6-in-1 flash card reader
4 Star Review   By member a.guenin_1091717075 - Aug 5, 2006   

Strengths: can be stored in laptop

Weakness: slow

I've only used this reader with memory stick cards and SD cards. It works fine with either. They both slide into the reader until flush, so the reader has to be ejected to remove the cards. The only downside to this reader is that it is slower than a USB reader. I've got a Sandisk 8-in-1 reader that transfered photos 4 times faster from the SD card and 6 times faster from the memory stick card.

SanDisk 6 in 1 PC card
3 Star Review   By member hairyjungle - Feb 21, 2006   

Strengths: excellent transfer rates, easy to use

Weakness: will not support SanDisk Ultra II SD card

This usefully since it supports 6 types of card however, it will not work with SanDisk Ultra II SD card, the card will corrupt files and makes them unreadable. But for any other card is fine

6-in1 Sandisk PC Card Memory Adapter
5 Star Review   By member Mike, Oh - Feb 18, 2006   

Strengths: It does what I wanted. It workd with a variety of manufacturer SD cards in sizes up to 1GB

Weakness: The first attempt to seat an SD card was a little difficult. but, I must be used to it now. I can slide them right in without having to think about it now. High price is a slight drawback too.

I wanted to expand the disk capacity of an older laptop. I didn't want to buy a larger replacement hard drive. Adding this to the PC Card slot allows me to add removable storage to load up programs and supporting data.

sandisk 6-in-1 adapter
4 Star Review     

Strengths: 6-in-1, plug and play

Weakness: -

As mentioned in the comments, the device works perfectly with cards >512MB and with ultra II cards. I have both a 1GB duo pro card and a 1GB ultra II card and both work fine.

Nice Design - No Dongle
5 Star Review   By member randreed - Dec 8, 2005   

Strengths: Fits inside the PC slot when not in use. Compatible with the SanDisk Extreme 1GB SD-Card. No drivers or setup required.

Weakness: Does not accent Compact Flash (CF) cards, but I have a different PC adapter for those.

I was using a USB "dongle" style SD-card reader and I hated having to carry it around. I already had a PC card that accepts a CF-card, so I started looking for one to use with my SanDisk Extreme 1GB and SanDisk Ultra 512MB SD-cards. Setting this up involved on step - putting it into the slot. My IBM Thinkpad T40 recognized it as a removable drive and I was immediately able to read and write files. The transfer spead is much better that the USB dongle. I am very impressed with this product.

DOES NOT SUPPORT CARDS >512MB!!!
1 Star Review   By member saileshrp - Nov 7, 2005   

Strengths: Fits into PC Card slot

Weakness: Does not work with cards greater than >512MB!

A 2GB Memory Stick and a 1GB xD card crash the Finder on my PowerBook and remain as unmounted volumes on WinXP. Works fine with a 512MB MS and 16MB xD also tested, but this product clearly lacks the compatibility advertised. PS: The product label indicates the wrong orientation for xD card insertion - how's that for Quality Control?!

1 Star Review   By member joysmahal - Apr 25, 2005   

Strengths: 6 different memory card formats

Weakness: Not Compatible with SanDisk Ultra II SD card!!

I bought the SanDisk 6-in-1 card adapter and I am 100% completely DISAPPOINTED. Normally, I love SanDisk products as I have bought a lot from them in the past. I used this 6-in-1 adapter w/my IBM Thinkpad t40p and when I put in the SanDisk Ultra II SD card, the card somehow corrupts the pictures and makes them unreadable. I then used the 32MB SD card that came with my Canon camera and that works fine with the 6-in-1 adapter, but my 1GB SanDisk Ultra II SD card does not work with it. What makes it worse is that it corrupted the pictures and there is no way that I can get those pictures back because I had to reformat the card. I also tested the 6-in-1 adapter with a Dell Inspiron 2650 and the 6-in-1 adapter still does not work with the SanDisk Ultra II SD card. I called SanDisk tech support and they told me that the SanDisk 6-in-1 adapter is not compatible with the Ultra II SD card. This is crap since the 6-in-1 adapter is advertised in a mini flyer that comes with the Ultra II SD card and no where on the package of the 6-in-1 adapter does it say it doesn't support the "Ultra" line.

5 Star Review   By member rimshaker - Feb 7, 2005   

Strengths: Perfect flush appearance when installed. Stock look with any notebook.

Weakness: Small dust cover is the only thing missing.

The design and fit of this card adapter is almost perfect. Fits totally flush in my Sony Vaio. A dust cover to protect the slot opening would've helped, but not such a big deal. Installation can't get any simpler. WinXP detects it as removable drive the first time.

4 Star Review   By member Fujiman - Jan 11, 2005   

Strengths: Very easy setup. Does not protrude from laptop.

Weakness: Poor instructions. Difficult to insert some flash cards. PCMCIA card must be ejected to remove flash cards.

This is one of the few PCMCIA cards I found which can read xD cards. The slot design in the card makes it easy to insert an xD card, although inserting a SD card takes some guessing. When inserted, the PCMCIA card is flush with the computer. The xD card inserts completely into the card, so it does not stick out at all when inserted, which is why you need to eject the PCMCIA card in order to pull out the xD card. I don't know if the other card types stick out from it when inserted.

4 Star Review   By member jefebean - Dec 9, 2004   

Strengths: No need for an external USB plug-in reader.

Weakness: Could use a cap to cover the slot from dust when not in use.

The main selling point of this for me was the fact that I no longer would have to plug in my cameras directly to my laptop and drain my batteries. I also did not want to get an external card reader, since that would be something extra to lug around. With this PC card, I can keep it plugged in (I don't use the slot for anything else) and I can use it to transfer pictures from my cameras (memory stick and SD). I do not have the issue of pulling out the memory cards from the adapter as the other reviewer had. I have a PowerBook G4 and the PC card does not sit flush with the laptop, which gives it just enough room to pull out the memory cards. Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase and with the performance of the card thus far. I only wish that it came with a dust cover, since I plan on leaving the card plugged into the slot permanently.

3 Star Review   By member Uncle Sam - Oct 22, 2004   

Strengths: Plug and play. Hardware recognized on first attempt. Recognized and worked with all three tested media.

Weakness: The card reader and memory cards become flush with the laptop case when installed. You have to remove the memory card with the card reader to get it out.

TEST BED: IBM ThinkPad T41 TEST MEDIA: Sony 32MB Memory Stick from Sony DSC-P10 digital camera Lexar 128MB Memory Stick from Sony DSC-P10 digital camera Nokia 16MB Multi Media Card (MMC) from Nokia 3650 mobile phone RATING: Installation: 5 / 5 Comments: Plug and play. Hardware recognized on first attempt. Compatibility: 5 / 5 Comments: Recognized and worked with all three tested media. Software: N / A Comments: Uses preinstalled Windows plug and play drivers. Power Consumption: 3 / 5 Comments: No noticeable affect on battery life. Does become slightly hot when used. Ejection: 1 / 5 Comments: The card reader and memory cards become flush with the laptop case when installed. You have to remove the memory card with the card reader to get it out. I am not sure PCMCIA interface is meant for such frequent connection and disconnection. Construction: 3 / 5 Comments: Internal reader-card interface pins seem flimsy. There is a disconcerting noise when mismatched pins come in contact. Documentation: 1 / 5 Comments: No instructions for use provided! Especially for insertion of memory card into the reader. High probability of bending contact pins from improper insertion.
