After trying different suggestions I inserted the c d that came with the camera while the transfer cable was still attached to the camera, and this seamed to solve the problem, the p c read the memory card and recognised the camera and all went well from there.

On most cameras, once you start to use the internal memory, the camera doesn't want to read a memory card. You need to go into the menu and "reset" the camera. Then, with no card in the camera, go into the menu and "format" the internal memory. Then, insert the card and "format" it. This will erase it so download any pics first.

Ok, here is something that just might work.
In your case the problem is not with the card but rather with your camera's card reader. This is a rather hard problem to fix yourself but here is what you can do.
Open the card slot of your camera and peer inside with a sharp light or torch. You should see a little metal tab or switch inside the card slot. This is the write protection switch. Contrary to popular belief , the switch on the card does not impact the operation of the card itself but rather tells the camera that the card should be locked by depressing the little pin inside.
If you put a protected card into a camera with no protection switch , the card would operate normally.
However , with time and repeated use , the switch will start to bend slightly until it will no longer depress when a unlocked card is inserted.
With a toothpick or needle , slightly and very gently push this tab up a little bit. (some camera's will require you to pull the tab down), This will allow the switch to operate once again and should solve your problem.
