Since the Kindle Fire HD has no SD Reader port, Can I use a portable SD Card reader with my Kindle Fire HD? And if so where do I get one? Thanks

I'm not sure whether you can plug in an SD card reader. That would require the Fire to have drivers for it and I'm not sure it has them.

There are Wifi card readers now. I know very little about them so I don't know if they're any good or if they are, which are better:

Your Fire would not support it. There are portable Wi-Fi hard drives that you could use, but I can't personally recommend any. It's been discussed in this forum before, though, so perhaps you could search for that info.

Portable wifi drives are, for me, prohibitively expensive.

You can always connect the SD card reader and Kindle via its USB cable to a PC and and transfer that way.

I just got the Kingston MobileLite Wireless card reader, and it works fine with my Kindle Fire HD (a little more spotty with my 1st Gen Fire). I was able to connect a 32GB Flash drive to the MobileLite and stream movies and other content to my Fire without issue. For $60, it seems like a very good deal for extra storage, transferring photos to the Fire with a computer, and it doubles as a back up battery.

I also have the Kingston Wi Drive and the SeaGate GoFlex Satelltie wi fi drive. Both work well with both my Kindle Fires.
