"Drive is not formated" message???
My laptop has an SD card slot and reader built into it. it reads a card used in a Kodak camera but not my Nikon D50...
I installed the software that came with the camera because I figured it needed a special driver or something. Nothing seems to work.
When I use the USB cable, no problem. any ideas or suggestions?

I assume that your laptop is running Windows XP.
I also assume that you have a 2GB or smaller card that was formatted in your camera.
If the above are both correct there is no reason why the laptop should not be able to read the card and there is (was) no need to install any software.
Does the card show up as a drive letter in Windows Explorer after it is inserted into the slot on the laptop?

you are correct on all counts. but the card does not show up in explorer when in the SD card slot. I can read it when the camera is connected via USB. very confusing... thank you..

I've encountered a similar thing with a CF card. I have 3 card readers capable of reading CF cards but one of them doesn't seem to like one of my CF cards (the card works fine in the camera and the other 2 readers though).
