camera card readers limitation

By alloy ·
Have had problems reading SD cards on slot on my PC... so acquired an external USB multitype card reader which copes with most SD cards .. but I now have a 2gb card wgich sometimes is read succesfully and sometimes only reads some of the files.
I have read that there is a capacity limit on these card readers (I presume a buffer limitation?) can any one offer any information and how to download from the higher capacity cards that are now in use?

Dedicated reader

by TheChas In reply to camera card readers limit ...

I recommend that you pick up a dedicated SD card reader. I have had a number of issues with several different "multi-card" readers.

Another soft spot can be the USB port itself. I find that some of the cheaper USB cards just don't work as well as the name brand cards do.

Try updating drivers

I had the same problem with the card reader port reading high capacity cards on my Sony laptop, updating the card reader drivers (& applying a registry patch) fixed the problem. Have you looked for updates for your card reader? Check the website for your PC manufacturer...
