SDHC card

My computers won't read my Sandisk 8 GiG SDHC card. I'm using a card reader inserted into USB 2.0. Both computers are P4's with XP pro with service pack 3 and Ubuntu 9.10 as OS's. I've also tried the card slot on my HP printer. Any suggestions ????

Relic,
You probably need to find a card reader that is not a RELIC! A lot of the older ones won't read more than a 2 or maybe a 4 gb card.  I am not 100% sure but I think that this is likely.

Ok my card reader is pretty old, BUT my printer is less than a year old. I'll check into a new card reader. I do find it hard to believe all of you came up with the same answer.  Thanks

My Sony computer was equiped with a slot to read Memory Sticks and worked well until I got another camera that used newer versions of Memory Sticks.  I was able to get an updated driver from Sony so that it now works with the new versions as well.  The new versions require an adapter as they are a different physical form.

I still haven't been able to access my sandisk 8 gig sd card. I have a new ASUS netbook with an SD slot that won't read it either. I read online that if you have a camera that reads these sdhc cards; you can reformat it and that might work. My camera won't read it.

Relic,

Check and see if there's a firmware update for your card reader.  I understand that only HC SD readers can read SDHC.  Haven't verified that myself but the fact that your reader, printer, and camera ALL fail to read this card suggests that there is some incompatibility, or that the card is either physically/electrically defective or its formatting got buggered along the way.

Relic,
It is possible that you just got a bad card. Sandisk is a very popular brand but that doesn't mean it isn't bad from the start.  Has it ever been used before?  I just sent you an email direct from my Juno account about how my ASUS works okay with XP reading both a 4 gb and a 16 gb in My Computer without any problem at all.

I will bring my netbook to the Internet sig meeting tomorrow night, Tues the 16th. If you are coming, bring the SD card with you.

Thanks to Don Koepf, I got my SD card reader to work on my network. He suggusted that on ASUS website there were some  bios updates. I checked and one was for the SD reader. Now I know my 8 gig  card is good.
