Cannot read files from my compact card

  User-324448 13:08 17 Feb 2007

I have a new computer running Vista with a built in card reader (8 cards) I have tried to get my photos from a compact flash card and I am told on the screen that the files are not known, its the same story when I plug in a usb card reader, this is on my Vista Home Premiun, it all works fine on my XP computer when I use the same usb reader

Vista wouldn't work with my sd card. I found that backing up the files on my sd card then formatting it on Vista, this would then work fine. Back up your files from your compact flash card then format the compact flash card when it's in the computer. Then take it out, put your files back on and try it with Vista again.

Is it the card reader or the software receiving the information? Does Device Manager show a fault?

Thanks Jimmy14 its all working now but Im sure I will be back for more assistance with Vista,
( why did I do this to myself when Xp suited me?)
