computer won't read SD card "card not formatted"
Nov 22, 2006

I bought a cheap 2gb SD card (A-Data) for $50 today. I have one in my other camera and I've used it for over a year and it works fine, but when I put it into my SD slot on my computer it doesn't read it. If I try to look at it in the explorer the files don't show up and it says "card not formatted". But if I plug my camera into my computer with the card in it then I can transfer the images off just fine. I have a smaller SD card (512mb) that I use in the same camera and my computer will read the files off of that one just fine. It's a SanDisk card though. Does anyone else see this in their experience? I was wondering if it has something to do with the large card capacity or if its just because its a cheaper brand card that it won't work. Strange.
