I just bought a Canon Powershot a95 and a Lexar 1gb card. I've been happy with them both so far. I went to pick up a CF Reader/Writer, so I bought the one from Dazzle/Zio. It says it's a compact flash reader, but the slot is very thin. From looking around online, it seems that it may be a SmartMedia reader...

Take a look at the picture here..

It's the...
"Hi-Speed ZiO Portable CompactFlash
Reader/Writer
DM-23100"

If you click on the picture it links you to a spec sheet and if you notice the slot in the picture on that page is much thinner. That is the one I have, not the one on the main page of readers.

Has anyone run into this problem?

Hmph.. Back to CompUSA tomorrow...

I had the smartmedia version of that reader and it functioned ok. It sounds to me like it's been wrongly packaged.
