"I have a problem with my 4 GB SD card. When I connected it to my PC via a card Reader, the computer always asked me to format it"

That may be the Autoplay option - it doesn't immediately recognise the file system, so offers to convert it to something it can use.

Try opening Explorer, and navigating to the card, and see what it finds; there's a good chance that you'll find your pictures in a folder on the card. Then select all, and copy to a folder of your choice. Then use the "Safely remove hardware" option and disconnect the card reader.

I would also recommend disabling Autorun on removable drives for security reasons.
