    Extreme PRO CFast 2.0 Reader/Writer is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 27.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mounts cards in wrong mode! Unlike Lexar CFast card readers, or any other CF/SD card reader I have ever used before, this card reader mounts the memory cards in hard drive mode and not in external disk modes. This means that at least on the Mac, software (any photo software I have tested) doesn't recognize that a card has been inserted, and you have to manually import the files. This is super tedious. Get the Lexar card readers instead.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Problems I am having the same problem--mounts cards in wrong mode! MThis card reader mounts the memory cards in hard drive mode and not in external disk modes. Also, there seems to be issues with the cards getting corrupted. San Disk has an app to reformat the cards regularly. Clearly not ready for prime time. Reader also seems built cheap.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from garbage don't buy As noted by other users the reader mounts as an external disk drive on both Mac and PC. This prevents image download applications such as Adobe Bridge to see and download the images from the card, user has to do it manually which is extremely annoying. If you have many images shot at different date/times you have to manually copy them one by one from the card. I am going to toss this

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Same problem! It mounts as an hard drive! Yes it does have the problem of mounting the card as an hard drive. So Photo Mechanic does not recognize the card and I have to import the pictures manually...It shouldn't do that. Not ready for prime time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extreme PRO CFast 2.0 Reader/Writer I use this CFast 2.0 reader to transfer videos in the field and in the studio. When my CFast cards are full, I transfer the data straight to an external hard drive and work with the footage from there. Extremely reliable and fast. ***Restart your computer if your machine does not recognize the reader***

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Incompatible & Poorly Designed This Sandisk CFast card reader well not reliably read Lexar CFast cards. It also mounts in hard disk mode, so editing programs do not recognize it. And on top of these show-stopping features, it is built really cheap and feels flimsy. Stay far, far away from this one...

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quirky on Mac OS X This is a qualified one star: the reader works perfectly well except for one thing but for me, that one thing is a show-stopper. On OS X, a CFast 2.0 card in this card reader will appear as an external hard drive. SanDisk have confirmed this behavior. This prevents the card reader working with some applications that expect cards to appear as removable media and not an external hard drive. The OS X Image Capture application is one example: it will not see a CFast 2.0 card mounted using the SanDisk reader. I use Image Capture - along with a helper application - to automate the copying and renaming of files. Other applications (e.e., Lightroom and OS X Photos) will work with the SanDisk reader but not as smoothly as with other card readers. If this isn't an issue for you, then the card reader is great: small, light and, so far, reliable. I use it for copying Canon C200 raw video files from CFast cards and for that it's great. However, I'm going to return it, as it doesn't work for my still photography workflow, where I need the CFast cards to be seen by OS X as memory cards and not hard drives.
