Vista Ultimate 64x and USB Memory Problems

I used to have no problem with my various usb memory products and
vista apart from slow file copying but now whenever I insert anything
usb memory related I get the format question and if I do accept to
format then it just freezes and never completes.

I have a 2GB SD card that works fine on Windows XP and my Treo but
will not work with Vista and experience the format question everytime
it is plugged in.

I have a stylus 820 olympus camera with 1 gb XD memory and it will not
work with Vista - get the same format message. This camera works
immediately with XP and I have no problems.

This is definitely a huge bug with Vista and I can see from other
postings on the web that this is an issue for some other people as
well.

Is there anyway to fix this really annoying problem?

I should add that if I try to format in ntfs the sd card will work
fine. Also if I try to format the SD card from the command line for
fat with either quick option or full format it will work and say
format completed but then immediately pop up the card not recognized
would you like to format ordeal? So is this a problem with Vista 64x
and Fat? How long has Fat been around, you'd think MS would have a
handle on this by now?

Well I fixed my own problem by checking and repairing the system files
using the command SFC /scannow. In the log it detected and fixed
corrupt fat related system files. Its all working fine now. Hope
this helps someone else with this problem
