Import Pictures and Video Error

Hi everyone. I am getting this error multiple times (as much as 50 times while importing 500 pictures) as I try to import pictures and video from a memory card using my PC's built in card reader. I am given the option of trying again and it will work, but I have to manually click on "Try again". Quite the pain. I remember not having this issue at all some time ago but I don't know why it has changed. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

many things can affect a memory card and the data con get corrupted.
that said--try opening an explorer window--see if the card is listed (possible name 'data disk', 'storage device' or similar)--right click--select OPEN--if a window opens--search thru folder structure to pictures and try to drag them to a 'new folder' on your desktop

Just tried a brand new memory card and the same thing is happening. Very frustrated.

maybe the card reader is bad.
do you have a USB cable for your camera? can you connect it directly to a USB port and access the photos that way?

I checked the drive in Device Manger. It says it's working properly. I checked for an updated driver but it is already using the most up-to-date one. Argh!

Ok, connected camera to computer via USB. I had 50 photos on memory card. It was going great until picture #49. Same error. It happened to picture #50 also.

were you 'importing' photos--or did you open an explorer window and try dragging them to a folder?
