memory cards crash computers

Specs: Windows XP
So I've got two computers, a laptop and a desktop, both running XP about 4 or 5 years old. I have two 2GB SD cards and one 8GB SDHC card that I use with a Kodak ZI6 video camera. I make a lot of videos in my free time and it's something I like to do a lot. I've had the camera for a few months and it worked great. I bought my first SDHC card and when I used it in either computer it completely crashed the thing and after some research learned my motherboard was too old to support it, which is understandable. The other two SD memory cards I had worked fine for a while. In September after I came back from a trip with hours and hours of video. I found that when I plugged my memory cards in several different ways no matter what my computer froze and I had to kill it: using the SD card slot on the computer or leaving the card in the camera and utilizing the USB hookup on the camera. I used a temporary solution by borrowing a newer computer and putting the files on there, then transferring them to my computer using an external hard drive as the middle man. I haven't got a chance to try a different memory card besides my three on the computers, but it does work on my friend's newer one running Vista purchased within the last year. Any help would be really appreciated because this is killing me.

Laptop: 2 gigs RAM, Webroot, symantic, Norton, Aol comp check up and spyware protection, search and destroy
Desktop: ATI radeon card, 2.5 gigs RAM, same antivirus

Both have Service pack 3 and legal installation

I am kind of stumped here. It has been like years since computers only supported mmc cards. Your computers ought to support them I'd think.

Anyway start with the event logs. They should have a clue as to what is going on.

I'd almost be worried that some virus is on them but usually cameras don't do that.

Be sure to put a folder on every flash card and usb you have named autorun.inf. Only a few cards or flash drives would have a legitimate autorun.inf file.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?
