Hi 2112 , 

 

Greetings. 

 

As per product specification of G400s 2in1 card reader (SD, MMC) .

SDHC host is not supported as shown here for the compatibility chart.

 

"Because SDHC works differently than standard SD cards, this new format is NOT backwards compatible with host devices that only take SD (128MB - 2GB) cards. Most readers and host devices built after 2008 should be SDHC compatible."

 

Hope this help answer your query. 

 

Regards

Thanks.
I read sandisk link before create this topic.

"Most readers and host devices built after 2008 should be SDHC compatible."

Did Lenovo released my laptop in 2013 with an obsolete card reader?

Hi 2112 , 

 

Would you have the machine number / MTM from the sticker ? 

 

G400s touch comes in different variants of the same model . some would have 2-1 card reader as other may have 5-1 (example machine number 59376095 even depending on its machine type and number . You may privately message me the serial number for verification.

 

As per hardware manual (page 28), general specifications :  2-in1 card reader (SD, MMC) 

You may also check for a sticker SDHC near the card reader slot.

Otherwise simple solution is just to have a USB card reader similar to this discussion.

 

Update us soon as convenient.

 

Regards

There is no sticker SDHC near my card reader slot.

Hi 2112

 

You may check your machine number also from the parts look up page aside from the card reader itself to check if yours is a 2 in 1 or  4/5 in 1 card reader  too. 

 

Regards

Hi 2112,

 

Greetings. 

 

 

Any USB portable card reader similar to this can be an option although it would be sticking out of the laptop that way.

 

Please don't hesitate to visit our community at anytime.
