I unboxed the reader and installed it with out any issues. All seemed well I inserted a memory stick and read it without any problems. As soon as I put a SmartMedia card into the reader it got stuck!!! I spent the next 15 minutes trying to remove the card, I finally removed it and promptly sent the reader back. Don’t buy this reader if you have SmartMedia.

I bought this product because I have digital cameras that use different media. The installation took me less than five minutes. Once the installation was complete, I was able to download about 70MB of images from 2MB, 8MB, (2)16MB and 32MB SmartMedia cards in less than 5 minutes. I found that uploading images directly from my camera was significantly slower than using the DigiDrive. I did not have any problems with using an IBM Microdrive, Flash card or SmartMedia card. The SmartMedia's slot ejection mechanism is very similar to my camera's - once the card is installed, simply push in on the card and it ejects out far enough to pull out of the slot easily. The other nice feature is that it does not require an external power source. The USB port provides the power for this unit. I looked at several Internet sites for the best price for this unit. Buy.com had the lowest price at the time I made my purchase (March,2002).
