These 8GB cards are called SDHC (see google for the long name) and what you have may only support SD cards. SD cards are usually 2GB and under.
The common workaround for the card reader is another card reader. There are also limitations to Windows 98 with these cards so I can't tell if that applies.
XP didn't support this either. Read http://support.microsoft.com/kb/944345
If your computer and reader does support the 8GB SDHC you may need to format the card. Here's how -> http://www.sdcard.org/consumers/formatter/
"SD or SDHC memory card file systems formatted with generic operating system formatting software do not comply with official SD memory card requirements and optimum performance may not be experienced."
This is why we use the sdcard.org tool on these old machines.
Hi there, I got a 8GB memory card(gift) from a friend but it's just not working. When I tried to insert into the card reader and connect to the computer, the new device/ drive just never shown.... When I insert it into my digital camera, it shows memory card error...
May I know what's going on? Thanks!
