Hi can anyone recommend memory card reader which supports:
- 8GB CF II,
- 8GB SDHC
- USB 1.1 and USB 2.0
- has a small size
- plugs directly into the USB port - no USB cable required
- does not require external power supply (utilizes the USB port)

Thank you for your input!

Most compact flash card readers can read larger capacity cards.
However older SD card readers may not be able to read cards larger than
2gbs. I could not find this info specified on manufacturer web sites with
regard to current products.
However blindly purchasing a recent Sandisk reader I found it could indeed
read larger capacity SD cards. You have to contact the manufacturer to get
specifics.
I would presume current readers are all USB 2; why would you even consider
USB 1?

Thank you for your reply!
Its just that I have a 4 years old laptop that works fine and has the
old USB ports.

I thought of purchasing "Sandisk ImageMate 12-in-1 USB 2.0 Hi-speed
Reader", however there is a posting on Amazon stating that the reader
does not support SanDisk Extreme III, which is exactly what I have.

Regards,
Mitko

Well, some people might only have USB 1.1 in their computer, and want to
save money, IF you can find an only USB 1.1 reader these days.
