I had no idea that card readers were designed specifically for either USB1 or USB2. I just assumed that the only 2 varying factors were the speed of the flash card and the speed of the USB port, and the reader itself was irrelevant.

So does that mean that if I want to take full advantage of the speed of a USB2 port, I will also have to buy a specially marked USB2 card reader?

Yes, if the PC end is also USB2...

Also all CF cards read must faster than they write so speed is not really an issue while downloading, but uploading is (ie copy files/pictures from PC -> card)! :wink:
