UPDATE!!!!!
The SD card reader is working again for whatever reason.
I have obtained my late brother's KN7 and will sell mine, as his has had very little use.
I also have about five other cards with a lot of data on them and will back them up for safety in future.
Following all of your advice I should be able to save the corrupted cards by copying my existing back-up card thru my computer, if I have understood you correctly and may not need to accept Mike's offer of assistance (Thanks Mike).
(Incidentally, my PC crashed on Monday without any back-up. I have now learned a nasty lesson, and it will not happen again as I will save all of my data to another hard drive. I did not lose everything , but it is warning enough to change my ways.
Also I have been advised to not remove the SD card while KB is turned on, which ensures that the reader will work effectively all the time using that process.
A big thank you to you all for the help and advice during this "saga"

Great news Ray, I have lost data before and you know that saying "It will never happen to me!!!" so the best practice backup and backup again,I even have a separate USB Hard drive just for my KN stuff,It was not too expensive but when I look at all the files I could not replace,the price was well worth it.
Best regards John.

For additional protection backup your files to The Cloud, as it is separate (And a great distance) from where you have your computer and backup stored.

Thanks , John and Bill.

Bill, your English Riviera is no match for any part of the

Australian coastline, just ask all the "Poms" who live here (ha ha)!!!

Good news. My contacts are safe and all my e-mails relating to a golf competition of which I am The President (VIP, car spot and free lunches). I can live with the rest which I will restore at my leisure, and watch out for those sharks Bill!!
