    We're talking about the same thing. You're calling it a "converter", everyone else is calling it a "card reader".

    Well, SD card readers should just work but it depends on your OS. If you're running XP, no worries about drivers. Anything else on the PC side of the fence might require something generic as far as drivers go.

    I personally only buy cameras that don't have goofy drivers to access its contents. Some cameras have a kitchen sink of crap that you have to install to access the SD card. Some just show up as drives when you plug them into your PC. If yours is the latter, then using your camera as an SD card reader is just as easy as using a dedicated card reader. If it's the former, I'd personally just buy a card reader.

    Well, I use FreeBSD... an OS less-popular than Windows, MacOS, or even Linux... and I can just plug in a flash drive or card-reader and it just magically "works". So that should tell you something.

    I personally only buy cameras that don't have goofy drivers to access its contents. Some cameras have a kitchen sink of crap that you have to install to access the SD card.
    Unfortunately, some of the best cameras don't appear as a USB mass-storage device when you connect them to your computer. As the primary purpose of a camera is to take spectacular pictures, I choose the best camera for the job, and then just get a card reader.

    Some just show up as drives when you plug them into your PC. If yours is the latter, then using your camera as an SD card reader is just as easy as using a dedicated card reader.
    Except that in almost all cases, using your camera as a card reader even if it supports it is many times slower than just getting a $10 card reader. Camera manufacturers don't spend an extra micro-penny on USB file transfer electronics.

    Everyone seems to be complaining about the camera software when you really don't need it. With my cameras, I don't even install the software. I just take out the SD card and plug that in my computer. However, if you do not have a SD port, you can just not install the software for the camera, and when you plug it in, your computer should recognize it as a USB flash drive.

    Not necessarily. Many/most cameras do not appear as a USB flash drive even when you install their funky software. They require you to go through whatever multi-step convoluted picture-transfer program they've decided to force down your throat.

    Well... It's worked for every camera I've had.
