    sdhc card and reader question

    i bought a new sd card yesterday, a lexar 4gb platinum ll, sdhc.

    when i put it into my card reader and then insert the reader into my mac's usb, the mac does not recognize the reader.

    the reader still works with the older card.

    do i need a different card reader for a hc card?

    Yep, same thing happened to me. Until I get a new reader I'm plugging the G1 into the USB port of the Mac.

    I was looking for a new reader today and got confused and gave up. Do you know if an sdhc reader will recognize a regular sd card?

    Guy

    That is how I got me reader as well. Everything works fine although I have not tried to use it with older generation cards. I'll have to do that.
