    that's good, i have added 4 USB 2.0 ports to my G4/400
    and that really speeds things up

    unfortunately there are no firewire all-in-one card readers

    However, I have one which is not working. Do I need to mount or something? I tried my friend card reader and also can't work.

    normally there is no need to mount
    try your card reader on another computer, to see if the reader or the USB port is faulty

    Uh. This has happened to me before too. A cheapie card reader just refused to work on both my macs, but works fine on my wife's windows laptop.

    I'm currently using a ComBo brand multi-reader...

    I have 2 card readers, both cheapo kind... one I bought at just over $10, works intermittenly... the other came as free gift with my camera, works perfectly.

    I guess some card readers just don't work properly with Macs.
