From Microsoft support:
Some Secure Digital (SD) cards do not work correctly on Windows XP-based computers. Additionally, you may notice a yellow exclamation mark (!) next to the SD card in Device Manager.
This problem may occur even though you have applied other hotfixes that are required for high-capacity SD card support. For more information, click the following article numbers to view the articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
923293 The 923293 hotfix adds support for SD High Capacity memory cards in Windows XP
934428 Hotfix for Windows XP that adds support for SDHC cards that have a capacity of more than 4 GB
This model came out before the picture transfer protocol (PTP) was developed for direct interface between digital cameras and Windows/Mac computers. Also, there are no drivers available for anything newer than Windows XP. Your best option is to purchase a USB card reader ($10 or less) that can accept a CF card. You just take the card out our your camera, plug it in to the reader, and Windows 'sees' the card as another drive on your system. You can then view and download the photos.
