can a sandisk reader read a non sandisk memory card

hi all

i realize this is probably an ultra basic question, but here goes - i just bought a panasonic memory card, for my panasonic camera and it appears my san disk reader won’t read I insert it and nothing shows up on my computer, despite disconnecting and reconnecting the reader

wil a sandisk reader read only a sandisk memory card? if not, what other brands will it read

thanks for your help

The brand of reader should not matter. What might matter however, is if the reader is only SD compliant (<2GB) and the card you’re putting in it is SDHC format (>2GB). Not all card readers will read the SDHC format.

Luckily card readers are cheap; here’s one for $.01 (+ $2.98 shipping). :smiley:
