Re: olympus xd-picture card
Go to windows explorer. open my computer on the tree. Look for drives other than 'C' drive. It will be on one of them. It could be listed as D, E, F or whatever your computer is set to name it. Sincle click through it. When you find your pictures, drag & drop them to where you want them.

You should make sure the memory card slot does not have dust in it and you should also try putting the memory card into another computer,to see if it will work if it do not work the memory card is bad.
Your memory card is damaged. Please try to get back your pictures at camera shop. But usually, nothing can done on defective memory card.
I suggest you to back your memory card files on your computer next time to prevent this problem.
you should be able to use windows explorer to find the memory card - it will be listed as another drive on the PC - most cameras will save the images into sub directories on the memory card - depending on how many images are save you may have multiple sub-directories.
you should then be able to copy the images off the card onto the PC.
goto Start>computer and see if you have the card listed - even without a card inserted, you should see the drives - possible called - SD/MMC and or memory stick - depending on what memory slots you have
It has a memory card slot (left-side towards the front), but your particular memory card might be too big for the slot. There are several different variations of memory cards out now. Of course the newer the variation, the smaller that card is. This laptop is fairly new so it might not be compatible with your memory card. Does your camera have a USB cable for transferring pictures? If so, then just use that.
The "odd shaped port" you are referring to is most likely:
The Express Card slot (replacing the slot known as “PC-Card” replacing the slot formerly known as “PCMCIA”) are the biggest standard slot on a laptop designed to handle stuff like wireless cellular modems with antenna and micro hard drives. Most people won’t ever use this slot, but it’s a lot faster than it’s old relatives now that it connects directly to PCI-Express. From: www.geek.com
Do NOT put your memory card from your computer into that slot. Since you have indicated that the USB cable connector option will not work, you will have to go out and buy a memory card reader that is compatible with you memory card. They are relatively inexpensive and easy to find at most electronics stores. Plug in the card reader (USB) and seat in your memory card and the OS of your laptop should detect the card and allow you to download the pictures.
When you put the card in the slot, you should see a window pop up. In that window click 'save as' and than name the pictures folder. Take nothe of where the computer says it is going to stor the pictures. Most likely under the 'My Pictures icon.'
When you go to craigslist and come to the point when you are ready to upload pictures, click 'add picture' or 'upload picture' or somrhing of that nature. You well be than see a window pop up, navigate to the 'My Pictures' folder or whereever you stored the pictures and click the picture you want to upload.
Good luck, if you need further help, let me know. And please rate my answer.
Most laptops that have a memory card reader will only read these types of cards, without needing an adaptor:
-Sony Memory Stick or Memory Stick Pro cards
However, you have a MS Pro Duo card, although it fits into the card reader slot, the card is a lot thinner than what's expected, so the laptop won't be able to read it.
You need to put the Pro Duo card into the stanard size MS Pro caard adaptor. See attached image.
Hope this helps.
