im trying to use some sandisk 48MB ata flashcards in my stylistic 1000. windows recognized the cards and installs the software for them, however they dont show up in my computer as another drive like they normally do on other comps. has anyone else played around with anything like this? i thought it would be a great idea to transfer files from my laptop to my tablet but it doesnt seem to work.
i tried that with no luck.. the icon shows up in the system tray and clicking on it shows that there is a flash card present, but the card doesnt show up as a drive. i used an external pcmcia drive bay with a laptop hard drive and it shows up as a useable drive as soon as i plug it in.
well thats the problem... the card shows up in the tray icon, but doesnt show up in 'my computer'.. its not really that big of a deal as i dont use the tablet anyhow. it was just something to tinker with.
I had a similar problem adding a flash card reader and found it had assigned a drive letter that was not
appearing on My Computer. I used Tweak UI/My Computer, checked the assigned drive letter and it now appears OK.
plug in your pc cards into your laptop and check to see if the flash memory cards are formatted and your laptop can read and write to them. if they are not formatted, do so.
do you plug in the pc card after the 1000 is running or before you turn it on? the only time i have seen your problem is when the device on the pc card takes too much power. i solved my problem by plugging in everything with the computer off and then turning the computer on.
the flash cards are formatted because as i explained, im trying to use them to move files from the laptop to the tablet.. the files show up on the cards when i use them on the laptop and i am able to use them.. however, the flash cards dont show up in windows when i use them on the tablet.. this happens whether i plug the card in before startup or if i insert the card while the tablet is in use.. if i put another pcmcia hard drive in the slot it shows up as another useable drive.. im beginning to think it may just be that brand of flash cards as i have seen other people use other brands in their tablets and they work just fine.
What os do you have on the tablet ? And which file system are you using, "fat" or "fat32" ?
I may be wrong but I thought I read somewhere that files created by a pc using fat32 can't be read by a pc using fat.
I had this same problem, it's an easy fix too. Go into Device Manager, and go to "drives" you'll see the card listed there, go to it's properties, and tell it to assign a drive letter(I believe you have to chek the "removable device" box or something before you're able to select the drive letters) It'll show up after the next reboot.-sirjay
