Cards greater than 2 GB are SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) cards. Devices that don't support SDHC can't read SDHC cards. Most likely your laptop's current configuration doesn't support SDHC.
Based on Gateway's support site, it looks like your laptop was made sometime in 2006 or so? Most laptops from that era didn't have SDHC support out of the box. I know my Dell E1705 didn't.
The good news is that the card reader hardware in most such units is SDHC capable, the laptop just needs a driver upgrade to support SDHC (like my Dell did).
The latest card reader driver for the Gateway MX6912 is at http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/getFile
If that driver doesn't fix your problem, you have two choices:
1) Stick with cards less than 2 GB (this could be a pain with the D60)
2) Get a USB SDHC reader
Actually a third option is to use the USB cable that came with the D60, but this is usually slower, eats battery, and uses a weird cable no other device you own uses.
