SD card reads in camera, but not with her Mac Book Pro!

My daughter has a Canon T3i and a Mac Book Pro.  Her computer does not read her SD card, but does work in her camera.  Brought into Apple store where the computer read other SD cards, but not hers.  Anyone have an idea what is going on? Different types of SD cards?

thanks

did you bring the SD card into Apple and see if other computers could read it?

Check to see if it's an SDXC card. If it is and your MacBook is older than 2011, that's why. Apple added SDXC support in 2011.
