What operating systems are you using? You may need a driver to recognise the card.

Firstly, I'm not sure what a "Texas" sd card slot is. Is it built into the laptop?

However, it may be that the device doesn't recognise 1 GByte cards. It may need a firmware update.

I think Texas is a generic driver that is used for a few external plugins.

Could try searching for a up to date driver.

Failing that a card reader may do the trick

As you use XP you won't need a driver for a card reader.

FelixTCat's suggestion is probably the answer as sometimes cards with a higher capacity than (usually) 512MB cannot be read.
