    Default CF Card Reader

    Hi all! I have a problem. I am using a CF card for my camera and I find that those multi-card reader is unable to read my CF when connected to my laptop. I am using a Sandisk Extreme IV 8GB card. Any solution for that? How do you guys transfer your pictures from your CF card to your computer or laptop?

    PLEASE HELP!!!

    I believe you are using those cheap types?

    You got a Extreme IV card, get the Sandisk CF card reader!

    I haven't got the problem you have with all my card readers but I'm pretty happy with my Sandisk dedicated CF reader. Its small and relatively cheap, $35 at Cathay.

    Recommend that you go to Best Bargain computers (5th floor...I think) at Sim Lim Square. For computer peripherals, they literally offer the best prices.

    I got my Kingston USB 2.0 multicard reader from them about a year ago. It can read and write to my latest 16GB CF cards with no problems whatsoever.

    Can use the direct cable transfer from camera to laptop until you get a new card reader.
