Is my card reader compatible with SDHC Cards?

Q: Is my card reader compatible with SDHC Cards?

I plan to purchase a CANON S5IS digital camera, and someone recommended that I use SDHC memory cards. I recently bought a Digital Concepts 21-in-1 Card Reader/Writer; however, I don't see the SDHC designation shown on the package. The only SD cards listed are: SD; SD-Ultra; SDC; and Mini SD. Will this reader read an SDHC card as well? Thank you.

Preferred Solution: Is my card reader compatible with SDHC Cards?

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.

Is it an old computer ? Those SDHC cards have evolved to higher capacities over time but your computer's Bios may be too old to read the larger ones.

@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.

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.

Hey everyone,

I bought a new desktop not too long ago with a 5 in 1 card reader built into the front of the tower under the CD drives. Up until recently those readers have worked fine and I use them with my digi cam SD card and my nokia MMC card to transfer files better than USB cables.

Anyway, recently when putting in cards, the usual XP box that asks you what you want to do with the files has stopped popping up, and to my surprise, when going into My Computer, the card reader's are no longer listed as removable devices! Before they were all present as devices with removable storage but now it's like they don't exist!

I have checked the connections going from the card reader to the motherboard and no wires are loose or anything, it's not like they would anyway, they were working fine before and nothing's been moved.

I emailed Acer and they didn't tell me anything, they said to do a full system restore to factory settings, but that would remove everything on this computer, and I don't want to do that cos there's loads of stuff on it I would need to backup and keep.

Is there anything anyone can suggest? There doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the hardware, it just doesnt seem to exist under devices.

Please help, I don't want to go back to USB cables!

Provided you have an adapter, I see no reason why not. The Mini SD to SD adapters are commonly available.

Recently my card reader has stopped recognising the cards inserted and when I try and open them I get the 'Please Insert Disk into Drive H:' message.

I have reformatted the cards (in the the camera not in Windows) and they work fine while in the camera.
Also if I connect the camera directly to the USB port it is detected, but still I get the same message when I try and open the drive.

I think this has started since I upgraded to XP from 2000 but seeing as I don't use it very much I can't be sure.

FYI the Camera is an Olympus Camedia C-4000 Zoom.

If I use a USB adapter it works but with P71 the computer doens't read anything.  I have secure boot disabled and CSM off, fast boot is also off. I also verified that USB setting is from factory and no devices are disabled under the OS.   I downloaded and installed both the Alcor / Realtek card driver for the machine, the issue is still not fixed.   Weirdly if I use a 256MB MMC (similar form factor as SD) it works normally.    I wonder what's the issue?

I have one of those add-in card multi-card readers that fits into a floppy drive bay and plugs directly to a terminal on the main board. I think it might be a Rosewill brand I got from Newegg.

If I go through the disconnect procedure to remove the card and want to reinsert any card later, I must reboot the computer before the card is recognized. Going into System and telling it to scan for hardware changes does no good, neither does View> Refresh in My Computer.

Any suggestions for a solution would be appreciated.

now I'M confused if I have always been doing this wrong.
I have always had multicard readers on my HP printers.

I use SD cards for the most part.

when I insert a card the "card present" light comes on--
when I'm done with the card--I just pull it out and put it back in to what
ever device I have it in.

there doesnt seem to be any errors or problems doing it this way.

I thought the only precaution you had to take was-- turn off the camera if
that's what you had the card in--before removing the card and make sure the
camera is turned off when you put the card back into the camera

but this is more protection for the camera then the card--

are you disabling the whole card reader when you use the disconnect hardware feature
to unplug a card

Hey Guys (and Gals, if any)...

I have upgraded my Vista Ultimate Aspire 9810 to Win 7 Ultimate(32). Everything is fine, so far, except for the 5-in-1 Memory card reader. It only reads up to 2GB. I cannot remember, when I had Vista Ultimate on it, if it read beyond 2GB.

Are there any updated drivers that support beyond 2GB on this Aspire? I hate to add a reader via USB for that only and wastes a port.

My HP desktop (XP SP3) is about 4 years ago and has a multi-slot card reader, which includes a MMC/SD slot. Similar with my HP all-in-one printer.

