from Nutty Norm thanks to fruit bat and Northumbria 61 i have tried these suggestions, from yesterday, the computer gave me no joy so i formatted the card on the camera, then took a few photo on the clean card and i am still getting no joy, fruit bat i dont know how do spot the card readers on the device management, i have tried the card again on the computer and its still saying it needs formating before it can be recognised,its all double dutch to me, would it be wise to go and get a new card and try it again , i can get my pictures on the computer by plugging it in through the USB, but not with the SD Card nutty norm
