    I just bought an edge and it came with a t-flash adapter for the sd card, but whenever I plug it in its not being detected by the computer? Any of you guys know why?

    Some info:
    OS: Windows Vista home premium
    - everything is updated
    - SD card is working

    BTW, is a third of the SD card really supposed to be sticking out like that when plugged to T-Flash? I've tried pushing it more gently, but Im afraid I might break it. Is it supposed to go all the way in?

    Advanced Thanks for the help.

    Not supposed to go all the way in (or else you would not be able to take it out), but the only plausible explanation here is that you didn't push it in far enough.

    And if your computer has a built-in multimedia reader, use the SD adapter with that instead of the USB reader.

    Ok, I've tried pushing it as much as it can go and nothing is still happening. Could the t-flash be defective?

    What color is the Transflash adapter? Is it silver with a black cap? Are there any lights and do they come on when you plug it in the USB drive?

    Its transparent black both on the body and cap. No light is flashing which is exactly why Im suspecting something is wrong with it.

    I assume you mean the same one as in this review: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=74099

    Never heard anything about that reader in particular but it doesn't seem to have a light at all. However, lots of the older Transflash readers are faulty and that one looks pretty cheap the me. Just buy a new USB reader or find some other way to connect the MicroSD (cell phone, camera).
