Try cleaning the contacts on the memory card

Use a pencil eraser to buff the card's gold contact surfaces, blowing off any particles generated by the eraser before inserting the card into a reader. This will remove an inadvertent handling surface contamination problem on the contact areas that could be causing the read errors.
