Sd Disk

Lost in LOS

Recommended Posts

My SD disk from my camera is not being recognized on my laptop. for the past 3 years when i plug it into the SD slot on the laptop the computer recognized it automatically and I was good to go. Last week it no longer recognizes it nor any other SD disk when i slip it into the computer slot, so its not the particular disk, but the computer. I cant find how to make the computer recognize the SD disk again. I have xp operating system and when opening my computer now, with a disk inserted, it doesn't show anything where before an icon with "removable disk" came up

any help would be appreciated

There are USB adaptors available for 100b or so.

They take an SD card in one side and plug in to a USB port on the other.

Might work, will work if that computer port is the culprit.

Worth a try.

Good luck and let us know what solution finally works.

Agree with post above - I have an SD slot on one of my computers - generally reads the SD card ok - but on occasion it has not - before reformatting the card (and loosing pictures etc.) I tried a multi-format USB card reader/adaptor unit. This allowed me to recover the pictures, then format the SD card etc.

They are very cheap now - worth getting a hand full of SD cards as spares and carry them with you.

(Also a spare battery doesn't hurt.)
