T500: SDHC Card Must Format?

My SD card reader on my T500 works only with SD cards. When I put it any SDHC card, it askes me to format it. The card reads perfectly fine on Linux and with a USB Flash Drive adapter for it but why doesn't it work directly? It is because I need to update it?

Perhaps yes.


Since you're running Win XP so try this fix from MS:- http://support.microsoft.com/kb/934428

Maliha: Forgot to that it works with other SDHC cards.

 

Problem fixed. Drivers never installed even when I ran the "installer." I just opened the Device Manager and "updated" the drivers by pointing to the SDMMC folder, the extractor created.

I had to use this to solve:

says it's for T61, but the steps do not include anything that is hardware specific.
