Default DMC-FZ35 - Computer won't read SD Card

I've never had this issue before - hope you might have some suggestions.
Using a DMC-FZ35 with an 8 GB Transcend (Class 6) SDHC card.
I previously used this card in this camera without problem and was able to transfer the images to my PC.

This week I shot a bunch of images & videos of my daughter's skating team. I can view them all on the camera without problem, but when I try to transfer them (using Panasonic PhotoFunStudio software and the USB cable), it fails. Then I tried to insert the card into the PC's card reader, but it can't read it and offers to reformat the card.

I inserted a new (4 GB) card and was able to take & load photos, so the camera, software & cable seem to be working fine.

Any suggestions? I prefer not to lose the images & videos from the team.

Thanks!

Depending on how old your computer is the SD card reader may not read SDHC cards...
If that's the case you may need to get a newer reader that can...

Here's what I use...

http://www.amazon.com/Transcend-Flas...8638042&sr=8-1

They are cheap and work like a charm... I bought two to have a spare...

If that's not the case then maybe the data on the card is corrupted in some way... There's
lots of free software designed to get your images off of corrupted flash memory...

Here are the results from a google search...

Maybe something there could help...?

Good luck...

thanks.

It wasn't the reader.
I did download some software (TestDisk/PhotoRec) - which was freeware - which was able to access the disk and let me retrieve the pictures.
My guess is that the partition was corrupt or similar, but I was able to get the images off the card and can now reformat.

Thanks, again, for your help!
