Thread: Onboard SD card reader wont read SDHC card

    Default Onboard SD card reader wont read SDHC card

    I recently bought a 8GB SDHC card but my it doesn't show up on my onboard SD card reader (NEC Versa E6000 laptop). I can go out and buy a SD card reader but if it was a simple case of updating the firmware, it would be preferable course of action.

    your onboard card reader is not SDHC compatible. i.e. it wont read anything above 4GB

    should be having to upgrade hardware instead of firmware.
    I think 4GB SD is already SDHC. I've yet to see a standard 4GB SD card. Largest I've come across is 2GB.

    Lots of people selling SDHC card readers on ebay. I bought a number for $2-$3 each. Works well.
    Exploring! :)

    I read about a hotfix downloadable from the windows site. But I wont even bother, I'll just go the card reader route. It's easier! Thanks fellas.

    Thanks guys, I'm looking for a multi card reader now. My laptop bought 2005 so i guess SDHC came out after that hehe. Still life in the old laptop yet so im not going to upgrade until i get CS5.

    I doubt a firmware can modify the existing card reader to read SDHC format.

    Transcend and some other makers used to make non SDHC 4GB cards before, that was when SDHC format was newly introduced and alot of Palm / window CE devices were not compatible with SDHC format yet. ( i was thinking of getting one previously with my old pocket pc phone. )