I am thinking of buying a new digital camera, most of which now use SDHC cards. Would I be right in assuming that my desktop is unlikely to be able to read them? Unfortunately I don't have a SDHC card to try out

A:Reading SDHC cards

Probably not, but card readers/adapters are pretty cheap. In fact I remember getting one bundled with my first SDHC card. Also, AFAIK SDHC readers are backwards compatible so you don't need to use an SDHC card unless you want to. I don't take so many pictures that I feel the need for anything larger than a 1GB card so I've never upgraded in my camera, only in my phone.

Hi all
given the fact that some micro SDHC cards are already 32 GB capacity and it won't be too long before 64 and even 128GB one's are available -- is SSD technology --although still in its infancy already on its way out.

Seems to me that if Micro SDHC cards can reach this sort of capacity (64 / 128 GB) capacity and the electronics is fast enough --these cards will last infinitely longer than an SSD drive and won't have any of the attendant properties of these drives either.

(Having just spent nearly 400 USD on a 256 GB SSD I could have been jumping the gun).

While USB2 or even USB3 is still comparatively slow there is no reason why a micro SDHC card with the proper interface should not be faster than an SSD on an enhanced IDE / SATA bus.


A:SSD or Micro sdHC cards ??

It isn't just the memory capacity that matters. You are forgetting one very key part of an SSD....the controller. A flash memory card still needs to run over some type of connection that's inherently slower, even if it was an eSATA card-reader, or something of the sort. An SSD uses a built-in controller (Sandforce, ie) to provide direct access (and maintenance functions) between the SATA interface and the memory.

My computer is a Gateway GT5692, 64bit w/Windows Vista. Recently I had to reinstall Windows. Now everything seems to work but that I can't read SDHC cards anymore. It used to work fine. I can plug in the SDHC card in the "Digital Media Manager". The led lights up, but the computer does nothing. I look on the drives page which normally lights up and nothing happens.

Also, I have 2 card readers USB'd to this computer. When I try to read an SDHC card from them, I get the same result. On one, I get the led to light up, but not on the other. Strange.

This is not the card. I tried 2 different cards; a 4GB SDHC and a 512 MB SD card. Same result.

So I'm thinking the driver?? But just which driver do I reinstall?

Hi I have just become the proud owner of a Libretto U100. I have a number of SDHC cards 4Gb/8GB/16GB. These do not seem to be recognised by the SD card reader in the U100. I installed Microsofts Hotfix:
WindowsXP-KB934428-v3-x86 and the cards were seen by the U100 but when the card is accessed the U100 locks up and I have to reboot. If I leave the card in then the U100 boots to a black screen requiring a further hard reboot with the SD card removed.

I have installed Windows XP Service Pack 3 but still the same problem occurs. Can this be fixed with a software patch or is the Libretto U100 SD card reader limited to 2GB SD cards.

many thanks

Hi mate,

I checked several sites and couldn?t find any information bus as I know there should be a SDHC controller version 1.2 in this machine (which is very unusual) and I am not sure if the controller can handle cards above 2GB.

So, I assume that the reader can just handle cards up to 2GB.


P.S.: You can try a BIOS update but I am not sure if it would solve anything

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!

I recently took 3 Lexar Platinum II SDHC cards on holiday to use on my Nikon D80 camera. All pictures saved on the camera, and I was able to review the pictures on the camera LCD, so I assume all was good.

Returning home, I inserted the cards into my PC card reader and that's when the troubles began.

One card was not recognized at all by my PC (i.e. doesn't see that I've inserted a card into the reader)
I was able to preview the pics on the second card, but after removing the card and reinserting, the PC is now saying that it cannot read the card and asks if I want to format the card
The third card, I was able to read and I've backed up the files to an external drive

The other two cards are now not readable by my camera either.

Looking through the microsoft forums, it says that there is a fix to enable XP to read SDHC cards > 4GB, but since I was able to read one card, I'm not sure if that fix applies (or maybe it was just dumb luck?)

I tried running recuva on the second card but to no avail. I can't try on the first card, because my system doesn't even see the card.

Any thoughts? As you can imagine, I'm desperate to get these files back!!!


A:SDHC cards - Corrupted, Windows XP problem, or something else?

What are the sizes of your cards?
If you have XP SP3, you don't need it. The hotfix was for cards larger than 8GB.

More importantly, when was your card reader manufactured?
If before 2006-2007, it probably doesn't support SDHC.
SD and SDHC are different.

I use a simple SDHC reader similar to this:http://www.walmart.com/ip/Digital-Concepts-SD-MMC-Card-Reader-Writer/5640640
Small enough to carry it everywhere.

