Re: Reading 4Gb Compact Flash
Download the pictures from the camera direct using the appopriate USB cable, you should have no problem then..
I had exactly the same issue, with my freinds camera, turned out that my card reader just didn't like the card, I got an external reader and that worked fine.

Verbatim compact flash card has over 200 photos corrupted files. I volunteered to take photos for local senior anniversary I was the main camera now, I have lost the content. Files are Dcim--JPO, POG and worse coded files not JPEGs and I even with trial acdsee repair I am unable to rename and restore these photo files. CVS photo was able to open some of the files with their program but advised we would need to find the proper recovery program to restore some of the files.HELP
You should be fine using an 8g card, but do however make sure it is a type I or II and although you asked about compact flash I might add that the XD M type cards are cheap BUT extremely slow so be careful what you go with. Where ever you get the card from check their return policy just in case there is an issue with it. Also might want to enusre your firmware is up to date before you try newer cards.
The problem stems from deleting some of the images from the PC. You need to copy all the files onto the PC, and delete all of them from the card on the camera. Then reformat the card on the camera. Then take 1 picture on the camera.
After you have just 1 new photo on the card, try copying the older files back onto the card in the same directory as the 1 new photo. This may work.
If it doesn't work, the problem may be with missing hidden thumbnail files. In that case you may not be able to get the photos to display on the camera again.
Not sure if this will help, but it seemed to fix my issue......I used a freshly charged battery. Removed both xD and Compact Flash memory from the camera. Powered on. You will see the menu flash and read that there is no card inserted. Power down. Place memory back in the camera. I can't explain my issue. The camera may have gone into a stand-by mode until the battery died and it just needed a reset? Anyway, hope this can be of use to someone. =0)
