5-0 out of 5 stars Good value drive for file transfers
I was thinking of purchasing a USB drive to transport large files from one computer to another, but I saw this drive and decided to take advantage of the compact flash memory I already owned for my digital camera. One of the great things about this drive (it is a reader and a writer) is its size. It is quite small and convenient to carry about.

Once you plug the drive in, four new drive letters are added, one for each memory card slot. The Lexar drive has the same problem of all drives of this type in that the computer does not indicate which drive letter has the compact flash and which drive letter has the other media. But since the drive designations are the same each time you plug the Lexar drive into your computer, you can learn which is which. The first time that I plugged the Lexar drive into my XP computer, the computer kept telling me that I had added new drives which was a bit annoying. However, this only happened the first time and I have had no problems since.

I chose this Lexar drive due to its being USB 2.0. My current computer does not have a USB 2.0 port, but my next computer will and so I wanted to plan ahead. Windows gives me a warning that I have plugged a high speed device into a slower USB port, but it works just fine, just at the slower speed. (I can only vouch for how the drive works with XP. I don't know how well it works with other operating systems).

Overall, a great little drive to transfer files. I would recommend it to anyone with a digital camera or anyone who wants to transfer large data files between computers.

2-0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work with new CF cards
I have the RW-018 Rev.B model. I even upgraded the firmware from the www.lexarmedia.com website. However, it will not work with my two Sandisk Ultra II 512mb cards! This reader takes many minutes to write large multimegabyte files, and when reading back the file it is corrupted! Many others with the same problem have reported this problem, and so far there is no fix but to get another brand USB2 card reader. Too bad. I am very disappointed.

(The reader works fine with my 25x Transcend 512mb card, which was made almost 2 years ago.)

1-0 out of 5 stars Lexar did not work with my 1 gig IBM Microdrive
The Reader would not read my I Gig IBM Drive. I notified Lexar Tech Support. They where very nice and replaced the Card Reader. The second Card Reader would not read my 1 gig Microdrive. I notified Tech support again. They suggested to check my IBM Microdrive. The Microdrive functions properly in my Canon G3. The Microdrive functioned properly when downloading to Windows XP Prof machine with, G3 Camera,2 seperate PQI USB 2 Readers( 1 I borrowed to check if my drive will work with the PQI, 2nd PQI reader was the reader I purchased because the Lexar Reader would not work), E film Reader -2. All the mentioned readers would read and download properly to my computer. The only reader that would not function with my IBM Microdrive was the Lexar Reader. My advice buy a PQI Reader. The PQI comes with an USB 2 extension cable and a little travel bag to protect the reader. PQI is will worth the money. NOT LEXAR.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not compatible with WIndows 98SE; HELP not good!
I bought this unit to work with WIndows 98SE as listed on Amazon; it does NOT! I contacted Lexar HELP and they sent a new driver file that would not load.
The device would NOT show up as an added drive. My PC recognized the device when attached to the USB port but the driver software, after a declared "succesful" installation, was "not found."
I do not recommend this device with WIndows 98SE!!!

2-0 out of 5 stars May be incompatible with certain systems.
Purchased this item to transfer pictures from a Viking 128MB smart media card, to a PC running windows XP. The media card was being used in an Olympus camedia d40zoom digital camera. The reader plugged in, came right up as an additional disk drive. We easily transferred the pictures to the PC, no problem. We didn't try to format, transfer, or manipulate any information using the reader --- simply copied the photo files onto the PC. However, when I placed the card back into the camera, it would only give me an error message (wouldn't format, was no longer usable). Previously, that card had performed flawlessly, and I had previously successfully transferred several files from it using a Dazzle USB multi-reader (so I am pretty sure the card was fine). When I contacted Viking, they stated they had had similar complaints with people using the Lexar multireader, and that the card was completely ruined. We replaced the card with another Viking, and replaced the reader with another Dazzle, and it works perfectly. Sounds like from the other reviews, most induviduals have had great luck, so I wonder if it was the particular combination of hardware we tried to use??? Maybe the card coincidentally failed at that particular moment, but that seems unlikely. So if you have the same specific hardware/card combination, you might want to avoid buying this reader, and stick with the Dazzle. Other combinations may work just fine. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Works great, but a bit big.
This product works great. I stuck an old 8mb Memory Stick into it and it worked right away. My Windows XP laptop recognized it within seconds, and it also worked on another XP machine I tried it on. I gave it for stars because:

PROS:
*It works great at what it's supposed to do.
*Its about 3 times faster than a Zip disk (250MB USB).
*As soon as I get more money, I can easily upgrade its storage capacity, which is impossible with most USB Thumb drives.

