Hello there i have a dell 5150 pentium 4, windows XP SP3 desktop. I have an internal card reader, and i purchased two 4gb cards, 1 is SD and 1 is Micro SD, from play.com. My pc does not seem to read/see the sd cards, but i also have 1gb sd cards, and they are fine. i have an external card reader, and same problem. i keep getting something about I/0 disk error message.

I have read somewhere that some pcs dont recognize any mem cards more then 1gb..is this true?? And if so, is there ANY way to solve this update drivers etc. I have an 8MP camera and thats why i bought this SD card. Is there a particulaer type of external card reader that will work with this please......or just ANY solutions so my PC can recognize the 4gb sd card please. Once again the 1gb cards are fine, tis the 4gb that r the problem, thanks

If you google for exactly this

4GB sd card readers

you'll find some possible fixes, and some reasons why it might never work.