You can also connect the camera to the computer. You should have recieved a usb cable with the camera.

As to why the camera now won't see the pictures, I don't have an explanation, unless you formatted, or tried to move files in Windows. I only ever 'Copy' files from the card in Windows. Let the camera do all the deleting and formatting.

If an SDHC reader doesn't work, you will have to try some recovery software.

Came across a 3.5" Acer Multicard Reader with a USB port (P/N: CR.10400.002) and plugged it into the floppy slot of one of my computers (running Win XP SP3). Tested the USB port and two commonly used card slots - for SD and Compact Flash. The USB and the CF slot worked fine. However, the SD slot only works with SD less than 2GB. 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. Are there ways to configure this card reader so that it is SDHC compatible. I've been searching for drivers for this Acer card reader but so far fruitless. Appreciate your help to fix this problem. Thanks.

I've googled online and found a variety of solutions for VISTA and XP but not for Windows 7. Anyone out there can help? Thank you so much!

Hi candiduke ,Welcome to the forums If the device is over 5years old then I don't think you can upgrade it to HC I may be wrong , Have you tried going to the Ricoh website and searching there ? Downloads | Ricoh Global

Hi. I got a 2-3 year old Lenovo Yoga 500-14ACL laptop, Machine Type Model: 80NA002MMX, with the newest BIOS firmware from Lenovo, in which I got a Linux distro installed to a partition.  My only problem is, the WiFi does not work, as there are no drivers available for this card on Linux systems. I tried as a last resort to use a program called "ndiswrapper" to install the windows driver in my Linux distro with the help from Linux professionals, sadly it did not work. Now my only chance is to purchase a new WiFi card compatible with Linux distros (not a USB WiFi plug), so my question is, where is that "whitelist" which Lenovo has implemented into the BIOS online? I have searched online, but I cannot find a list containing compatible cards. I see many users has purchased cards previously without being aware that Lenovo reject certain cards, and that is exactly what many users report, the card is rejected by the BIOS, and the users are left with a card they can not use. Before I order a new WiFi card, I want to make sure the card I order is compatible in my laptop. I came from the store I bought the pc today, and the techicians there were very surpised that Lenovo in fact had such a list in their BIOS, and they were not aware about it until I informed them. They told me that all they could do is to contact Lenovo directly by mail, so they recommended I did that myself, in which this forum post is all about. What WiFi cards are in the BIOS'...

Hey everyone. I am having trouble with my Multi-Card Reader/SD Card Reader. I am trying to take pictures off of my SD card and put them on my computer. I have lost my USB cord for the camera and can't locate it at this time or I would do that.

So anyway, I put the card in the SD card drive and the green light does not come on. I then open up My Computer and the drive isn't even listed. I checked in Device Manager as well and as far as I know, it is not listed in there either. If it is, then it is under a name that I don't recognize.

So anyway, I would greatly appreciate some help in getting my computer to recognize my Multi-Card Reader/SD Card Reader.

Also, I tried these things from my Standard Account.

Here's my system information:

New dv6-7000 laptop (Win7 64-bit) has a problem I can't seem to solve:  When using any SDHC memory card you cannot write or erase files to the card.  You can read the files just fine, but you get a "Write Protected" error when trying to write or erase.   The card is, of course, not write protected, and can be written to in several other laptop/desktop SD drives that I've tried.   And I've tried different brands/sizes of SDHC cards.  Smaller capacity regular SD cards work just fine.   I tried removing this device and rebooting to reinstall the hardware, but no help. The Realtek SD Driver shows as version 6.1.7600.16385 in Device Manager properties, dated 6/20/06.  HP's support site shows a newer driver version 6.1.7601.29005 dated 2/24/12.  When I download and run sp56166.exe to update the driver, it seems to go through the update process successfully. But the driver still shows as the older version in Device Manager.  And, of course, the problem still exists.  Any ideas would be much appreciated!  Hard to believe that a new dv6 laptop can't properly write or erase files from High Capacity SDHC memory cards.   Thank you!

A:dv6-7000 can't write to SDHC cards ("write protected" error)

I understand high capacity SD cards return the message they are write protected in your system.


I take it the write protect switch is in the off/disable position on the card since they work in other systems.


What is the product number?

NOTE: Do NOT provide the serial number.


What brand and model is the SDHC card?
