Question about Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera
I can upload pictures from an external hard drive but not from my camera. I haven't had any problems with this for 2 years, but now, all of a sudden, it's not working. I even tried removing the memory card and inserting it into the computer, but the computer won't read that either.

Sounds like a corrupt card Sometime a format may help but you will loose all the images on the card.

SOURCE: Camera won't read memory card!
Hi there and welcome to FixYa. There could be a couple of things off the top of my head that could be giving you the problem, so we'll try solutions for them both.
A) Go into the menu of your camera and format your cards. Your camera won't save pictures to a card properly if you don't format it first. - Go into the Setup menu for this. And remember, you have to format the cards in the camera, don't use your pc or a card reader.
B) The above will take care of your problem unless.... your cards are locked. SD cards have a switch on the side of them so you can lock the card (it prevents accidental erasure). In that case, unlock it with the switch on the side. Let me know with a comment if you have any questions or problems, or if either of these solutions doesn't do the trick.

When you fist connect the camera, the computer performs an initial scan of all the images on the card. This can take a while with slower cards and if there is a lot of images, slower again. Sometimes an error on the card may even slow things down as well. If you manage to get your pictures off the card, try formatting it using the format option in the cameras menu and see if that improves perfomance. Otherwise a better card may be in order.

try formatting the card once on a pc and then plug it in your camera....if that does not help either, you'll have to try a different card.

Remove the memory card from the camera. Note that there is a small slide switch on one of the long edges of the card. Slide the switch to unlock or lock the card.

I'm guessing you bought a new 4GB SDHC card. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the card uses is very different. If your camera is more than a few couple years old, it's likely it was designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, but a SDHC card will not work with older cameras.
For older cameras, you'll need to use standard SD cards (usually those 2GB or less). But if you really want to use a 4GB card, do a Google search for 4GB SD "non HC", with the non HC in quotes. Believe Transcend makes one.
