New SD Flash Memory

By tja081960

  1. I recently purchased two different 4 GB SD Memory cards and when I put them into either my computer or my palm pilot, the computer says no card inserted as well as the palm. What the heck am I doing wrong? If I take a card that I have in my digital camera and put in my palm or my computer they are opened just fine. Help, I am not sure what to do next.

    What can I do?

    What can I do about it? Can I get some sort of software or do I just use only 2GB and smaller SD cards? BTW Thank you for your response.

    its more to do with hardware capabilities most of the time, unless the manufacturer has upgradeable firmware for the reader/device.

    you confuse me.. so your camera works with the card, but your PC or palm doesn't read it? If you want to read it on the PC, then you can get a SDHC>USB adaptor (or similar device with support) and then you can read it. The palm however probably won't still work with the card..
