Hi:

I bought this one

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/External-USB-2...QQcmdZViewItem

some time ago but "direct" from Hong Kong. It is "cheap", in all senses of the word but it works fine.

I have 3 different makes and bought each of my daughters a different model and have recommended a couple dozen others to friends and have yet to see the first one that does not work.

If you use XP do not load any drivers ..for the other OS follow the directions.

i bought one of these for $0.99 on ebay (can't beat the price!), and it works perfectly. it's a read/write device, which means i use it toreadFZ20 image filesfrom my SD card, and also to write files back onto the card when i need to take files into a print shop.basically turns my SD cards in to USB flash drives... it works flawlessly both ways. the only issue i've had is that it doesn't like one of my cards, an older Lexar 256MB card that i don't use anyway. it's small - 54mm x 38mm x 10mm thick -andneeds no connection other than the USB port on my PC. if you have Windows XP, no need for drivers, just plug it in, and the computer recognizes it.

I have the Dazzle reader, works well for me and accepts5-6 kinds of cards. (If you can find them in stores, they are an older model and may be on clearance.)
