then either or both are not fully compliant with the standard.

Add USB 2 ports. Ports and readers are cheap and time is irreplaceable.

Cheap old USB2 cameras, the kind marketed to kids or given away free. I
spent a LOT of time finding this out.

Thank you all for your replies!

I just wanted to report that I purchased "SanDisk ImageMate 12 in 1"
from the local retailer and it appears to work fine (USB 1.0) with the
following cards:
CF SanDisk Extreme III 8GB
SDHC Patriot 8GB class 4

I ask the sales person to check with SanDisk if this model supports
the "Extreme III" CF cards as there is a review on the Amazon web site
according to which this device does not. Based on her "research", some
of the initially produced devices do not work with the "Extreme" CF
cards.

In case it could help, my card reader has:
model number: SDDR-89 V4
part number: 20-90-03066

Regards,
Mitko

So? If it works for me, does that make a difference?
