    Any USB v2.0 CF reader.

    The SanDisk 6 -in- 1 and the 8 -in- 1 both read CF and SD cards and are USB v2.0.

    A USB 2.0 reader shouldn't have any problems (as the bus rate is 480 Mbps =
    60 MBps)
    nor should a firewire reader (bus rate 400 Mbps = 50 MBps) and the new,
    faster firewire
    is double that.

    No Go Just got an email from Sandisk. Q2 for the highspeed reader. Seems
    like current readers only support extreme II not III

    If you have a notebook PC, how about a PCMCIA card reader? B&H sells a
    really
    nice one (GC, I believe) that handles Type I, Type II and Microdrive. You
    might find
    out if it'll read Extreme III cards. MINE works fine with Microdrives and
    the Type I
    cards that I own (Delkin and standard Sandisk). FWIW, I have had Lexar and
    Sandisk
    readers and think much more of my generic GC PCMCIA reader. Maybe it is
    just the
    Sandisk reader that has a problem??? I know I bought and returned a Sandisk
    PCMCIA
    reader due to lack of compatibility with my microdrives.

    This would be an important factor for me, because I currently
    use a SCSI-interfaced PCMCIA reader in my Sun workstation, with (as it
    turns out) the Sandisk "CompactFlash PC Card Adaptor". (I've got other
    brands, which I have not yet tried in this device, but I suspect that
    there is little difference between them. I suspect that they are simply
    mounting for the flash card and the connectors at each end.)

    It works fine with anything from the 8MB card which came with my
    original Nikon CoolPix 950 up through the Lexar 1GB 80X cards which I am
    currently using.

    Yes -- the transfer is perhaps not as fast as a USB-2 reader on
    the Windows box -- but the Windows box takes longer counting the fact
    that I have to boot it (the unix boxen are up 24/7), download the
    images, and then transfer them over the net to the unix boxen where I
    work on them.
     

    Interesting.

    Enjoy,
    DoN.

    I am *very* dismayed to find out that the my SanDisk SDDR-91 (CF card only reader) will read
    the card but not at the full speed of 133x and my SanDisk SDDR-86 (6 -in- 1 reader w/CF)
    will NOT read the Extreme III at all !

    When I do get the Extreme III, it will be the second time I have to get new readers when
    going to a faster card.
