    Plugged in an sd card to upload pictures and had no response. Also tried a compact flash card and also no response, any ideas out there?

    Does your computer have a built in (onboard) card reader, or are you using an external unit?

    If it is external, then it might need some driver (unless if its a firewire usb plug-in. If it still doesn't work after a driver, I would just get a new one, or buy a printer of something with sd slot built in.

    It has worked all along, but all of a sudden it does not read any cards I put in, I can still use my printer to dl pictures, I would like to figure out why the desktop has stopped reading. Thanks for responding.
