8 GB SDHC card not being read by mini, 2GB works fine - 01-22-2009, 08:00 PM
Sorry if this has been covered, I can't figure out how to search just the Mac OS X section (or really search at all) on this website.
I got this card in the mail today. http://www.meritline.com/pqi-8gb-sdhc-card-class-6.html
My mac OS X mini won't read the card at all. I know the card works because it works in my wife's camera. I know the mini will read cards as our 2 GB ultra II is read just fine.
Any ideas on why the mini won't read this card? Has anyone else had this problem with SDHC cards? Is there a fix on here? (step by step works best for me as I am admittedly not as computer literate as a lot of you guys here :lol: )

There should not be any problems with that card. :?: This was fixed a while back. What version of install are you using with your machine? If it is Type11, which version number? Depending on what I just asked, if you are running with Type11 and at least his last few versions, it should work. You can also take a look at this thread over here.

If the card is unformatted, you can stick it in the slot, and fire up disk utility to put a partition on it.

Sorry i took forever to do this, but her Vista Home Premium PC reads the SDHC card just fine.
I formatted the card from that PC as FAT (might have been 32, cant remember) but it still isn't read by the mini with OSX.
Ive even reinstalled OSX since my initial trouble with the card and I still have the same problem.
I have also noticed that the card sometimes pops up in Disk Utility for a split second or so after I eject it (physically of course, the dell doesn't even acknowledge it until then).
Other times when I plug it in the mouse no longer responds until I eject the card.
Not sure what it could be the cause, and unfortunately I don't have any other cards to test with (SD or SDHC)
