This zip file contains the original smprep.exe supplied with my Jessops card reader (Zio clone), plus the two kludged versions needed to panorama-enable non-Oly SM cards.

Use at your own risk. This is for Smartmedia (not Xd) and may not work correctly with other readers.

The problem is you have to get the RIGHT SMPrep for your card reader. If it's not on the disc that came with the reader, check out the manufacturer's website.

Have to add a caveat though that not all readers have an SMPrep version for their reader.

No, just a card reader! The Dazzle brand comes with it, and there are many others. Just inquire before you buy.

I use a Belkin SM reader, and it too came with SMPrep. I was tempted to buy one of those multi-card readers, until I read that it might not come with SMPrep if my card became unusable. I couldn't find any info about SMPrep at Imation's site.
