    I'm on a Windows Vista laptop with an inbuilt SD card slot. The slot used to work but now, when I put it into the slot, it wont register at all until I pull it out. When it does this, on the "my computer" window, it shows a folder named "SD card" before it disappears again. I have tryed taking it out more slowly but I still can't get it to register. Help?
    (No complicated tech lanuage,please! I'm a novice!)

    He is saying he puts the card in and nothing shows up.. taking the card out the stick appears momentarily. Maybe the slot needs to be replaced. Have you got a second sd card to test in the slot? Do you use the card in a digital camera or similar device and it works?

    I have many SD cards, all of which have the same problem. They all work perfectly well in digital cameras and any other computer or laptop that I have tried them in.
