I tied to use my memory card reader to read my card from my camera, xD, and no go. Says' "insert disk" but have already inserted disk. The manual says nothing about installing drivers. I am a very low-level computer person so please, if you have any help for me, make sure it is in straight-forward English, not computer-ese. Silly me, I thought the card reader would be "just plug into slot and use."

Re: memory card reader on new VGN-SZ480 doesn't work
Yes it is really plug into slot and use but it won't work at all if you won't install drivers. So please go to Sony's website and choose your model there and then download n install drivers. Thats it. Simple or not ?

You can purchase a Targus card reader from Walmart which will plug into a USB connector on your computer. Directions on it's usage are included with the card reader. The package says it is compatible with SDHC SD/MMC, XD, Memory Stick, Pro Duo, and Magic Gate.I ran into a problem with the Targus TGR-CRD25 when trying to read an XD or SD memory card 1GB or bigger. Targus fixed it with a note on their web site: To operate plug card reader into the USB port, go into "My Computer", click "Removeable disk drive", insert your memory card into the card slot and upload your data. Please remove your memory card before disconnecting the card reader.
Depending on the size of the xD card, your camera may need a firmware update to be able to read xD cards larger than 256mb. If the card used to work but now doesn't, try formatting it as FAT16 or FAT32 while it's inserted into the camera. If you still get an error and you have a card reader on your PC, try formatting it from there as FAT16 or FAT32 file formats.
Your 2gb xd card would be of the "M" or "H" designation, which is a new type of card which is not always compatible with many cameras and card readers. If the other cards that work are not H or M cards, that is most likely the problem
May sound naive to you, but sometimes, particularly in XD card, when it is not being read by a card reader or camera, just try to wipe it's Copper plates firmly with your thumb and try again. Repeat the process. It happened with me and i tried it accidently once, and it worked, and it has worked many times. Don't scratch the copper plates, just wipe with ur thumb. Hope it works for you too. Good Luck.
