Hello nimmoism

There are many possible steps to try and rectify this and these steps differ with each camera make and model and range from reloading your computer to reloading the firmware of your camera or oven fixing a hardware error on your camera. All of these take time and money to do so I will give you my suggestion.

As a professional photographer I have used a USB multi card reader since 2002. I still use it today on my new camera's as they all use the same memory card. The device cost me R100 (about $14) back then and I know they are dirt cheap these days. You can go get one for probably $5-$8 and spare yourself the hassle of trying to fix the problem.

These are more dependable , flexible and faster so even though I have all my original cables in the camera boxes , I will never use them again.

This is the best advice I can give you but should you really want to fix the problem , let me know and I will see what I can suggest for you.

Kind Regards
