    I am actually thinking of getting an adapter that will have the SD card flush with the card reader when it is fully inserted, does such an adapter exist?

    Does anyone know if the Delkin eFilm ExpressCard 34 6 in 1 Adapter has a slot that is deep enough to have the SD card flush? I own the Griffin and sadly not SDHC compatible.

    Yes it is, flush and works with SDHC as I am using it right now to take pictures and put them on eBay.

    Could you post a picture on here of how it looks in the computer with an SD card in (sitting flush)?

    Where can one purchase the Delkin eFilm ExpressCard 34 6 in 1 Adapter? Do they carry it at the apple store? Or is it only available online? I searched the usual store websites (best buy, circuit city, compusa) with no luck.

    It is not that flush, it kind of sticks out a little.

    There is this seller on eBay. Global Memory or something.

    Great prices.

    How much is a little?

    I've got this idea of using an Expresscard 34 SSD (probably the 8GB Lexar as it's only $99 from Dell) as a low-voltage disk for playing movies / running portable apps while I'm on battery; similar to a permanent USB-flash drive or something. An 8GB Fat32 drive would be great as a "drop box" for OS X / Windows. The SSD doesn't stick out of the slot very much (if at all really) from the pictures I've seen. That means that it could stay in the slot all the time without worrying about being damaged

    At the same time, however, I also need a card reader for my SD (Phone & Wii) /Memory Stick (Camera) cards. An EC/34 card reader + an 8GB SDHC card would be about the same price as the Lexar SSD, and it would allow me the flexibility of actually removing the SDHC card and using it for my other flash storage needs. But I really don't want to use the reader + SDHC option if the card is going to stick out far enough (to where it might be damaged). I know that flash cards in the Griffin card reader do not sit flush

    It would be really great if the Delkin card reader (or others) did sit flush (opting for the click-action insert and release) rather than the little "bump" that holds the card in on some readers. If not, I may spend the money on the Lexar drive and just buy a cheap card reader.
