Can you suggest a powered card reader. After searching the web I'm a bit confused.
I have this one http://www.amazon.com/IOGear-Combo-R...5005615&sr=8-2
It works just fine. Amazon has others, but I can't speak to their quality.
I use this reader almost exclusively now. Still need the camera connection kit to connect the usb, but since we use both cf and sd cards, I don't have to switch to the kit sd reader.
By the way, the reader is less expensive now. I think I paid about $40.
