Ultra II SD 2.0 GB is not being recognized on laptop or card reader

I have a Lexar Media USB 2.0 multi-card reader that works fine with both CF, a 1.0 GB Sandisk SD, and a 1.0 GB PNY SD card but will not recognize the Ultra II card. When clicking on the folder (drive) where the card should be the computer gives the hourglass and eventually times out when trying to open the Ultra II.
 
....so I tried using the Ultra II in the built in card reader on a laptop (HP Compaq nc6220) that is approx 2.5 yrs old and the computer does not recognize the card whatsoever. Again, it will recognize both 1.0 GB cards but nothing happens when the Ultra II is inserted.
 
Is there new drivers required to read these cards? Any other suggestions??
 
Thanks!!

does the 2GB card work in your camera or other device? if so your card readers are probably only compatible up to 1GB. this was common in older readers. (yes 2.5 years is old)
