    Hello just bought me a fine lookin' Canon EOS 350D to take some snaps with. I'm in a bit of a situation. It doesnt seem to mount, I was told by a friend to get a 6-1 card reader. Anyone have any recommendations on a "Mac-esq" one? Price no object...etc.

    Thanks

    p.s. Must read a SANDISK CFII

    If you need a new photo printer, almost all HP's now come with 7-in-one readers built in, plus a USB port on the front for PictBridge.

    If not, then just go on Amazon.com and get a nice 12-in-one USB2 reader. Any will do.

    I don't think there's a ton of difference in them. I'd make sure it's USB2 for the speed and also try and find one with deep channels for the cards to slide into. I've had bad luck with the shallower ones in that it seems easier for me to misalign the cards while inserting them, thereby messing up the pins in the reader. Maybe it's just me, but the deeper well units seem to make this less likely.

    Anyone have a recommendation of a Firewire CF reader? I don't have USB 2.0 on my iMac G4.

    Hi, I've got a Swann 11-in-1 card reader/writer (USB 2.0)

    it supports:
    Compact Flash I and II
    IBM Micro Drive
    Smart Media
    Secure Digital
    MMC
    SR MMC
    Memory Stick
    MS Pro
    MS Magic Gate
    XD

    it's lovely and small and the nice aluminium design goes with the powerbook!
    no drivers required, it just works with the mac :)

    and as it's a writer as well you can erase data from it too

    I bought mine from Cancom for under £20.

    There are a few but I believe SanDisk just announced a new version of theirs last week.

    That IO Gear works awesome and buy.com has it cheap... plus it looks sweet too.

    i can vouch for that one. it kicks ass, although i mainly use it as a hub rather than a card reader (cheaper than the 7 port and it has card slots built in so meh)

    Lexar has a FW unit for you and might be in an Apple store (was by my house) if not try Amazon they have it as it was between that one or the 12-in-1 Sandisk (USB 2, so won't work for you) not to bad of a $$$
