I have a canon ixus 400 and have a 256mb flashcard that the camera reads but my PC will not recognise.. the pc handles my other cards OK.
I have tried switching PC off and holding power button in to (according to the maker) discharge static.. but does not make any difference.
Its annoying because card has pics of a holiday abroad which are difficult to redo.. is there anything else I can try.. the light by the card on the pc does come on when it is inserted.

You might be able to use the camera as a card reader. Can you plug the camera into your PC with the card in it ? If the PC recognizes the camera as a 'mass storage' device, (this is how mine works) you can click on it, and 'open' the files, or just drag them onto your desktop.

Thank 911 .. it did qualify as a stupid question.. I had missed the obvious!
