OK, sorry for the list noise - you confirmed a suspicion that I had
after subsequently trying the camera on my windows box and getting
nowhere just as quickly.

I dug my reader out of the trash this morning as a last-resort, and I'll
see if I can snag something a little more reliable from work. I prefer
using the reader as well, as it's faster and more convenient.

Just needed something for the short term, until I can get a CF card
reader that doesn't have a history of hosing CF cards!
