The CF card in the wife's S9500 has ceased to be read via the USB cable in both Windows XP and Linux (both systems saw the camera before as an external drive). I cannot think of anything I have done to cause this. The card has integrity and we managed to get the 400+ photos off onto CD's via a PC in the local photo shop. I have re-formated the card and tried every setting I can find on the camera but..... no connection via USB seen.... can anyone help here please? Thanks - Peter
