Hello,
I've never had this problem before, but when I insert the sd card from my camera into the computer nothing happens. It doesn't even give me an option to open. Please help

You could have a physical problem with the card. This recently happened to me, the card stopped working on vacation. I couldn't use any software to recover my photos as the card wasn't being recognized by any card reader. Eventually I found out that it was a physical problem with the controller inside the card. The only way to solve the issue is to access the memory chip inside the card manually. I managed to recover my photos using the following company: http://card-recovery.biz/us/service.php

They explain the process and the rates are reasonable in comparison to some of the very big data recovery companies....

I have a similar problem. My card does show up in MY COMPUTER but does not open on its own. I put a cd with photos on it in the drive and they did not open either. I could open them through MY COMPUTER but its a pain to get them moved over to MY PICTURES. Is that just a setting problem?
