I also have a T61 with Windows XP. I am trying to use an AData SDHC 4GB card and am unable to read or format it. I attempted to install the appropriate Microsoft hotfix for this problem (high capacity SD cards), but still am unable to read.
My T61 used to have Vista and I could read this card. I tried reading on my friend's T61 with Vista and he was able to read and format. I tried 2 other T61s that are on Windows XP, none can read a card greater than 2GB. A 2GB card works just fine.
I tried contacting Lenovo, but they consider this a software (Microsoft) issue and are not able to address it without me paying for additional support, even though I have warranty support coverage.
So it appears anyone running WinXP on their T61 is likely out of luck with SDHC cards and the Ricoh card reader.
This is why I prefer Macs....

I couldn't read my 8GB SDHC card on WinXP or Win7 32-bit ... BUT
it works fine on Windows 7 64-bit!

a simple Google search reveals that XP needs an Hotfix to enable SD HC use.

I was able to solve on a W500 with this solution for a T61:
The solution does not involve any drivers that were not already on the computer, so it doesn't appear to be version specific.
