    Default Help: My PC/Laptop cannot read my Sandisk ULTRA CF

    Hi All,

    Tested using 2 card readers already, but none of them are able to read my Ultra2/Extreme in my PC and Laptop (it is able to read my trancend 45x though). I always need to use my Camera cable to transfer the images.

    Tested the same card reader in other PC and it works wonder with my Ultra 2/Extreme card ...

    Any ideas? Just FYI my PC is WinXP and the error message that I receive is "the card is not formatted ...."

    Thanks!

    Always reformat the CF efore use. And the point is it read-able with the same CF reader in different computer. So I kinda suspect that it has something to do with my PC.

    Try the following:

    + Update your Windows XP to at least Service Pack 1
    + Make sure antivirus program is not interferring with your card reader

    I am using all-in-one reader as well as USB1.1 CF reader and no problem with my CF card, though I am using the Lexar WA 80X 2 GB card...

    Hope the above helps.
