Is there a drive called Removable Drive?? If so then that is your camera. Have a look in it.

Also did you format the new card before using it???

No other folders inside?? On my camera i have to go down three folder before i get to the pictures.

What camera do you have?

Have you tried reinstalling the USB drivers for the camera?

and what make of Digital Camera?

Some cameras, as you probably know, come with their own "thumbnail program"/display. Is there one installed, and if so, is this setup as default?

You might have to re-install the camera software or the 32MB SD card may be faulted.

Hope this helps.

" if i take out mem card then xp just grabs the pics no probs"

How does XP grab the pics if the card is NOT there? Does the camera have built in memory??

What camera have you got. It seems as if there is an inbuilt memory.

Can you see the pictures taken on the SD card using the cameras own LCD display?; if so, then the card is probably OK.

Consider getting a SD USB card reader; Sevenday shop have one for £9.49.
