no
it does with all my other cards though?

Go to start >> Computer >> and double click the last drive (removable disk) in the list ( disk k ? ) this should bring it up. If it's not this one try the others

also try removing the card reader from the comp' & take the sd card out of the reader & insert it back in again !
Sometimes this works!

done that loads of times already?

Have you got a USB Micro SD reader that might have come with the M3.


If you are using a Micro SD> SD adaptor, that may be the problem.

My card reader in my computer won't read 8GB cards, but works fine with anything smaller

I was just about to say similar I sometimes have trouble with 4gb cards & certain card readers? when 1gb + 2gb seem to always work fine .....

It sounds as if the card reader itself might be faulty?
Could you try it on a friends comp'?

It would usually look something like this M3 card on left, USB reader on right:

Have you got another sd card to try in it?
Then you'll know if it's the card or the reader

Tell them how to check "Mr logic", and what they do if it isn't, and what do they do if it is.

My card reader does not say it is SDHC compatible, yet reads 4GB SDHC cards.
I tried to update my drivers, and I get a message that I have the latest ones installed.

That leaves taking my PC apart and replacing the card reader or getting a USB one.

I advised the OP to do what I did, and get a USB one.
