HP 7-in-1 Card Reader

I have an older HP Pavilion a450n desktop PC.  I am about to install a memory card for my cell phone that says it can take an 8GB card.  I'd like to use it to transfer files from my cell phone to my PC.  I'm a beginner at this, but I suspect my PC is too old to accept an SDHC card.  I assume I would insert the card (in an adapter) into the MMC/SD slot.  Is this correct?  Also what is the maximum size it will take?

Hi,

 

Review the specifications for your PC. You are correct, SDHC is not mentioned.

 

I would go with an external USB media reader.  They are cheap and will do the job.

Re: HP 7-in-1 Card Reader

This is a quick way that might fix your problem without having to spend any money. It worked for me on both my panasonic and hp notebooks. http://www.ehow.com/how_4890805_card-reader-sdhc-card-compatible.html Hope it works for you.
