Default Compact Flash to Memory Stick?

I am considering buying the following:
-------------------------------------------------------------------
SANDISK CF-MEMORY STICK USB COMBO READER

ImageMate Dual Readers provide the ability to write data to
and read data from flash memory without connecting your
digital device (digital camera, handheld computer, digital
music player, etc.) directly to a computer.

This device reads both MemoryStick and CompactFlash cards.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Does this mean I can take pictures with my A70, transfer them
with the reader to the PC, transfer them back to a Memory
Stick, and view them using my Samsung DVD Player which has
a Memory Stick slot for viewing pictures on my widescreen TV?

Thanks in advance,

James

You can definitely copy files from CF to Memory Stick cards. The DVD player should be able to view them. For the best results you needn't bother shooting any higher resolution than 640x480 for TV viewing - no matter how big the screen is. The smaller 640x480 pics also load a lot faster in slow devices like DVD players.

Unless you are shooting exclusively for TV viewing and know that you will never want to print the photos, I'd sugest that you shoot at the highest possible resolution and downsizing with your photo editor. Same result for TV viewing and gives you more options.

Thanks!

I am aware of that. Actually, I did not choose the
camera based on whether or not I could view the
pictures on the TV. It just happens to be a bonus
that I came across when looking for a card reader.
When I saw the description a little light went on. LOL!
And having it confirmed is great news.
