I also purchased a refurbished SmartDisk Universal Card Reader, (see other
thread: "MacOS X, iBook and Floppies") only I'm beginning to suspect the
card reader should've been a little more refurbed than it is.
I inserted our camera's 128 MB SmartMedia card and iPhoto read the card just
fine. Then I tried to eject the card from the reader. The card's icon
disappears from the iBook's screen, but the Reader won't release the card
itself. The card is stuck in there, fast. I put in an e-mail to SmartDisk,
but I haven't heard back from them yet.
The refurbished products ...
