Hardware :: Desperately Need Memory Card To Mount To Mac
Mar 19, 2008
I went on vacation and tried to download images from my memory card onto my PC which has an integrated memory card reader. Unfortunately my PC froze for a few and when it finally came to (Believe it or not) I tried to cancel the automatic file transfer. When I did this I waited for the all clear to remove my memory card, but when I put it back into my PC it would not recognize it. It just kept giving me three consecutive pings. I tried to put the card back into the camera (Sony DSC Series), but when I turned the camera on, it gave me an error (Failure to read memory card). In doing research I was told that if I bought a card reader and hooked it up to my iMac, I would possibly be able to read the raw data and retrieve the images from it that way.
Well, The memory card reader works ( I tried it with a different Sony memory card), but does not even recognize that my card is even in it. Even disk utility does not see it. Anyway, as a man trying to salvage some dignity from his female companion, I told her not to worry, I would do my best to get the images off the card. I don't however want to spend an outrageous amount of money to do it. I have pretty good luck with Google and other searches, but I am starting to believe that I am the only person in the universe who can't seem to get my Mac to see the card. Is it possible to get the images off of the card? Is it possible to do it without spend an arm and a leg? Photo Rescue does not work and neither does Stellar Phoenix. If I could get my Mac to see the card that might be a different story.
This morning, I had to print off some pictures from my digital camera for my art class, so I stuck my memory card (1 GB) into the slot, and it worked just fine. The other day, I plugged my LG Lotus into my MBP via USB and it also worked normally. Tonight, I tried to connect my phone once again, and it didn't mount. So, I tried the memory card in an adapter and it didn't mount either! My MBP isn't old at all (got it at the end of November '09)!
I'm having a bit of trouble trying to get a 4gb Memory Stick Duo to mount on my macbook running 10.6.2. My camera doesn't recognise the card when inserted and neither does my macbook. When I try connect it to the macbook I get the "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer" with three options of: Initialise, Ignore, Eject. When I view the card in disk utility the repair and verify disk are greyed out as the screen shot shows. It says it is a 33mb disk when it should be 4gb and the SMART status is not supported and Partition Map scheme says it is unformatted. The format should be FAT (I think). It seems the card could be corrupted in some way or worse dead. Is there anyway of trying to recover the files, which are all photos?
I have an A-Data brand 16 gig SDHC card which became corrupted/damaged in my Canon S90 (it looks like a lot of people are having problems with this card). When I put the card into the card reader attached to my Mac Pro, the volume does not show up on the desktop, or appear at all under Disk Utility. No error message of any kind pops up. If I look in Console, I see the following messages:
Code: USBF:28693.905AppleUSBUHCI[0x11f5b000]::Found a transaction which hasn't moved in 5 seconds on bus 0x1d, timing out!

I have tried a variety of card recovery programs on my Mac, and on the Windows side booted under VMWare. But since the card is not mounting at all, none of these programs can see the card to try to recover anything. I really would like to recover these photos.
The screen on my iMac has cut out. It has happened before and I have had to restart the system to get it back. This time however that hasn't worked. I have booted up the system and can access the files using a second machine via ethernet and the screen did come back briefly when I pressed the ctrl ket before going blank again.
I have this card reader. I have this brand new SD card. When I plug the card reader in and put the SD card in. The card reader blinks the light and then, on my disk utility. All I see is this: So it does not show up on the desktop. It seems I cant mount it. I cant erase it or anything...it says "permission denied" when I try to format it. I have a Mac Pro too.
I bought an Express card from here: [URL] I connected an eSATA drive to it. I don't see the drive in Finder and I suspect I need to format it first. But I don't see an equivalent to the Windows Disk Manager. How do I format the new external drive?
I have a SD card that has some files on it that I need. When I put it in my card reader and plug it into the USB it doesnt mount. I tried it in another card reader and it wont work in that one either. I opened Disk Utility and it shows that it mounts it for a split second and shows the size, but then it disappears from the list. I really need these files. Is there any way to recover them?
I get many problems with the SD port of my MBP.†I purchase today Hi Quality SQ Card (SDHC Extreme Pro).†When I insert my card in my MBP : Nothing mount!†What I have to do? An update of my mac firmware? Or format my card in special format on an other device?
My buddy and I just finished swapping the airport card for a mini pci-e sata card in his 2008 Imac and all is well. Unfortunately, we could not get it to show or mount anywhere on mine (2010). We tried everything. We loaded the raid drivers and the none raid. We tried both cards (his and mine) in my machine and still nothing. His Imac mounted his ssd immediately after installing the drivers. Could it be that the new logic boards do not support this type of card? Is there a special driver that I need for the i7? I was hoping this would add 2 more sata ports.
My 27in late 2013 iMac using Yosemite 10.10.1 will not recognize USB card readers. I've tried 3 different card readers and even a brand new 3.0 reader. I only Lexar Professional Compact Flash cards, so I have to use an external card reader. My 2010 Macbook Pro has no problems reading all 3 of my external card readers. If I plug in an SD card to the external card reader nothing happens, but if I insert the SD card straight into the iMac it can recognize the card immediately. What am I doing wrong?
1. When I drag a group of songs from¬† a playlist to a memory card iTunes adds a series of numbers to the beginning of each song title. (For example Misty becomes 09-2 Misty. Several songs may be assigned the same number. This makes it impossible to sort these songs alphabetically on the memory card. I can remove the number manually either by renaming each song in the list or by using the Get Info command. Either way each song must be renamed individually.¬† How can I drag songs without iTunes adding a number?
My Mom and I have different cameras and she doesn't use a computer, so she usually asks me to upload her pics. Problem is, she's got a Sony Camera and it uses a proprietary Sony cable and I hate having to switch between my cable (just a standard USB camera cable) to hers. What I want is a compact USB memory card reader that handles both SD and Sony Memory Sticks. I'd like one that just plugs straight in to USB without a cable. I've looked around and can't find a whole lot.
I tried using a freeware ( EXIF Untrasher) and a paid software (Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery Software) and both were unsuccessful in recovering deleted files on my CF Card. Both were only recovering the files that are still "present" on the card and not the ones deleted. Is there something else I can do? Please help as the files(photos)
