It's a new card but used it few times before.

That's the first thing that came to mind. Will try it if everything fails. Also, there is a reader on the monitor (which is what I use) and another on the PC itself. Both failed.

It's the other way around, CJ. I can see the pics in camera (except about 10) but the PC doesn't recognize the card.



Great news! Couldn't sleep last night because of the issue. Luckily, I didn't delete or record over the existing photos.
Maybe if the camera will read the card it will through-put the data to the PC.
Best of luck with this one, my friend.

Regards
Steve

...& if everything else fails, SANDisk RescuePro *will* get you to the images, and *will* get the images off the card

Thank you, Max.

Will RescuePro works if the PC can't see the card.

Connected the camera to the PC but Canon's software says it's not compatible with the connected camera.

Zoombrowser (6.0.1) said the same thing

Used other software on your PC to try and mount that card? (Like Photoshop, PSE, Picasa, ACDSee, Photo Mechanic).

No, but the PC *will* see the card, maybe only can't read it.

In that case: RescuePro can

Thank you Stercus Vultus and Max.

Solved the problem...for the most part. This is what happened:

Tried RescuePro but it took forever to check 1% so I canceled the operation, that's when I tried ZB and failed. Updated ZB to the latest version and got the same message that the software is not compatible with the camera. My heart sunk to my stomach at this point, almost wanted to cry In a moment of despariration I thought why not check (XP's) File Manager. To my delight there was an icon for Canon EOS 1DsIII, and to the right there were icons of photos. My spirit shot up to the roof Selected all of them and copied to the external HD. The semi bad news is it only copied ~ 964 images out of ~ 1,100. Not bad at all, especially that I've already converted about 15 of them w/o any hiccup. Will work on the remaining 140 or so at another time.
