    Someone help, please! For some reason my PC will not recognize 128 MB compact flash cards. I've tried two different cards from separate manufacturers and two different readers from two different manufacturers. Both readers will read the 16 MB Lexar card that came with my digital camera. Both 128 MB cards work in the camera. What's the deal? Is there a solution? Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    Regards,

    Have you tried formatting the card? There should be an option with the camera to do it. No reason why it should not work.

    Yes, I've tried formatting the card. The computer tells me that there's no disk in the drive and to insert a disk ('cept that we're talking flash media here, of course)--exactly like when you try to format a: and there's no floppy in the drive.
