I have a camera using 256MB XD, my sister got a Fuji F30 one using 1GB XD and I use 2GB MicroSD for my NDS. I only “need” a reader for XD since the cameras work anyway, but my sisters use a non-standard mini-usb variant so if the reader takes XD and can handle that one it would be nice to.
I have one reader which I got with a magazine subscription, USB 1.1, sees the 2GB card, quite slow but what do you expect, corrupts the data on the card very often… Not reliable at all and a piece of shit.
This autumn I bought another one, USB 2.0, but 2GB microSD wasn’t available in europe so got 512MB, worked well until I got my 2GB card and found out it only supports 1GB …
My MicroSD card is Sandisk Ultra II 66/60x rating so it can transfer data at 10/9 MB/s so I’d prefer a fast reader/writer.
SVP got one from Sweex which seems popular, specs says 700-4000kbps, 0.5MB/s? Only 4000 seconds or 67 minutes to fill my card? No thanks.
They have a few datawrites, no speed mentioned.
They have one from kingston, no speed mentioned (well, USB 2.0 upto 480mbps! …)
and finally they had Veneco or something like that, no mention about speed their either. But if it’s similair to this page: http://www.hjreggel.net/cardspeed/speed-tests.html it’s quite slow.
They also have a datawrite microsd only version, that one would do if it’s not slow as shit and supports my card.
So where can I find an affordable FAST card reader/writer, which doesn’t corrupt my cards and which can handle large cards?
