This worked with my Lexas card from one Canon R5. Not with the Lexas card in my other R5. So, I am still stuck loading pictures directly from the camera to my laptop. Same issue I have had with other brands.

I bought this for my Sony 512GB CFexpress THOUGH Type B. It works perfectly with my card. It's the first time I use this type of cards and I don't want to go back to SD ones. The USB-C connection coupled with the speed of the card is incredible.

I am running win 10, every time I put the Cf card in the reader, it appears the reader goes to sleep? Is this correct, as the computer does not see the card and I have to pull the cable.
Asked by: Terry
Hello Terry, the card won't disconnect automatically even the reader goes to sleep. Could you help us cross check with other cards, cables or USB ports on your computer? If it won't work, please email us <[email protected]> - Dan

Why do you say it's a Type-C reader when the box pictured clearly says it's Type-B?
Asked by: Robert
The computer connection cable that plugs into the card reader is a Type-C, has nothing to do with the CFExpress card its self.
