No specific solution, but the "experts" recommend the following:
-when you download photos always COPY them to your hard drive, don't
MOVE them.  Similarly, don't delete the old files from your card in your
downloader connected to the computer, but rather put the card back in
the camera to delete the photos. If you delete files via your computer
you can disrupt the format of the card.

I had a similar problem with "smartmedia" and the above resolved it.  Of
course it is always possible that the card's contacts are dirty, or that
the card is faulty, but the latter is not common.
