Hello Everybody, can someone please suggest a fast usb 2.0 pocket microdrive reader/writer (preferable to be purchased through an internet retailer: Amazon, Buy, etc.) I would like to use it with a Hitachi 6 GB Microdrive.

I am looking for a small microdrive reader that I can fit in my pocket, that is a fast USB 2.0reader/writer that houses and protects the Microdrive inside the reader/writer.

I like the Media Gear XtraDrive for CompactFlash I and II (it houses the card inside the reader/writer drvice,) but on their website they state that this reader/writer only supports a microdrive up to 1 GB and I have a 6 GB Microdrive. Are they compatible? Anybody using the Media Gear XtraDrive with a high capacity microdrive (bigger than 1 GB.)

Are there any other models that fit the criteria I am looking for. I also liked the SanDisk CF Type I/II ImageMate USB 2.0 Reader/Writer (Model SDDR-92-A15,) ZIO CORP CAMERAMATE READER/Writer (DM-25400,) and the Crucial Hi-Speed USB CompactFlash Card Reader/Writer <However, I am not sure if these pocket microdrive readers/writers can fully HOUSE the microdrive like the above Micro Gear XtraDrive does, and if they are compatible with greater than 1 GB Microdrives.>
