A Good Card reader
      #19279 - 02/21/05 05:37 AM

I'm looking to purchase a good multi-card reader for my computer and looking for any recommendations

It must be able to read: SD cards and CF cards. (this is so I can have faster write speed to my expansion cards)

Should I just go to my local BestBuy.. or go on ebay and get what they have priced cheapest?


Crave the most features?

As long as you're running an OS that has built-in drivers for card readers (Windows XP and Mac OS X) then get any one you like. If you have an older OS and thus must depend on the drivers included with the device, get a name brand one as the no-name ones often come with horrible drivers.

I actually have a card reader that works fine when just reading/writing to the PC, however, if I transfer files to an SD card, then try to read it on my T3 it shows up as random garbage. It was some random 7-in-one from Costco that I got for reading my smartmedia cards for my camera originally and works just fine for that, but my T3 just can't seem to read any SD card I write to. As a result I spent a bit of money on a nice Sandisc 12-in-one card reader that works excellent for everything.

Not sure if that is relevant, however, the 'cheapy' card reader was not a good choice for my SD card purposes.
