    macbook pro sd card reader not recognizing sd card
    hi all,
    i have a sd card of 8g its a sdhc sandisk card and my macbook pro 13" 09 does not recognize it. i dont have any other sd cards so i cant be sure that it works with other cards but i dont see a reason why it should be a hardware problem, i take really good care of my computer.
    so i think it's a compatabily issue and i was hoping that there is some kind of firmware upgrade or driver upgrade to make my sd card reader work with newer sd cards.

    thanks
    ran

    Not sure what you have on the card but mine takes my photos with no problem. Are you
    importing or exporting and is music,photos or files.

    I have the Sandisk 2g card that I use with a Nikon D80 and its worked great for the camera and the 09 MBP with iLife 09 which yours should have came with also just a thought are you using 10.6.4 and what camera are you using.

    Try re-format it. I have a HP 4 gb USB drive that my MBP would not recognized. Somehow it just doesn't take the factory formatting. It worked after I re-format under the same FAT32. You might want to do the same with your SDHC card.
