    Hi! I'm hoping that someone might be able to shed some light on a problem that I'm having with my new memory card. When I bought my new camera it came with a Lexar 8Gb SDHC card, the problem is that when I put it in my laptop to upload the pictures it comes up with a threat alert from Avast saying that it has detected a virus/worm but when I scan the laptop it doesn't pick anything up, its only when I put this card in (it drives me nuts) Just seems a bit strange bearing in mind it was a new card, has anyone else had a similar problem and if so how did you get around it? Any advice would be great! Thankyou :D

    Never had that problem...

    Are you sure it's new (was it in the original packaging)? Did you format it?

    Formatting?

    Won't hurt at all (as long as there is nothing on the card you want to keep).
