I have a Gateway M360 notebook that has a built in card reader. I’ve never had any trouble using it before, but I’ve never tried using a large capacity memory card, either. My laptop is about 2 years old, and they weren’t around when my system was put together, I don’t think.
Anyway, I have a brand new SanDisk 2 GB SD memory card but my computer won’t read it. I’ve been through online chat TWICE with Gateway about it, but I keep losing connection with their support server, so that’s of no help. They had me download a new driver, which I did. When I installed it, the device was SEEN, but said it was not formatted. When I tried to format it, it failed using the FAT 32 way. I did successfully format it the other way, took some pictures, then put the card back in. It read, but it was all symbols and gibberish.
I uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers but now when I try to right click the device or do anything, it just freezes up the My Computer screen on me.
SanDisc is closed for the holiday and Gateway is about useless unless I spend another hour trying to chat with them. Any suggestions or ideas? It seems so easy, but it’s just not working. So frustrating!
