Use a Card Reader For Reading Data on All Cards

May 15, 2013

eSecure Card ReaderSome people connect their cameras to a computer via USB cable. Sure, that’s one way to do it. I prefer simply taking the memory card out of the camera and moving the data to the computer using a card reader like the one shown at right. I won’t try to convince you the eSecure Card Reader is the highest-quality card reader on the market, but it sells for less than $10! At that price, you can certainly afford one for your desktop and one for your laptop bag.

For a couple of dollars more, you can get the Transcend Card Reader. It doesn’t claim to read as many flavors of cards, but it reads all of the most popular formats. Even better, the reviews are much higher. It still isn’t rock solid, but it doesn’t have as many people saying it has failed completely.

Regardless of whether you choose one of the models I’ve listed or you select something completely different, it is important to have such a card reader because you never know when a customer is going to bring you data on a card. Rarely does a day pass when I don’t use my card reader!
