Should I be concerned that this volume is dirty?
I booted my computer the other day with my SD card reader plugged in with an SD card in it. During the boot Windows XP checked the drive and gave information about it, including the report that the volume is dirty. I ran chkdsk but it doesn't seem to have any problems. Does this need any attention, or are SD cards always "dirty"?

I wouldn't worry about it. If you can still read your SD cards and download the pictures, then the loader or slot is ok. As for chkdsk, it only checks your hard drive, and really doesn't do a good job of that. The old Scan Disk was better. As for the volume is dirty bit, that is most likely because the computer had no way of really knowing what was going on. Not quite the same as when you leave a 3 1/2" floppy in and try to boot up.
