G'day Patrick

yes mate - all the card readers I have seen over the years seem to have a position -shared with another card- for the XD cards to be inserted

Take the card with you as you go thru the shops & i'm sure you'll find what you're after

Has Lumix mirrorless & superzoom cameras and loves their amazing capabilities
Spends 8-9 months each year travelling Australia

If you have the card being read by the camera, connect the camera up to the computer, and transfer the data/images. This way you are using the camera as the card reader.

If you cant read the card on the camera, then use a external card reader connected to your PC and see if you can transfer.

If it doesn't recognise it that way either can try a few things.
-Make sure the reader is recognising other cards and working properly
-Make sure the drivers are installed properly
-Make sure the drivers/firmware are up to date
-Look up some backup/recovery/ghosting software for memory cards, so you can extract the data you need, and pray that not too much of it has corrupted.
