Why my PC cannot recognize the memory card?

Last Update date : 2015.09.22



If a memory card, including SD card, which has been safety removed from the multi-memory slot, is reconnected, some models are unable to recognize the memory card.


If the memory card slot has an USB controller, selecting ‘Safely Remove Hardware’ removes the USB multi-memory controller instead of a memory card.

Note: No trouble occurs if the memory card slot has a PCI controller.


It is recommended to use a memory card without safely removing. There is no damage on the data of a multi-memory card.
