Why does my Wintec Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) card not work on my phone/card reader or other SD capable device?
Current generation SDHC Cards are designed for use in HC-enabled devices and are not backwards compatible with older versions of the Secure Digital specification (non-HC). You can usually find a High Capacity (HC) logo on devices like card readers, or in the documentation for other devices like phones and cameras telling you that your device is compatible with the newer HC specification. A quick phone or web contact with the manufacturer of your device can usually help you obtain clarification for the compatibility question about your device's ability to run newer HC specification cards.

Note: A older device may have to be replaced or flashed with updated firm (obtained from the original manufacturer) to obtain the latest HC compatibility. Since compatibility is based on the internal chipset design of the device, some items like cards reader are typically replaced outright. This is because the low initial cost of most card readers versus the cost to implement an ability to do firmware upgrades isn't cost effective. Many consumer devices are designed to prioritize an effort to keep the initial retail cost to the end user very reasonable. Just make sure the new card reader you purchase has HC capability.
