Update: I updated my Linux Lite once more and my laptop eventually recognized the SD card without problems ! Probably it was a driver bug. I am using the SD card since about two days. Hope that it will not show any troubles . . . Anyways, thanks for the answers !

Hello, people !

Since I bought a SD card to free my storage space at my SSD, I had operational troubles. At first, my LL didn't recognize the SD card. I did a research, and eventually solve the problem. But afterwards my laptop started to freeze at the time I put the SD card in the slot ! My LL is updated. This SD card runs smoothly at other devices, like my smartphone and my tablet.

Your system, is 11 (eleven!) years old.
What you are expecting from it, is that the great-great-great-great-grandfather already knows how the great-great-great-great-grandson looks like.
Or, in other words, you expect Linux Lite 2.x to look and run like Linux Lite 7.0.

In other words, your phone is the same age with your SD card.
Try using your SD card on an eleven years old phone. See what happens. Assuming that you can...

Solution?

Buy an "All-In-One" USB card reader. I presume the grandfather has at least one USB port...
My grandfather ASUS X200MA, has three and has almost the same age: nine years.
And, yes, it only recognizes old SD formats, like some of the 8 GB ones. Not all, though.

For your own peace of mind:
I have a Korg PA500 keyboard workstation, bought in 2012. It only accepts 2 GB (2048 MB) SD cards.
I tried a 4 GB one and got an error message stating that "OS media missing or damaged".
So...

Good luck!

I'm confused by this.
A system that doesn't recognise an SD card being inserted is better than a system that crashes/freezes when the card is inserted.

What were the operational troubles ?
What did you do to resolve the problem ?
What happened between you fixing the first problem and the start of the freeze/crash problem ?
Can you revert to the original set up ?
