try newegg or tiger direct.  seems i just saw a good one on sale.  doubt it was the xray, but a card reader is a good thing to have anyway.

Thanks everyone for taking the time to listen to my rants. It seems when I have a good thing going something goes wrong, Hum... kind of sounds like beekeeping!

Found this one at Newegg, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820223103&cm_re=card_reader_internal-_-20-223-103-_-Product
It looks ok, price looks ok, and lots of good reviews. I just dont know much about card readers. All my computers were built as gaming computers and now I dont even have one game on them  :'(.

Update: I brought home a new camera, not mine, and plugged it in to see if it would work. Plugged it in and it worked. So I guess my question now is: Is there something stored internally on a camera that lets the computer recognize it? Everything works except for the same two cameras that went through the airport security.
