SDHC card won't read in windows xp

I recently purchased an 8gb SDHC memory card. When i plug it into my computer, (either in the slot on my laptop or the built in reader on my desktop, or my usb sd reader) and double click on the icon in windows explorer, it either says, "Please insert disk in Drive F:", "The disk in Drive F: is not formatted, Would you like to format it now?" If I respond yes, it fails. or sometimes it will just hang and eventually say "(Not Responding)" in the explorer window's title bar, when i exit the window my desktop disappears (all except the background image), until i remove the sdhc card from the slot.

I added the hotfixes KB923293 & KB934428 which are both apparently supposed to fix this problem, but the system still performs as though they are not there (they are, verified in Add/Remove Programs)

Are there any other hotfixes I need, or another way to get xp to recognize my sdhc card?

i think your card is bad; since it does not work on 2 systems.
you can still try it on another one(Vista), or buy another card

i forgot to mention the card works fine in my digital camera, and if i  hook it to  the computer via the camera and usb cable, i can access it in windows explorer

are you using the same reader when you get the error?   then that's the problem - reader bad

no, the problem occurs on three different readers, it wont read under xp on my built-in reader on my laptop, under xp on my built-in reader on my desktop, or under xp or vista in my usb sd reader, and my 1gb, 2gb, and 4gb SD cards work in all three readers in xp, but the 8gb SDHC card still crashes

maybe those readers cannot read 8 GB cards - check the documentation

after updating the firmware on the built in reader on my desktop, it works! also my other 8gb chip came in the mail today with a sdhc usb reader which works fine as well, looks like youre right, the readers couldnt read the card. Thanks for the help.
