Glad you are sorted! As to why I have no idea (don't have a card-reader and I have never had any problems with getting the pics. of the camera card to the PC - which is when I often see people recommending a reader).
Have a good holiday!
PS - when you have got all your holiday snaps be careful if you use your reader - I'd hate to see another post asking "how do I recover my pics" LOL!

I mean, of course, if you are using the card in the card reader/writer - it should be removed and replaced in the camera to delete pix files that have been transferred to your system or are no longer wanted.
If you are using XP and wish to transfer pics from your card using a card reader and clear the card at the same time. Open the card in mycomputer. Select all of the pics you wish to keep. Right click on the selection and use the Move To command at the left of the screen. This transfers photos and takes them from your card at the same time. I always do this and have never had any problems .It saves having to go into the camera to delete the pics.
