    Computer does not recognize SDHC card

    My son just bought me a new digital camera. I am using a 4GB SDHC card. I don't remember what my old camera used as I didn't bring it to Florida. But, when I inserted the old card in the memory card slot of my laptop, it gave me the Auto Play options from which to choose and it recognized the new hardware. When I put this new SDHC in nothing happens. It does not show up as a new drive, no options pop up and the "Found New Hardware" icon doesn't show up.

    Any ideas????

    Re: Computer does not recognize SDHC card

    Thanks Rob. I downloaded and installed the driver you listed for XP but nothing has changed. Computer still doesn't see the card. Maybe I did it wrong. I didn't download directly from the site, I saved it first and then double clicked to run and install the driver. I like to save and date everything I download onto my computer. Would that have caused the problem?

    Thanks.

    Went to HP and put in my model which is Pavilion zd8000 and I put in the search box "SDHC driver". Came up with this page:

    but I don't want to download anything else without some advice.

    Thanks.

    June,

    I have never had an issue with drivers I have downloaded from HP's website (EXCEPT they use that SPnnnnnn designation which 3 days later means absolutely nothing to me ).

    What I do is save the download with a different name - the name of an executable is not always exclusive (except when an autorun file looks for the specific name). This file doesn't meet that test - since it is an extraction file to create the setup process to install the updated driver.

    you will need a dedicated SDHC card reader, they are cheap enough.
    standard SD slots/card readers will not detect and read SDHC cards no matter what you do with regards drivers.

    Re: Computer does not recognize SDHC card

    Thanks all for your help and ideas. I tried several times to download a driver so my computer could read the SDHC card to no avail. So I'm assuming Anon is correct. I purchased a card reader and was able to download the pictures from the card onto my computer.

    I'm glad you were you were able to make contact with your camera memory card. I was amazed at how inexpensive and easy to use these standalone card readers are. We got one for my wife's camera and had it up and running in no time.
