Today I purchased two 2gb SD cards from SanDisk. A few hours later I tried to use them with internal card readers in both my desktop and laptop. For some crazy reason the desktop's drive reads for about a minute and gives an error saying to insert the card. Then I tried in my laptop, which is running Vista, and it gave me an I/O device error. I thought how strange since the card readers read my older Dane-Elec 1gb card and a micro SD adapter from Motorola.
Now its definitely not the new cards because both cards are being picked up by both my camera and printer. It's just a pain to have to plug in my camera or turn on my printer just to upload the files from the cards.
I'm just curious, could there be an issue between the hardware and brand of card?
My desktop is a Sony Vaio VGC-RA820G running XP.
Laptop is also a Sony Vaio VGN-FZ180E running Vista.
