HI, I have a Compaq Presario X6000 and I'm attempting to download pictures from my PNY Technologies 2.0 GB SD Card, but my laptop won't recognize it. Any ideas on getting it to work properly? Thanks, Juan

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I believe that the 6-in-1 media reader that you have installed in this notebook does not support a 2 GB media. I think it tops out at 1 GB. Can you read media of 1 GB or less on your notebook? Can this card be read in some other reader?
I had customer with HP/Compaq notebook with same problem and after numerous phone calles (we could not find any reference on HP website nor in their service manuals), we found the problem – max card size support is 1 GB.

    Also check into BIOS updates for your computer and any possibly related driver version issues. I've seen memory that was either unreadable, or showed up with the wrong size, and after a BIOS update, everything worked - so worth looking into. Bob
