I am trying to find a fix for an HP Pavilion a705w system built in card reader. It connects to a usb port internally.

It will read XD cards from an OLympus camera no problems.
A XD m+ 2gb card does not work. I get an error about formatting it and the format screen only gives 978mb as the option.

The win xp drivers for the card reader are up to date.

Does anyone know how to get this working ?

XD cards have the same problem as SD/SDHC in that newer hicap/highspeed cards often don't work on older readers. You might find a USB reader to read the new cards, but XD is a dead format and it might be tougher to find a reafer for it vs SD.

Hi

Dpunisher is right. Is it possible to put it in the camera and connect the camera to the computer. I've had good results doing this in similar situations especially when doing recoveries of damaged cards that don't show up in a standard card reader.

Thanks for the replies.

I borrowed a card reader to try and it worked no problems.

I was hoping for an updated driver but the new reader should not be that expensive.
