I'm trying to transfer picture files from an sd card, but every time I try to access any of the files, the device disappears then reappears again. My computer detects the card when I plug it into my card reader, but I can't do anything with the files. My camera is a Cannon Powershot SD1100 IS if that helps. I've tried transfering the pictures directly from my camera using Cannon's software, accessing the camera directly through windows explorer and using a card reader, but the same thing happens every time I try to copy the files to my PC.

Does your card reader have user-assigned device letters?

ie, in Disk Management, have you assigned drive letters to the card reader/s ?

If not, with it connected, try to assign Drive Letters in Disk management for each 'reader' category (my external has 4 categories).

What do you mean by Disk Management?

OK, I tried that, but it still disappears when I try to access any of the files.

With it connected and showing, click Start, Run and type cmd /k and then click OK.

In the DOS window, type copy drive letter:\*.* c:\*.* and see if that'll work.

(drive letter being the card reader drive letter)

Afaik yes, that's correct.

It seems your comp doesn't like that SD card. It may be damaged.

Do you have another?

I do and it does the same thing. They're both SanDisk. Not the best quality, but they've worked fine until recently.

OK - then the liklihood is a comp issue.


Do you have a Restore Point set? If so, use the last you have.

It's still doing it. I only just turned that on a few weeks ago and I think it started before that.

Then, copy off all that you value and use a drive wiper and then reformat and reinstall.


Sometimes that's the simplest solution (actually, often times).
