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 card slot problem

This is most generally a driver issue. Go to HP's support site and download the proper driver. It's more than likely a utilities driver.

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.

SOURCE: SD card does not seem to fit in the SD card slot

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.

Says sd card error


Are you sure it's an SD card? Even though SDHC cards will also fit into the slot, they will not work in the A540. If the card is larger than 2GB then it will not work.

SD slot won't read card


I had the same problem. You have to buy the specific card for that SD slot and it has to be an original one. Mine worked with the Micro SD 4gb.

Why my 4GB SDcard can not work at my NIKON coolpix 5900


There are no 4GB SD cards. "SD" cards larger than about 1GB are actually SDHC cards. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

Why cant I download my waypoint data to a 2 GB SD card. My Global map 5000c does not recognise the 2GB SD card. Do I need MMC/SD. Can I place the sd card in the slot beside the chart card ?. Thanks


You can place the SD card into the slot beside the chart card.

With the SD card in the GlobalMap unit by itself (take the chart card out), press MENU twice and choose BROWSE FILES. Does the unit indicate that an SD card is present? If yes, the card is working fine in that slot. Try the same thing in the other slot. If it only recognizes the SD card in one of the slots, the other slot is bad and probably won't work with any card. If the card is recognized in the BROWSE FILES menu, but the data that is on the card is not working, there could be compatibility issues with the data and the GlobalMap 5000.

Make sure the GlobalMap 5000 has the latest software update from http://www.lowrance.com/en/Products/Legacy-Products/GlobalMap-5000C/Downloads/GlobalMap-5000C-Software-Update-180/. You might need to get a different, smaller capacity card since your 2GB is not working.

If the 2GB SD card still isn't recognized in the BROWSE FILES menu after the update, the GlobalMap 5000 is not going to work with that 2GB card. You will want to get a different card. I suggest 1GB and smaller.

If this doesn't help, please let me know some more details. Is the 2GB SD card recognized in the BROWSE FILES menu. What are you seeing that makes you determine it does not recognize this card? What files are currently on this card? What kind of card is it (brand, model).

How does the 5 in 1 card reader work on the Acer Aspire 5920 laptop? I am not sure how to get the SD card into this slot. Thanks


There should be 5 slots. Near each slot has the trademark of the card that the slot is for. If you are unable to identify the trademarks or there aren't any ways of finding which slot is which, then try each slot. Do not force your SD card into the slot. There should be only one slot that is the perfect fit for the SD card. Just slightly change the angle of the SD card until it slides in. The SD card has little to no extra room so it will take a little while to get the SD card in. Also the slot is spring loaded so you should here a click when it is in correctly.

If you have trouble, just keep trying and don't force it in. Trust me that it will fit if it is the right slot. Sometimes I get my SD card into my Wii or laptop in under a minute and sometime I have to mess with it for over 5 minutes (the angle of the stand for the Wii doesn't help at all).

Once you get the SD card in correctly, it will show up as a drive in "My Computer" but Windows XP and Vista have normal alerts with a "new hardware found" tone. Think of it as an USB flash drive that is smaller and goes into a specific slot.

When you are done, just push the SD card in and the slot should eject the card so you can pull it out.

Good luck and I hope you get it in.

SD card slot -


The slot is for multiple card formats, usually SD/CF/xD/MMC etc...

Look at it closely you should see different contact points inside, your sd card should slip into one of the slots inside the larger slot.

BUT!!! Some user guides are printed for entire families of notebooks and mention all the available options for that type of notebook. Your laptop might not have come with an SD card slot at all even if it is mentioned in the book.
