    I'm getting more and more fed up with my Lexar Professional Workflow CF card reader not being reliably detected by my MacBook Pro (2012 retina).
    Has anyone found one that reliably works?

    Try swapping out the cable for another one, if you haven't done that already. I had the same problem you're experiencing, and was ready to scrap the Lexar. It was frustrating.

    Then I tried a new cable and since then, it's been perfect.

    Thanks for that. I bought an amazon basics cable, and it's much better
