Odd!

1.You're not getting admin privaleges messages, are you?
2. What is your camera model?
3. Can you copy the pictures to your pc?
4. try opening any picture viewer program you have installed, then, navigating to your SD card and viewing the pics - does this work? If not, what message do you get?

I ran into the same problem today! It took me forever to figure it out but it ended up being very simple. I accidentally had the camera mode set to "clipboard" when I was taking the pictures. This saves the pictures to the camera and not the SD card. I had to select each picture individually and save it to the SD card on the camera before transferring the SD card to the computer.

GOT IT!!!!

Your pictures are not on the SD card, but on the camera itself. In order to view them. Remove the SD card, then attack the camera to the PC via USB cable
