The PCMCIA SD card reader I use on my laptop reads 512 and 256K cards just fine, but it will not recognize a 1GB card of the same brand (kingmax) as the others.

It does see the card if I use a USB card reader. ANyh ideas why the PCMCIA card (CompUSA brand) will not see 1GB?

It's not unusual to see compatibility problems from time to time between memory cards, readers and cameras.

The reader may have been designed prior to 1GB cards becoming available. Or, it may be that the card itself is just incompatible and it has nothing to do with it's size.
