    What is a good multi format card reader?

    What is a good card reader to get? I need one for multi format cards (SD, xD, Memory Stick, CF) because I have many cameras. I've been using this Targus 25-in1 but it is unreliable. Sometimes it works but sometimes it won't.

    I've had good luck with the cheap ones ($12 or less) they seem fast enough and have not had one die on me yet, though I have lost a few, but for that price it's no big deal.

    I wouldn't speed to much money on them either, just make sure that it's a USB 2.0 Hi-Speed device (otherwise the device might still use the utterly slow USB1.0 speeds).
    Just stay away from Targus and Trust

    It's just a matter of checking the list of supported memory cards
