SDHC (4GB) SD card. Computer does not recognize card?
Nov 19, 2008

I have a SanDisk 4GB SDHC card that seems to work fine in my LX3 but for some reason my laptop doesn't detect it when I plug it into my card reader slot. My other cards, up to 2 GBs are detected and then XP gives me auto play where I can choose what I want to do with the pictures. The 4 GB SDHC card works perfectly in the camera. Records pictures, plays back and I have formatted it twice in camera but, when I put it in the SD card reader slot nothing happens. It is not recognized. I expect there is a work around - another card reader with a USB connection etc... but my question is: is it the card or is it that the reader slot doesn't recognize the SDHC format??? My HP laptop is almost two years old and I thought it should support the SDHC format. Have others had this problem? Thanks for any help.
