    My laptop has one of them built-in slots for SD, and other assorted memory cards. It's a great thing. Since my camera uses SD cards. But there is a problem. Now it seems to be dead when I put a card in. Never reacts or recognizes it.


    Only way I can transfer pics is hook the camera to a USB cable now. Any ideas what might make it not work? And better yet, start working again?

    Are you putting the card in with your right hand or your left hand?

    ETA: It might have a spider in it.

    1) The slot is on the left, so usually the left.

    2) I'm not looking in there!!!!!

    That's your problem. You got a ****ing left handed one.

    Spray some Raid Wasp and Hornet killer in there and then jam a screwdriver around in it to finish the bastard off.

    Right-click your My Computer icon and choose Manage.
    Click on the Device Manager and look for any devices with a yellow ? mark next to it.

    The driver for that device might have become corrupt.

    Are you using a Card that is bigger than 2GB, If the slot isn't rated for SDHC once the SD card gets more than 2GB of data it won't read it. You may have to buy a card reader that will detect and read a SDHC card if this is the case..

    Mine does the same thing sometimes. I can't figure it out. I think it is Vista though, usually a reboot will fix it, but not all the time. It only seems to do it on the SD cards though, my phone uses an SD, but my Camera uses xD and it's only not worked once.

    Try the reboot, otherwise looks like you are using the cable.

    The SD card reader on my laptop requires me to hold the card pushed in anytime I want to use it. Not very convenient.

    Go here:
    http://belarc.com/free_download.html

    This program will tell you EXACTLY what your hardware specs are on your personal machine. Find out what kind of SD card reader you have and Google it to find out what its gb limits are. If your card is bigger than what it will take, it won't recognize it.

    The biggest cards I have are 2 Gig regular cards.

    It is not recognizing any of them.

    16 Meg MMC {I think. The non-locking card like a SD}
    256 Meg SD
    512 Meg SD
    Several 2 Gig SDs

    I'll try that. But it is rejecting all sized cards.

    Go into the system bios and turn that onboard device off, boot up then shutdown again and go back into the bios and turn it back on and boot up again. Sometimes they glitch out on you.

    Reminds me of the guy on ARFCOM who got a little drunk while he was sick. Put a nice 9mm-ish hole in his laptop screen.....

    Ok Pat your head and rub your belly while standing on one leg. Chanting oooooommmmmm, oooooommmmmm. Then reinsert the card. This should do the trick.
