The cable is setup in a way that it is easy to plug it in. The red, white and green wire are in a 3-pin jumper and the ground is in a single pin jumper. It also has an extra USB A plug on the front and wires set up the same way. Both bundles of wires are marked seperately so you know which one is where. After plugging it in I ran the cable alone the side with the SATA cables and Power/Reset/LED wires. This keeps the clutter down to a minimum.


Since things are installed, it's time to get the test media lined up for a picture. I have two 256MB CF cards, one 256MB SD card and one 128MB xd card. I also have a 64MB Sony MS card, but it's in the camera that I am using.

The system fired up and all of the ports on the card reader are given their own drive letter. No drivers are needed to be installed (W2k Sp4). I used it to move the MP3 from the CF card over to the SD card, and add the new version of Perl5 for my Sharp Zaurus on the CF card. The xD card was tested to see if it can move a couple of the movies from the camcorder on it it. I then took the pictures off the MS card and moved them to my NSLU2 so I would have access to them from any machine on the network.

After I did the file shuffle, I ejected all of the cards and placed the other CF card in the reader and ran SiSsoftware Sandra's speed test. Not the fastest speeds on the planet but it is faster than a Jaz drive by a bit and blows away Zip and Floppy drives.

If you have a bunch of media around, grab yourself one of these readers to make your life easier. You'll save a lot of time down the road by not swapping out data cables over and over.


  • 15 different forms of media
  • 4 useable at one time
  • Extra Type-A USB plug on the front


  • Have to remove the card reader from the case to change the face plate
