The SD card contains video footage. I checked it out on the camera and I can view the files perfectly. When I want to view on my PC via a A USB card reader, the PC asks me to format the isc to enable me to view.

It could be a faulty card reader so try a different one.

could be the camera using a unsupported file format. read the manual to see how to transfer files.

It could be that your SD card is of a 'family' that is not supported by your reader.
SD cards can be SD, SDHX, SDXC, or SDIO. A reader only capable of SD or SDHC will not be able to read an SDXC card. AN SDXC capable reader is backwards compatible and would read SD, SDHC, and SDXC.

I agree with popatim. Just to be safe, I would hook your camera up to the PC and transfer the files that way if possible via USB, or whatever.
