I have a 2GB Kingston 50x SD card. I've been using itjust fine in my Canon Powershot SD400 for several weeks. I've beendownloading the pictures using the USB cable from the camera to my Windows XP machine.

But today I tried reading from the card using mymemory card reader and my computer can't seem to read it. The first time I tried, it struggled and said thatthe card wasn't formatted, and offeredto reformat (I declined). Subsequent attempts havenot succeed, and don't even cause my system to ask to reformat it. IfI take the same card and put it back in the camera, it has no troubletransfering pics to the computer. I've tried reformatting the card, both regular and low formatting, and ithasn't helped.

So, the card seems so work just fine as long as I keep it in my camera, but fails when connected directly to the computer.

Any suggestions?

one of my sd cards causes my pc to crash in one reader, but works fine in everything else - maybe it is the card reader?

I just spoke with the manufacturer of my card reader. They told my my card reader is only able to handle card of 1GB or less (I've had it for about 3 years). So it looks like I just need to get a new card reader.
