    I was browsing Amazon and they don't seem to have much of a selection. The main two I need are CF and MMC. Any recommendations?

    There isn't all that much difference between the readers you'll find. Some do multiple formats, some don't. Some look snazzy, some don't. Essentially the only thing you want to make sure of is that its USB 2.0. Otherwise you're going to be in for a long wait when trasferring you're images.

    B&H is a good site. I'd recommend checking out ebay too.

    There are some that aren't supported under MacOS, so I'd try to get one of those Sandisk ones (which apparently needs no extra drivers under Windows or Mac).
