    I reiterate. That 6 bucks will pay you back in no time cuz. I only mentioned sony because their sd cards are proprietary and physically built different than normal sd flash cards. At least from what I saw at my Walmart mini store in Pecos. Maybe sony cards are different every where else. I won't buy one here.

    Some cameras (older ones) and voice recorders may come with older xd flash cards if you get unlucky when buying something in NYC. Which is likely with a hard sell. That was why I linked you to a xd card reader that also reads cf cards also. Besides other card formats like mmc and such.

    Even if you don't need it for your video or voice gear. The 6.00 card reader enhances what your desktop is capable of imputing and and reading and writing to.
    You asked for Gizmos. Mine was the cheapest recommend by far. Plus. Not just limited to cameras or voice recorders. Plus it is transferable between computers.
    I know because I have a few boxes.

    Thanks Roky! There isn't a Walmart store close to Staten Island and the item you linked is not available on line.
    I was thinking about purchasing this when I finally decide which camera to get.
    Iogear SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Multi-Card Reader/Writer GFR381 B&H

    After getting bug-eyed looking at so many digital cameras I decided that, for now, I would just get one of those point and shoot ones
    to keep with me while walking around and until I get the hang of digital photography.

    The clerk at B&H phoeo gave me 30 days to return the Fuji T400 camera, and the Aluratek SDXC-SDHC-Micro Sd-MiniSD Usb 2.0 Multi-Media card reader that I bought this morning if I could not get them to work with my computer!!

    Sounds like a good place to keep shopping if they have other things you might want. Good job.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
