    I have just purchased a Canon SD770IS ELPH. I have an 8GB HP SD High
    Capacity memory card that I have used but with some problems. Like the
    32MB card that came with the camera, the 8 GB memory card is formatted
    in RAW. When I remove the card from the camera and put it into my 3
    year old laptop, the card is recognized in but not any files on the
    disk. In Explorer there is a Removable SD/MMC drive assignment, but
    when I click on the drive, I receive a message that the drive is not
    accessible and that the network resource type is not correct. When I
    check Properties, it shows 0 bytes!! Yet, when I put the card in a
    receiver and look at it in Explorer, then the card is recognized as 8 GB
    and the picture files are shown, as well as the appropriate
    directories..! I am trying to figure if it is an issue with the
    operating system, the SD HC memory card, or the computer SD/MMC slot.

    Does anyone have any info?

    Thanks

    Most likely, the built-in card reader can't handle a card that big.
    Many early readers were limited to 2GB.
