Found 14th May 2008
Going abroad on saturday, so I purchased two 4gb sdhc cards for my Samsung S630 (sdhc compatible) got them through the post this morning when I put one of them in my camera, my camera said it could make 29 minutes worth of video (same as my sandisk 2gb) so I try to make a video on a lower res. to see what it'd look like, now my vostro 1000 is not picking up these cards, either of them. Again my sandisk works fine.

Anyone got any suggestions?

Thanks - Zak.

Did you format them in your computer?

if his computer doesnt recognise then how is he going to format them? does your vostro have a card slot capable of reading SDHC cards, you might need to get a new card reader

Like guerilla said, theres no way of formatting them. I'm not sure if my Vostro reader is sdhc compatible. Even if it isnt, the problem I'm having is it's telling me it'll record for half the time that it supposed to.

If you have the package with the USB card reader your computer will read it... and btw, your Vostro should be ok with SDHC anyway. My 1500 was

Maximum of 29 minutes video per video perhaps? Have you tried recording a few minutes and check how much you can on the next - easy to see if it's being 'used' up...

A quick look around and it looked as though MS released a patch for cards "over" 4GB.. so I thought what the hell I'll give it a go... sure enough after that Windows could see the card.Inspiron 1501 = Vostro 1000



Would you be able to give me a link to this patch please?

Zak.

Yay! I love it when I'm right - too long in technical support!