CONS:
*It is made of relatively flimsy plastic, and the cover for the memory stick is always coming out when you try to unplug it.
*It is about twice the size of my Lexar Media 256MB Jump drive, because it has to have space for the memory that you put in. This large size can be a problem if there are things plugged in surrounding ports, but a cable is included that solves this problem.

All in all, this device is a good solution for somebody who wants a thumb drive, but cannot afford the expensive, high capacity ones. You can use a memory stick/card from an old digital camera, and purchase more memory at a later date.

4-0 out of 5 stars it works
I use this device with memory stick from my Sony digital camera. It works as advertised -- no hassels, nothing. I didn't give it 5-star for two reasons:
1) the plastic casing is cheap and fragile
2) the size of the casing make it difficult to plug into some USB ports if there is another port (USB, mouse, keyboard, whatever) near by.

3-0 out of 5 stars It's useful, but not very sturdy and I keep losing the cap
I like this because it reads the SD cards in my digital camera, but I am not using for a portable thumb drive like I thought I would.

The main reason it hasn't turned out to be a device I use everyday is because the cap keeps falling off. I have to keep it in its own pocket in my bag because otherwise the cap gets lost. Also, I found it popped open once (exposing my SD card) which really concerned me. The other reason I don't use it all the time is that it's so big, I have to connect it to a short USB extension cable to fit it into a USB port alongside other devices. (But a short USB cable was included -- very nice.)

Rather than being indispensible, this device turned out to just be my backup card reader. Usually I just use my SimpleTech Mini FlashLink for a card reader, which is a sturdier and simpler card reader (even though it's not USB 2.0.)

4-0 out of 5 stars Works with no problem
I've had it for about 6 months...no problems at all, other than the fact that the cap broke because it's made of cheap plastic (scotch tape is holding it together). It's a bit bulky, and you can't plug in another USB device when it's plugged in, but no reason not to buy it. No regrets.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great and Simple

Amazon.com Product Description

Lexar Media's FireWire CompactFlash digital film reader makes moving files from your camera to your computer easy--just pop in a CompactFlash card and go. The FireWire connection makes connecting and disconnecting simple, as FireWire allows insertion and removal of the reader without rebooting. Its small size lets you throw the cable in your bag with your camera and connect to your PC wherever you need to.

The reader easily connects to your computer through your IEEE 1394 port and requires no external AC power. You can use your batteries for taking more pictures with your camera instead of transferring images to your computer.

The FireWire digital media reader is up to four times faster than using a USB film reader, achieving high-speed transfer rates of up to 400 Mbps. This is especially important when you are trying to download many digital-image files to your computer.

The reader supports Type I and Type II CompactFlash cards. System requirements for Windows PCs include a Pentium-compatible processor; Microsoft Windows 98 SE, 2000, or Me; and one available IEEE 1394 port (6-pin connector). Requirements for Macintosh computers are Mac OS 9.0 or later, a built-in FireWire port, Apple FireWire 2.4 or later, and a CD-ROM drive or equivalent.

5-0 out of 5 stars FAST!
Compared to my old USB card reader, this thing is very fast. Setup on Windows XP is basically unneeded. It sets itself up when you plug it into the firewire port. If you have large cards to read in, this is worth the extra money over USB to save you time.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good at first but then died
This product worked fine for about a year and then died. It seems as this is a common problem. Be careful.

2-0 out of 5 stars 2 never worked properly
I went through two before I gave up, the first one never worked proeprly. It transferred very slowly at first and then not at all. I RMA'd the first one and the one that replaced it worked for two uses before dying. I've since picked up a $8 usb reader that is much slower but much more reliable. I've done lots of video editing with the firewire card so I don't know what kept killing the drives. It'll take some real convincing to get me to buy another lexar product. I hate being negative, but this experience really soured me. It sounds like many have had better success than I, but be ware.

5-0 out of 5 stars Does what it is supposed to do
1. Works when you plug it in (Im using a mac G4). No need to configure anything, just plug it in.
2. Downloads your photos fast. This is much faster than connecting the camera directly to the computer.

I like it. Buy it.

Worked fine just as it was supposed to, but died on me after only 15 months. Warranty covers for 12 months - customer service would not cover beyond the warranty. I would try a different Reader. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Price, Great Performance
I just got a 128 MB Stick and the Memory Stick Reader (both from Lexar) for my Sony Digital Camera. Both packages were almost impossible to open, but that's OK. I've heard some complaints about Windows XP driver-compatibility, but I didn't have any problem at all. You can't beat the prices in comparison with Sony products.

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny and more...
My system is a Windows XP Pro Pentium 4. Considering previous reviews here on this products incompatibility with Win XP I was a little worried about purchasing it. However now that I have, I can confirm that it is indeed fully Win XP (and Mac OS 9/X) compatible. Simply plug it into the USB port and it installs the XP driver automatically and in a matter of seconds its ready to download pics off a memory stick. I don't doubt the word of others who had problems using this reader with XP because they must have had an older version of the reader which did not have the XP update yet. The package also includes a CD ROM that contains the older Win 98 and Mac OS 8.6 drivers. Ease of use is outstanding and the price makes it very affordable and a must have item.

5-0 out of 5 stars Exactly as advertised!
I opened the package and plugged the reader into my USB port, stuck the stick in, which in this case is a sony stick from a cybershot and whoop there it is! The new device showed up and I was immediately able to access the files. I like that ALOT!

5-0 out of 5 stars Recommended Buy
I am extremely pleased with this product. I installed it on a Dell with Microsoft ME without any problems. No extra drivers or software were required, I just plugged it in to the USB port and let ME add the hardware.

To use the reader you insert a memory stick, then select it just like any other drive from Explorer, Paint Shop Pro, etc. When you're done you "eject" the media through a software command in the Tool Tray. This closes the drive, at which point you can remove the stick. Easy enough!

I have used both Sony and Lexar sticks in this reader without a problem.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great little memory stick reader

5-0 out of 5 stars Works great with Fuji and Windows XP Home
I purchased this smartmedia reader in a combo with my new FinePix 2800 Zoom camera (which comes with a FujiFilm 16MB smartmedia card). I have used the USB reader repeatedly with no problems, but have not yet tried other card sizes or different brands.

Setup was easy with Windows XP and did not require the included software for the drivers. My camera was bundled with the FinePixViewer software for downloading and minor editing of the pictures from my digital camera - but it also loads wonderfully from the Lexar card-reader, AND saves batteries! Overall, wonderful.

5-0 out of 5 stars fast and simple
I use an Olympus D450, a 64MB Olympus Smart Media card, and an iMac with Mac OS 8.6. After downloading some free software from Apple to be able to recognize the reader (newer system software would eliminate this step) I plugged the Lexar reader in and in a split second, the card popped up on my desktop and I moved the the photos to my hard drive. I am impressed with this product.

1-0 out of 5 stars This is total trash; do NOT waste your money...
I bought this about two weeks ago, and I have yet to get it to work. I have two XPs, a 95 and two 98SEs and this sorry excuse for a peripheral cannot be read from ANY of these machines via USB. I even downloaded the latest driver from the lexar website. Actually, I say 'latest', but I should perhaps have said 'last'... for if you try and find this reader on their products page, it isn't to be found... why? Because it has been discontinued, that's why.

God only knows if this thing EVER worked (certainly, there were +ve reviews available), but I can only give my recommendation to give this thing a W-I-D-E berth and to spend your cash on a better manufacturer instead. I am very disappointed... it wasn't very expensive, and I certainly did not buy the cheapest, but I expected better things from Lexar...

2-0 out of 5 stars It works - well sort of
If all you are looking for is a memory card reader so you don't have to connect your camera then this is it. However this reader is 3X SLOWER than the reader in my camera!!
My Olympus 4000 is 3x faster downloading the pictures than this reader is.
I'm using Win2k so there were no drivers to load for either device.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Smart Media Card Reader
I bought this card reader so I wouldn't have to fiddle around with cables every time I want to download pictures and so that it can go from an hour ordeal to a quick few minutes. This memory card reader works perfectly. I am running Windows XP Home Edition and have an Olympus D-460 ZOOM camera. I used a 16 MB Smart Media card also made by Olympus. In my informal tests I was able to download pictures several times faster as well as doing so without using any of the software that came with the camera. Also whenever I want to download pictures all I have to do is slide the memory card in then open the F drive. I would recomend this product to anyone with a old non-USB camera that would like to transfer pictures faster and with less hassel. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars For Lexar USB Only?
I have one of these readers that came with my Lexar 1GB USB CF Card, and it works GREAT with that card. I recently purchased a Sandisk Ultra II 1GB card -- I put this card in the reader and the light just stayed illuminated; nothing was being read. I then read on the Lexar site where it says the JumpShot readers are made "specifically for Lexar CF Cards". That really gripes me. I guess it came with the card, so I shouldn't complain, but for Pete's Sake... this is a simple device... make the thing universal!

5-0 out of 5 stars Don't believe what you read sometimes.
I don't know why there are so many negative reviews. This is a review to rebut them and give it two thumbs up.

My family and I own FIVE (5) of these readers, one for each member, different households. They all work wonderfully. I have not had any problems with this in windows 2000, XP or mac OS X. I highly recommend this reader, especially for this price. I have had 2 years of ownership and no complaints whatsoever. Fast read times, reliable.

1-0 out of 5 stars Did not work
Bought this product for under $5 from B&H. Tried it on 3 computers, two running XP and one running Win 2000. Did not work on any of them. Given what I paid for it, it is not worth the hassle of returning. I will buy a higher quality product to replace it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Editorial Review is Wrong
Whoever put the editorial review up for this product got it wrong. They used the exact words of the review for the "firewire" CompactFlash Media reader.

1-0 out of 5 stars It worked, for a while
When I first got the card reader, it worked great, took it on vacation it was fine. When I brought it to work, I plugged it in... and it got burning hot! Thank goodness I hadn't put the card in yet! It had a horrible burning smell emanating from it. I would suggest spending a little more money on something a bit more reliable. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Lexar Digital Film Reader
I bought this product because my Boss has a Canon Power Shot A50, and I bought for my wife a Fuji Fine pix 1400. The serial connection for digital cameras are very slow and consume batteries.

I wanted a USB digital film reader and this one worked perfect out of the box. I plug it in the USB port (it comes with it's own USB cable)and ran the setup program on the Product's CD and after 2 reboots, one for the USB device on the mother board and one for the Lexar digital film reader it work fine. It shows up in Explorer as a removable Disk (F:) and Removable Disk (G:). The device has two slots for different type of digital film. The top slot has a PC Card Adapter which I use for the Canon Digital Film. The bottom slot I use for Smart media film for the Fuji Camera.

Just click and drag the images off the digital film as if it was another drive on the computer. Could not be any easier.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good enough but [costs some money]
I bought this product one year ago and it didn`t bring any Windows xp drivers. I couldn`t find it on the lexar website so I contacted their support service wich promptly sent me the link for download. After downloading and installing the new drivers it worked fine ever since in 4 different machines with Cf of 16 and 64mb and a 16mb smartmedia.

5-0 out of 5 stars LEXAR MEDIA UNIVERSAL DIGITAL FILM READER
1. For several years I struggled with digital film memory card transfers from my Kodak DC-265 digital camera to my Kodak software program, Picture Easy 3.1.
2. Primary problems:
a) Transfer times excessive, ie., 10 - 15 minutes.
b) Image transfers often excluded varying numbers of images.
3. Upon receipt of a Lexar Media USB DFR from a relative,
problems experienced above vanished, ie., transfers were
completed in a matter of seconds with no exclusions or aborts.
4. Since I have two residences in California, it seemed prudent to have a card reader at each.

1-0 out of 5 stars JUNK-SAVE YOUR MONEY!
This is an aweful card reader. I am using it on a Windows ME system and NONE of the images transfer correctly. They are all disstorted. I tryed first with a Smartmedia card for my ipaq.
