. Got Dell hardware support ... which led to the replacement of the reader and the motherboard. Still cannot get the reader to be detected by XP. Have tried some system restores and get message that cannot restore to previous point - no changes. Not sure I agree with that. Wondering if this is now a software (XP) issue. Any ideas? Thanks.

A:Media Card Reader not detected by XP

When u go to the Device Manager what do u see? Is there a question mark next the faulty media card reader? Or is it not detected at all.
