      Bought this item about a year ago and works great for allcards. I've used Smart Media, Compact Flash and SecureDigital in this reader. Works for everything except SecureDigital cards 2GB and larger. I just upgraded to a 2GB cardand it doesn't recognize it. Contacted Belkin tech supportand they said this unit is not compatible with the newer,higher capacity cards. Works for all others though.

      Expertise: IT professional, novice photographer

      Problems Encountered: Doesn't recognize SD cards 2GB and larger.

          Seems to work well, but doesn't seem to be constructed all that well. Very light, thin, and "plasticky". I know it's just a card reader, but, it seems like it could be easily "smashed".

            Its hard to get excited over a card reader, but this one works well for my compact flash I and II cards. Otherwise, it failed on my mini 16gb flash, but worked on the 1 gb mini. Go figure. Will have to sort that out. East as sin to set up, almost no effort whatsoever.

                        This only worked for 2 weeks, and then was unable to be properly detected by my computer for use. After reloading software from provided disk multiple times, and a few calls to tech help, I gave up.

                        This card reader will not read all brands of Smart Media cards and will not read SD cards over 2GB. It also seems like it is made cheap and comes with a installation cd which is really stupid.

                                            Have a MacBook,thought I needed to download some software fix to use because it seemed set up for Microsoft. NOPE, just plugged it in and it worked fine!

                                                I got this in order to read SDHC 32 GB cards from my video camera. The device didn't recognize the cards. Had it shipped back.

                                                  Its a simple product, but works really well, fast and looks good. Great price too.

                                                    When I come back from an assignment I take my card from the camera, put it in the slot and it automatically launches the program to ingest. It is sooooo small. It almost gets lost on my desk. Love it.

                                                      Much faster than download from the camera. Multiple card capability is nice feature for cards in my wife's camera. Worth the space in my camera bag when we travel.

                                                          This seems to do what you want it to do, unfortunately, it will not recognize SD cards over 1 or 2 GB Says this nowhere on the package and it will simply not read my larger card. Useless!

                                                          This is more than likely the only card reader I will ever need. It is light yet robust, consistently reliable, easy to use, and permits the fast transfer of files.
