Best fix for this is to purchase a Card Reader and step around downloading from the camera. A card Reader is looked at by the computer as an external storage device. You place the memory card into the card reader and down load from there. Don't forget to stop or safely disconnect or eject before removing your memory card. Once you have placed the memory card back into the camera Format the memory card to give the camera a fresh clean surface to work with again.
What is happening is that the firmware of the camera is no longer compatible with the "new" software from the computer.
Even though you may not have updated the software in the computer if it's hooked to the Internet then sometimes there is auto updated and these are what sometimes causes the problem with incompatibility.
Also if you haven't updated the camera Firmware now would be a good time to look see what Canon has to offer as free updates in Firmware for your camera it's a free update.
First, I suggest that you have to clean you memory card using soft and dry cloth after that try to format it again and save it.
After you formatted your memory card, now try to upload it to your computer. Sometimes memory card wont work because is not formatted for the camera used you said that you already formatted it before, possible that you forgot to save all the settings and formatting that you've done before.
I hope this information can help you to resolve your issues.
Without knowing what make or model of your camera I can't research its memory capacity. A 32GB SD card is a massive amount of memory for most if not all point and shoot cameras one problem may be that your camera doesn't have the firmware to support this card. One other thing is the SDHC is a new style card and if you are not aware it has a lock on the side of it I'll include a diagram. The lock needs to be pushed towards the top of the card in the direction of the gold contacts. Once this is done you will also need to see if you can format the card in the camera you are going to use it in. If it formats then it'll work if it doesn't format then it won't work unbtil you update your camera firmware.
Please try to take out your memory carrd and format it in your PC. there after save some files/photos to the meory card to test the memory. Format it once again and reinsert into yourr camera. If this wont work ther is a fault within the camera processor controller which may require help. replace memory card if otherwise. Hope you try. Good day

DaddyCass, I'd like to recommend to you that you put in new, not bought recently, or just charged, but new "Alkaline" batteries - don't skimp out on the black Eveready or the red ones (Energiser and Duracell are good).
Do this to be sure, because it really sounds like a power problem, and if you are using rechargables, you're rechargeables may be on the way out, supplying enough power to run low-powered items, but not enough for a high-load item like a digital camera.
Try this and let us know what eventuates.

try doing a format with the camera. check your manual to see how to do this with your camera. Beware, formatting will erase anything on the card. i actually had the same problem with my camera, and this worked for me. Sometimes new flash cards are not compatible off the shelf--they need to be formatted. You should have at least flash cards to be sure card is not defective. Let me know if this helps!
