I use 1GB xD cards in my camera for work. I have yet to find a portable card reader for the xD format that can actually read/download my 1GB cards. I am having to hook my camera via USB cable in order to get a good download. Most readers work only with 128MB or 512MB cards. I'd liked something small that I can hold to a USB port on my Dell laptop or through the PCI card slot. Also due to the number of pictures I take many times in a very short span of time) using 128MB cards to solve the problem is out of the question. In fact I'd be using 2GB xD cards if they made them. I am also hoping to be able to download a full 1GB card in say 5 minutes. Now it takes about 12 minutes. I have USB 2.0 ports and 512MB on board memory on the laptop and PCI card slot.
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
