SDHC cards

So, I just bought a new digital camera and saw that there was an 8 GB SD card on sale for $14.99. I'm impressed and bought the card. Now I find out that this is a new type SD card which will work in my new camera and my old camera but neither my laptop nor desktop will read the card. Neither computer will recognize this card, no fault messages or anything. Each computer just sits there as if I have done nothing, much less inserted a card with pictures on it. Further research tells me that I have to go out and buy a new type of card reader for this card that will attach to a USB port. Does anyone know any way to get Windows XP, SP3 to read these new cards? Thanks, David

Yup, buy a new card reader
Sorry, but the hardware is outdated
I have the same issue with my card reader
