    I have a 4 gig Kingston HC SD card that I use in my camera. However, neither of my 2 computers, Dell Demension E521 running Windows XP SP2 nor my Acer laptop running Windows XP Pro nor 2 computers belonging to 2 of my friends, will recognized the card.

    The card records photos just fine and I can download them to my computer via USB connection.

    All of the above computers will recognize cards of 2 gig or less capacity.

    I purchased another 4 gig SD card manufactured by Sandisk but it, too, was not recognized by the above computers.

    What is wrong ?? Is there some software switch that I must activate ??

    Thank You, Gary

    You are probably running into a size limitation in your older computer card readers. Confirm the specs of the readers on your systems to see if that is true or not.

    I had to buy a newer card reader that would pick up my 4GB SD card, whereas my older
    card readers wouldn't.
