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.

Yes, I'm using those cheapo type that comes with my point and shoot camera. Guess I'll have to invest in a Sandisk CF card reader...
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.

Hmmm... Guess I will have to make a trip down to Best Bargain or Cathay Photo. Took so many pictures but can't transfer to my laptop. A bit frustrated...
Can use the direct cable transfer from camera to laptop until you get a new card reader.
