Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook
Also check if the SD card reader is enabled in the computers BIOS
Posted on Jun 12, 2009
Check on the manufacturer's website, and check your SD card, I've heard of some SD card readers on laptops not being able to read High-Capacity SD cards. One way you can test, is go down to your local supermarket and just buy a small, el-cheapo SD card and plug it into the computer and see if it reads. If it does, then chances are pretty good the SD card you were originally trying to use, is a HC-SD Card, and your computer does not support them. If that is the case, you can usually buy a USB adapter (average prices are $10-20 USD) to stick the SD card into, and then plug it in via US and transfer pictures to/from that way. If the cheapo SD card doesn't work though, then you may have a problem with the card reader on the laptop itself, and should probably seek assistance from an authorized service provider, or contact Dell directly, if you computer is still under warranty.

SOURCE: SD Slot doesn't work
If the SD card is a high capacity card (SDHC) the SD slot may not be capable of recognizing it. Suggest to try another SD card. If that still doesn't work find the drivers on your laptop manufacturers website.

Is the SD card a mini type or a standard SD card?
The standard SD card is 24mm wide X 32mm long.
If it is a mini SD card you need to purchase a mini SD to standard SD adapter, then you will be able to insert it in your Compaq.
