    Agreed, but sticking a "400-in-1" media reader in a crap PC doesn't make it a good PC.

    Yep. Theres no point in getting a super nice card reader. I really don't know of any other memory devices you would need besides SD (all kinds), USB, and XD (Olympus Cameras). On my computer I have extra card ports for ones I've never even seen. (MS, MD, Smartmedia, Compaqflash)

    No... Olympus brand cameras use XD.

    And to answer your question... Yes it would work. It'd be a hell of a lot easier to just stick the sd card in your computer...

    it would be alot easier to use a camera that i already have then go out,buy a driver,install the driver and then use it,just to get the driver alone would take more time then it would to just get the file on the camera and then back to my computer

    what are you talking about installing a driver?
    you can buy memory card to USB adapters. You just plug the usb end in the usb port and stick the sd card in the sd slot.

    Card readers don't need drivers. You just plug them in and they work.

    You may think it's "a lot easier" to use your camera but it's not. Trust me. The $10 you spend on a card reader will be some of the best $10 you ever spend. I'm a computer consultant as well as an IT administrator and people are blown away by card readers daily... first by the fact that there's is an alternative to using whatever convoluted software came with their camera, and then secondly by how much faster and easier it is to move files back and forth with a card reader when it just comes up as another drive and that's it.

    Card readers are faster and easier, plain and simple. Just buy one. The amount of time you waste doing it the long and hard way could be spent instead collecting empty soda cans and bottles to pay for it and you'd still come out ahead. Unless you consider your time to be only worth $0.01/hour.

    Ugh...
    You can buy a SD card to USB port converter. You take the converter and plug it in a USB port. Viola! you're done. Now put the SD card into the other end of the converter and your computer will recognize it.
