Really cheap considering the job that it does and always ready for use. I would not be without it. I recommend that you purchase it, you will not be disappointed.
I have found that it works well for both reading and writing images to the xD picture card.
It has four slots for a wide range of media.
There is one green LED light which lights up and flashes when data is being read or written.
It comes with a CD-ROM which includes a driver and some other useful software.
Windows XP already has 'native support' for this device so it will work without installing the driver, however it is recommended that you do, so that you get customised icons to easily identify the different card slots which show up as four different drives on your computer.
It comes supplied with a USB cable and a paper user manual.
I have found this product easy to use and that it works well.
A good buy - 5 stars.
If you search on Belkins support page the only answer it has is that it doesn't support >1Gb but they will bring out a future product that will.
For me this was a waste of money.
Very easy to use,
Reads a staggering number of different memory systems,
Drivers install quickly [I would recomend you do this even though you don't have to on some OSs],
Icons and file storage easy to understand and
It looks attractive sitting upon your desk.
One thing you may want to know is that it didn't work at all when I plugged it into a PC that only supported USB 1.
Build quality is rock-solid, and cards fit snug and locate positively.
I use Apple Macintosh, and as usual, this product just plugs in and does it's stuff. Didn't even need to examine the guides or get the driver disk out.
Have tried with XD, SD, CFII, Microdrive and SmartMedia, ranging from 32Mb up to 1Gb-all work as advertised.
And the ability of this reader to mount multiple drives at once SOUNDS odd, but it's actually quite handy.
Speed is good for a USB2 device (although I do have a Firewire CF reader, which is a lot faster). But, overall, a huge increase in speed over connecting your camera direct to computer.
Be careful if you want to move data between different types of cards on the fly though, as (at least) one of the slots is overloaded i.e. one of the slots takes two different types of card, so sharing between them would not be possible. This isn't really a problem though, since even if you end up in this situation it's easily solvable by copying the data to your HD and then swapping cards to write it onto the new card.
I've had it working fine with a 2GB Compact Flash card and it's been fine on the USB 1 port of my iMac.
It's a nice little reader but out of date. You're probably better off getting something more up to date that can handle more.
