Can I use a 4GM SDHC card in my Samsung Digimax S800? The manual says "up to 1GB guarantied".

No. Your camera will accept a maximum SD card capacity of 2GB. It simply isn't capable of handling anything of a larger capacity and in particular is incompatible with the more technically advanced SDHC cards.

Your fix is to either replace your camera with a later model or to stick to using SD cards with a maximum 2GB capacity.

Canon a95 camera not found in my new hp laptop to download pictures from camera to laptop with windows vista . disk downloaded the sorftware just fine and it brings up the zoombrowser. Do I need a special...

If you installed the disc that came with your camera into Vista and it still does not recognize the camera when you plug in your USB cable, one quick solution to get the pictures off of your card would be to purchase a card reader (approx. $20 here in the states). That is assuming that the computer does not have one built in. If it does, open the battery door on the camera with the camera off, and press on the card to eject it, put the microSDHC card into the SD adapter and plug that into your card reader into the SD slot. From there you should be ready to go.

Is my 2Gb SD card toast? Is it the fault of the card reader?

Card might have been friend by the reader, I certainly wouldn't try it again with another card. What happened is that when the coin connected with both sides of the reader chip, it created an electrical loopback and fried the reader. Ever taped a penny to a 9-volt battery and it got really hot and eventually melted/exploded? Same thing just happened to your card reader unfortunately. No amount of fixing it inside Vista will solve this problem, I would get into contact with the computer manufacturer and see if you can send it in for fixing. Don't mention how it broke or they will certainly void your warranty.
Please rate, thanks!

Write protection

Look on te side of the card and you will find a small (mostly white) switch you can move up and down, it is used to lock the sd card (=write protected).

Camera not reading SD card after being removed from my reader

Put the SD card back into the card reader. Are you files still there when the computer tries to read them?
If they are not, then it is very likely the card is corrupt. This happens when the card is removed before the computer is done reading/writing to the card.

There is also a SLIM chance the card is just bad.
