Re: Comp. wont read micro sd adapter

Hello all,


I guess I have a similar problem.


I have, just bought, a 4 gB micro SDHC card with an SD adaptor.

I intend to use the micro SDHCcard with my phone, and there is no problem with it. the phone reads the card.


However, I need my computer read the micro SDHC thru the SD Adaptor, unfortunately it doesnt read the micro SDHC card. I have also a 1 gB micro SD card and SD Adaptor, there is no problem with that...


So, what do you think?

Can a microSDHC - USB adaptor solve the problem?


my computer: fujitsu Siemens with XP and HP Pavillion (wife's PC, same problem, no reading)

micro SD: Sandisk 1 gB

Micro SD HC : Sandisk 4 gB

I have a SD Slot on the computer, I use the microSD/SDHC with the SD Adaptor.


Thanks in advance

Re: Comp. wont read micro sd adapter

I'm having the same problem. I tried the micro sd adapter on my laptop (e-machine m6811) and desktop (compac presario 3500 media center).

I get the "Added hardware" tone but it doesn't appear anywhere.  I've even tried adding the Microsoft hotfix #923293  (from previous post)

However that hotfix is for 32x bit systems whereas both of mine are Athlon 64x bit. with windows XP pro sp2.

Does anyone know of a hotfix thats compatable with 64x bit systems?

                                                                                                                         Thanks in advance

Although I seriously doubt that any Sandizk employees will read this, I feel it is my duty to other consumers to scrag them on the forums and consumer ratings sites; I have some experience with this.

I received the SanDisk set of a 4 GB MicroSD HC card and its concomitant adapter as a Christmas Present from my brother for my LG Voyager VX10000 phone.  As far as I can tell, it works well with the phone.

However, when I insert the combination of the Adapter and the MicroSD card into my computer, as demonstrated on the horrible, my Windows XP Pro. operating system failed to recognize it as a Mass Storage device. 

I would post a picture, but with the malfunctioning card, my chief means of doing so.
The Windows drivers for this are like "plug-and-pray".  However, it works well with my phone.  Since Windows is only the most popular OS out there, I have to say that this manufacturer needs to get its act together.


It works on Linux perfectly, though, and I do not use my Windows side that often.

Re: Comp. wont read micro sd adapter

I bought the exact same thing as alpman.  I called SanDisk, Microsoft, and my computer's manufacturer.  Now, I have Vista and they told me to upgrade my system to see if that solves the problem, but I'm not going to pay $100 for something that might work.  I also don't want to pay for a USB adapter because I just bought a memory card with an adapter.  I also have a smaller memory card (512 MB) that reads fine in my computer.  Call your manufacturer and see what they have to say.  Maybe you'll get an answer.

Dear all


I solved my problem by installing TIPCI drivers from Texas Instruments from this FTP site Zepto it's the manufactor of my computer. I'm runing Vista by the way. One other thing I have only tried with Micro SD <1 Gb.


Perhaps this information can help someone!

My Solution

I had the same problem.


The problem is the ADAPTER.


STEP 1. Take OUT the Adapter from the MobilMate SD+ Reader and REMOVE the minicard from the adapter.


STEP 2. Place the minicard directly into the smaller slot in your MobileMate SD+ 


STEP 3. Place the MobileMate SD+ into the usb port. Your computer should be able to detect and read all files.T


Hope this helps. :smileyhappy:
