To my utter horror the other day I discovered that the floppy drive with card reader that I had built into my PC does NOT read XD cards!
I've done a lot of searching and there are less options for card readers that do both SD and XD - I need both, SD for my Minolta and XD for my new Fuji.

One solution might be to buy a portable USB drive that allows the insertion of SD or XD memory cards.
This would be useful on holiday to upload photos at an internet cafe and so not worry about losing all my photos by losing the camera, or having it nicked.
Most of the ones that I have seen are unbranded on eBay - there is no way that I am poking a poor quaility USB plug into my PC and shorting out the contacts to blow up the motherboard.
Has anyone noticed any branded drive card readers ?
I see Lexar do a single slot multi card reader - but it is little bit long at 93mm.
