AFAIK there are currently Firewire and eSATA mac-capable ExpressCard/34s, possibly several others.

I currently have a 2xFW400 SIIG ec34, and will be buying the FirmTek eSATA one.

I have a flash memory reader. It reads basically everything apart from Compact Flash.
I'd love to get one that read Compact Flash, but I haven't been able to find much. Where did you get yours & who makes it?

Erm, I said it reads everything apart from Compact Flash. You can't fit a CF card into the slot (well you can, just sideways) so I don't think it's going to be possible to get a CF reading ExpressCard/34.

I got mine here. I notice they do sell a CF reader but it's for the larger ExpressCard/54 standard.
