    Need a little help here. My question is can a MicroSDHC reader (this one) read a MicroSDXC card (this one). From what I understand they are not backwards compatible but I wanted to be sure.

    So in the alternative does anyone know of a MicroSDXC reader that is as small as the MicroSDHC reader linked to above?

    Thanks in advance.

    You are correct that an SDHC reader will not read an SDXC card.

    I did a quick search on Amazon, and the Uspeed USB 3.0 SDXC Card Reader looks like it's in the right size range.

    Thanks, I am getting an MBA and was hoping to get an adapter that didn't stick out that much while I wait for my Nifty MiniDrive to arrive in November or December, but I guess I will just use the SD adapter included with the card until then. Thanks again for your response.
