We recently purchased a new Toshiba Satellite X205-S7483 with Windows Vista Home Premium already installed. The *only* problem to date is the fact that it refuses to read my older Sony memory sticks, the bluish ones about 1-1/2" long, not the tiny xD or Duo sticks.
I have verified that this laptop does recognize the older sticks
I have checked device manager, and the SD device is working properly
I have downloaded all applicable updates from the Toshiba/Windows sites
I have verified the stick I'm using is working
I have verified that I have this problem with all my sticks
When I insert the stick into the slot, nothing happens. When I check the "my computer" screen to "manually" access the stick, the DVD-R drive is the only "mass storage device" shown.
Please help; I don't want to have to buy a newer, upgraded camera just to use Vista.
