OK, yesterday I did what every geek should be hung for when they do it. I DID NOT SAFELY REMOVE MY SD CARD! Now there is a reason for this. I had the good old Windows Movie Maker renduring a video project, and whenever Windows movie maker is open, it will not let me safely remove anything. The SD card wasn't even being read for anything, at least to my knowledge. I plugged it in to get the video files off of it and then accidentally forgot to take it out of the computer (safely of course)
So here's my problem: After having yanked the SD card out because I needed it for another project to occupy me while the video was renduring, the card doesn't work in my camera. It simply states that there is no SD card at all. Now the card DOES work with the computer, and I did format the SD card to see if that could fix it. Because for all I know maybe it was being accessed when I pulled it out. I wouldn't know this because the reader has no activity lights. If it was being accessed, the act of interrupting it could've made its files corrupt or something. That did not work. So I can use it with my computer still, but not with my camera. If anyone could help me out with this issue that would be great.
Also, every other SD card I've tried (except my micro SD one because the lock tab on the adapter broke off so it now thinks the card is locked) works with my camera.

Perhaps it is the connection from the SD card to the camera. If you have any other SD cards try putting them in the camera, and seeing if you have the same problem. When my SD card got wet it would not work in my camera, so I let it dry, and it is fine now. I would recommend if it is a small amount of GB's on that SD card that you just buy yourself a new one. If it was a high capacity SDHC, expensive card try calling customer service, very ofter do the send out replacements depending on the company. Good luck!
