Customers Also Shopped For
The card reader/writer provides a high-speed transfer rate up to 480 Mbps, making it convenient and quick to exchange data for mobile devices, MP3s, PDAs, and digital cameras. With a micro SD flash media card inserted, it functions just like a USB thumb drive. However, unlike thumb drives that have hard-wired memory, you can easily replace the micro SD card with another. The hot-pluggable design makes plug-and-play easy, and an LED indicator displays power and access status.
Compliant with the standard specification of both USB 2.0 and USB 1.1, Kinamax CR-TFMSD also supports an auto-detecting slot while the card is inserted. The card reader/writer is compatible with Windows 98, Windows 98SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000, and Windows XP, with Mac OS 9.2 and 10.1.2.3 or later, and with Linux Kernel 2.4.0 or later.

Top Customer Reviews
My only complaint - and I think this is significant is about the compatibility with high capacity cards. It works well with my 2GB and lower capacity cards. It will not read my 4GB card. I've since looked at reviews on NewEgg and seen others experiencing the same. Unfortunately there was nothing in the description on Amazon about this, at least not at the time I purchased.
However, it doesn't make the best pocket USB thumb drive, for two reasons. First is the fact that the cap that protects the USB end isn't attached (and therefore easy to lose). The second is that there's no place to thread it through a keychain or zipper or whatever. (The fact that the MicroSD card protrudes a little out the other end hasn't been a problem for me, though. It stays snugly in place).
I only subtracted one star for this 'cause I'm not sure it was really intended to be used as a thumb drive; I was just hoping it would work out as one.
