I will be goin gon vacation for about a week. I have a 5 megapixel Sony camera. With a 256 card I bought and a 32 card that came with it I will have about 110 pictures I can take at it's top setting. Is there any way I can download these and pull then up at home at there full resolution. I do not have a laptop to take with me.

Re: Going on Vacation
There are portable harddrive devices for you to move your pictures to. Other devices will help you move them to a iPod as an example. They had varying degrees of success.
If available, the suggestion to move them from your camera media to CD is the lowest cost in the short run. You should consider getting a few more cards though too. That will give you more time between CD burning and in the event something goes wrong, your pics are spread between cards and not all on one.

these cards you mention for digital cameras are very very small!
Best thing you can do is purchase a card that is let's say at least 8gb.
this will allow you to take as many pictures as you like on your vacation.
The cards generally sell quite inexpensively at MicroCenter or Fry's, check both if you have them locally.
Most of these cards are SD HD, make sure your camera accepts these. Best thing is to take your camera along and test it right then and there.

This usually means the card needs to be formatted in the camera but, this will erase all your vacation pictures. First, try downloading your pictures to your computer using a separate card reader. If that doesn't work, take the card to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak picture maker machine. You can print your pictures or make a cd from them. Then you can safely format the card in the camera.
Is that card compatible with that camera. They make HD (high definition) cards (4gig and above) that will only work with newer camera's. Of course, i am speaking of SD cards. But the XD may have a similar feature. That is the exact error i got when i tried to use an HD card in my 5 year old camera. Try downgrading to a smaller memory card. Also, is that memory card exactly as the one you have had prior to this?
So as not to spoil your vacation, go buy yourself a new compact flash card locally. They should sell them anywhere electronics are sold, including WalMart, etc. See if you can get this new card to work in your camera. If so, then you can work on trying to get your current CF to work, by trying to format it in the camera.
If you can't get a new CF to work in the camera, then you likely damaged either the pins in the CF socket in the camera, or some switch that is pushed when the card is inserted (to tell the camera there is a card in it). It is unlikely you will be able to have this fixed during your vacation, unfortunately.
