    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.
