I've been using my trusty Canon S330 Digital Elph with 256MB, 128MB and 32MB compact flash cards for the past couple of years. I've also been using my Sandisk single CF card reader along side it too with not too many problems. One of useful things that the Sandisk has been kept around for, is to transport photos onto my digital picture frame. Without it, i'm not sure how else it would get on there.
However, space has been getting tight around the computer in regards to USB ports and this Sandisk was taking up a bit too much room to warrant it's own. So with great luck, Vantec sent over their newest 8 in 1 card reader, with the ability to not only read CF cards, but 7 other formats as well. Oh yeah, and it also has 3 extra USB 2.0 ports to share!
Here are some specs:
Compact Flash I 8MB ~ 1G
Compact Flash II 8MB ~ 1G
Smart Media Card 8MB ~ 128MB
Multi Media Card 8MB ~ 128MB
Secure Digital Card 16MB ~ 512MB
IBM Microdrive 340MB ~ 1GB
Memory stick Card 4MB ~ 128MB
Memory stick PRO Card 256MB ~ 1GB
We'll be concentrating on the CF aspect of things as that's what is most abudant and in use at this moment here. Let's take a closer look...
