Default Oops,

Sorry about that, but I guess if there is no such converter then the next best thing are these little parallel card readers.
After all, the price is so low (between $12-$20) bucks etc.

So even if there were converters, why even bother with em :?:

Why mess around on NT worrying about USB? - you can buy internal IDE readers - I assume the PC has a hard drive? . OK IDE is not as fast as USB2 but it's a fair alternative to USB1. The only prob. I once came across, was a poster on a work machine he couldn't get at. If you're not in this situation, think about an IDE reader. You can get pcmcia adaptors - but best to avoid as compatibility with motherboards isn't always guaranteed. VOX

That would work too, but then who wants to open their computers adding hardware internally just to be able to use a memory card?

Much easier with a parallel card reader.

My IDE card reader reads 6 card formats, occupies one 31/2" floppy slot, is accessible from the front of the pc and looks really neat without trailing wires, additional printer ports/ cards switches, allows access to the FAT12/16 card structure from Norton Utilities via the BIOS and cost about 25.00.

Well that's the way I would do it too, I hate a lot of wires etc.
But I imagine for most people they would not want to tear their
computers apart installing hardware only for the purpose of reading a flash card in an WinNT operating system..
Especially since the guy said that the WinNT computer is not even
his own. Kinda makes sense.
