My SDHC card won't read in my laptop card slot.

  blackpat 09:31 08 Apr 2016

When I put my SDHC sandisk card in my laptop slot marked (SD/MMC-MS/PRO) it doesn't read it. My partner has a similar laptop with the same slot as mine and the SDHC card reads in hers perfectly. Any Ideas?

have a read here certain high speed cards will not read in the earlier card readers. SDHC card readers

blackpat, hssutton is probably right - your laptop can't read the newer high-capacity SD cards. All is not lost though as you can buy a USB3 SDHC card dreader for just a few quid.

Thanks a lot both. I have a usb reader that reads my SDHC card perfectly. I was just wondering why my laptop slot wouldn't read it. What puzzles me is that my partner and I both have Dell inspiron Laptops, hers is slightly older than mine and we both have SD/MMC-MS/PRO on the laptop slot and my card will read on hers but not mine. Thanks again both for your time. Regards Blackpat.

Can your laptop read regular SD cards OK? If it can't then perhaps the reader is faulty. If it can then my hunch is probably correct.

I see your point though about your laptops being similar.

I tried 2 ordinary SD cards and they don't work either. Like you, I think I've got a faulty reader. No big deal, because as I said, I can use the usb reader. Just nice to know. Many thanks SS for all your help. Regards Blackpat.
