HI, Have you tried to format the card yet? If you have images in the card, first transfer them to your computer. and then format the card, using the camera. It should start working. Mine did. Also, sometimes, take the card out, rub its metal plates with the thumb firmly and then re-insert the card. That also helps to have it work properly. If the problem persists, try using another card and if it is still the same. Get the card chamber checked. I have experienced same problem many times and it gets resolved by the ways i have told above. Try them. Good Luck.

It could be the batteries. Connecting the camera to the computer drains the batteries faster.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.
If the pictures are safely downloaded to your computer, then you can safely erase the card by formatting (initializing) it in the camera. If they are not, then don't format (initialize). Take the card to a store like Walmart and use their picture kiosk machines to either print your pics or save them to a CD.
You caused a card conflict, or have corruption on the card.
Try this: Remove the battery from the camera. Remove the memory card, and re-insert. Install the battery back in the camera. Turn on the camera. In the setup menu or the equivalent for your camera, select the card options. Indicate for it to re-format, or re-initialize the memory card.
If the above does not work, you should call the support line for your camera.
It sounds like your XD card is corrupted. How and why i couldn't tell you. You will need to get the pictures recovered from the card using a special software (image recovery software, can down load for free from some web sites, or some companies can try and do it for you) and then try and format the card in the camera. DO NOT FORMAT THE CARD BEFORE YOU RETRIVE YOUR IMAGES. If you do all traces of the images may be lost.
