Default Card Reader won't read 2Gb SD card

I haven't found a solution yet either - though I can try using my
camera as the card reader. I do have 2 generic card readers, both of
which work fine with XP and Windows 2003 Server, without requiring any
drivers etc. Small capacity SD cards do work for me (my 1GB and 512MB
cards work ok), it's just the 2GB cards that won't work. I tried
Maxell, Sandisk and Kingston branded 2GB SD cards.

I also tried the SD hotfix, didn't change behaviour on my PC at all.

There's a known problem with earlier versions of one Toshiba laptop
group for which Toshiba say there is no solution except to use an
external card reader.

The KB article listed is for SD host controllers (sdbus.sys). It takes
no effect on USB card reader (using usbstor.sys and disk.sys). If you
believe your 2.0GB card in your card reader does not work under XP,
could you try to format the card and copy a 1GB file to it? If it
works, please let me know the brand and model of your card reader and
the card.

Thanks,
-yue

Sorry -- it's not my problem -- I was offering background.

Please go back to the first message in the discussion and post the
message to the original poster.

I got the same problem here. I have a notebook hp nc6400 running windows
vista and it was not able to recognize correctly my 2GB SD card. The
solution above I found in a forum at HP.com.

Run regedit and edit the key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\t ifm21\Parameters.
Change the value from 16 (Decimal) to 1. Reboot and voilą.

It worked fine for me... I hope it can work for you guys too.

Regards

do you have the actual link to the forum? the info you posted may be
specific to TI controllers or a subset of them.

Before anyone tried this, they should back up the registry key.

Hi, the link is the following:
http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/f...readId=1139027

As you said, I guess this solution applies only to card readers made by
Texas Instruments.

Best Regards
