Secure Digital 2GB Picture Card

I have a 2GB Sandisk SD (secure digital) picture card that my laptop won't read.  It will read my 1GB card, but not the 2GB.  My laptop has a built in card reader.  When I insert the 1GB card it brings up the dialog box to transfer the pictures from the card to a directory on my computer, but the 2GB card doesn't seem to work at all.

Most likely your card reader is not compatible with your new card.  Some of the newer, faster, high-capacity cards are incompatible with older card readers...  YOu may be able to get a bios or driver  update for your laptop that will allow you to read the card, but you'll have to check the manufacturer's web site to see if they're available.

It's also possible your card is faulty. Try putting your card into something else and see if that will read it.

I had a similar situation.  2gb SD card and a Gateway 465 series laptop.  Will not see the SD card.  Had to buy an external reader to address the problem.

I spoke to Gateway and they told me that I was not the first to bring this up, but their fix would be in the next series of laptops.

Best bet is to pick yourself up an external reader, if the manufacture does not have a driver update or patch.
