    Ok all my Windows based desktops and laptops had some sort of media reader, so with Apple excluding them, I did not want to have a desk full of peripherals so I found something that may benefit everyone, because not only is it a Media Card reader, but it is an External Case for 3.5 inch hard drives so I killed all the Birds with one Stone, also this is like having a USB Hub as well, so now I can backup up to 750 GB of data from all my macs to this External Case, and when I need a media reader especially for my Canon Rebel XTi Whala here it is. I have two of them, so they are around the $60.00 price range at BestBuy but well worth the $ however you can find them for $20-$30 on eBay.

    I just hope this helps anyone that was in my situation or makes some a happy camper.

    Good Luck All.

    well you can buy cards for this express card slot thingy, that what most of my friends do for their dslr's and what not. But a good find nonetheless.

    nice find.
    I have USB Hub/Card Reader/iPod charger all in one from Belkin or Griffin. It is a nice many-in-one too.

    Only one of Apple's six systems offers an Express Card slot...
