Mac Won't Read SD Card

Hi all,

My Mac is not reading an SD card from a digital camera. The card appears on neither the desktop nor in finder. The card works fine in my camera. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks in advance!

Was the card reader working before or did you start having issues only recently?

In the past, it has worked fine. I'm fairly sure I was using the same SD card, too. This problem only came around recently.

Can you clarify what model you have so we can guide you to the needed part you'll need to fix this.

Plug your systems serial number here: EveryMac - Lookup then paste the systems URL so we can see what you have.

I restarted the computer and the card is now read... guess I probably should have started with this :/

Make sure the contacts on the SD card are clean, use a CLEAN pencil eraser and lightly rub the gold contacts. If that doesn't work you might need to open it up and clean the internal contacts.

Alternatively; try another SD card
