Windows XP updated to sp3 will not recognize SDHC media cards

    Question

  • I cannot get my computer to recognize SDHC (4gb) media cards (tried using two different readers, both of which work on a different PC.) after reformatting hard drive and reinstall of Windows XP that I fully updated to SP3 before trying to use media card (this compter and reader could read the SDHC cards before). When I try to install hotfix 923293 it says it for an older version (SP2)

All replies

    1. What is the OS on the other PC where the 2 readers work?
    2. Have you installed the newest driver for the reader you are trying?
    3. Is the driver for Windows XP?
    4. Can you see the reader in your Device Manager?
    5. If yes to #4, does it show up with an error in the Device Manager?
    6. Will it read smaller capacity media cards?
