|I bought a new 4GB Mini SD memory card for my phone. I put it in the card reader on my computer, the green light came on, but it didn't automatically open (it never does, with any kind of card), so I started checking the several "Removable Disc" icons to find it. Clicking an icon just sent the cursor into hourglass wait mode. I removed the disc, and the hourglass disappeared and the computer told me to insert a disc, etc. I tried a Smart Media card in it's slot, and it worked fine. A little research told me that card readers, and especially their cables, go bad. So I bought a refurbished reader (it came with a cable) and installed it. Inserted the SD card- same problem exactly as before. |
I checked the card reader process, and it seems to be running automatically and normally. I tried updating drivers, but there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the one I have and no updates are available on the HP website. I also tried to find info re: maximum memory card capacity, but the HP didn't specify a maximum, and 4GB isn't that much anyway.
Does anyone have any other suggestions? Thanks.
