Several companies have come out with these card readers for snapshot camera cards (like my Nikon S10s SD card).
Ive found my multi-format readers have kind of a cheesy opening setup for the smaller cards, so these are great as they are dedicated to the small cards and work smoothly.
But wait… theres more. They are so small and of the thumb drive format (flash drives), that they can double as thumb drives with removable SD card memory. So you wont be stuck using a 256Meg Thumbdrive… and youll have a great use for your smaller camera cards. Win…win.
The Kingston you see above has the card go in on the left and the right side is a USB2.0 plug. Its less than 3 long. I paid about $17 for this reader with a 1 Gig Kingston SD card (a good brand) from NewEgg.com
