1: Place it in a camera and connect your camera to the PC.
2: Buy a new card reader that does work.

I always connect my camera to Xfer files . . . it is just as easy and is my habit as soon as I get home.  Transfer and back up the files then charge the batteries; easy and safe way go.  Using a Canon 5D Mk III with redundant image saving to two memory cards it is easier than  moving multiple media.

Buy an inexpensive card/chip reader that plugs into a USB port

External card readers are not expensive.  To be safe, in case a friend has a different-sized card, for instance, get one which will read multiple sizes.
