It's easy to use--just drag and drop your files. And you'll save precious battery power when you let the ImageMate, rather than your portable device, transfer your files. Minimum system requirements for Windows are a Pentium-class PC with USB support; Windows 98, 98 SE, 2000, Me, or XP; and a CD-ROM drive. Macintosh requirements are a computer with USB support running Mac OS 8.6, 9.1x or later, or OS X v10.1.2 or later, and a CD-ROM drive.
SanDisk's ImageMate Dual Readers are the fastest way to transfer pictures, music, data and more to and from your computer. There are three configurations to choose from, all with the most popular format; CompactFlash. This model also supports Sony Memory Sticks.
This product lets you copy data between two memory cards and helps conserve the batteries in your portable device. Data is transferred via a USB connection using the same drag-and-drop file interface used by the computer's operating system.
Quick and easy file transfer ability
When using the USB port, the transfer rate is a swift 950KB per second. This is up to 50 times faster than the alternative transfer option via the serial port cable that transfers data from the digital device to the desktop computer.
Saves batteries--no special AC adapters or batteries required
The ImageMate also prevents the draining of battery power from the digital device. When transferring images from a digital device to a desktop PC or Mac via the serial cable, the digital device's batteries suffer and much more time is needed for this alternative transfer. After the transfer, more battery power is consumed to erase the card so users can continue taking pictures on the same card. With the ImageMate, the device uses power from the computer not the digital device.
Hassle free installation
By installing the system drivers via CD or downloading it from the Internet, the ImageMate appears on the desktop of the desktop PC or Mac as any other disk drive with an icon and drive letter assigned by the system. This setup is easy to do and only takes a few minutes. With ImageMate, the end-user simply ejects the CompactFlash, MultiMediaCard, Secure Digital, Memory Stick or SmartMedia from the digital device, inserts it into the ImageMate, drags the images to the hard drive, erases the card and it's ready for storing fresh data.
I am running WinXP Home. This card reader is not hot-swappable. When trying to do so, the computer locks up and doesn't read anything. Read morePublished on June 18, 2004
I've had this for about 4 months now, and overall the performance has been spotty, especially with Non-Sony media. Read morePublished on July 1, 2003
