    Jayda12 asked a question a while back.... I read with baited breath for the answer..... Still waiting.

    I'm new to the SD card world. I'm trying to transfer pix from my phone. My computer has the slot. I put in the tiniest card w/the pix into the adapter and inserted into my SD port of computer. It found new hardware, etc, so I click on the new "SD Disk E:" under "My Computer"
    I get the error message, "Please insert a disk into drive E:"

    Ugh.... Help! :confused:

    BTW... "UncleGooey" is because my little niece couldn't say "Uncle Gary." :p

    Meh, only thing I can suggest is has the disk been formatted with FAT/FAT32? Perhaps your phone has formatted the disk with a type of format that windows can't read, but I doubt it. You could try other disks to see if it's a fault with the slot or shell card you are using

    Those are some great ideas -- Thanks, fenderjaguar!
    In the meantime, a friend had a different type of card reader (MobileMate SD+ by SanDisk) that plugged into USB. It worked with no prob, perhaps confirming your suspicion that my phone was NOT fighting against Windows.
    Anyway, the pix are transferred, and my world is at rest once again. (Don't you wish it were that easy with the rest of the world?)
