Memory Card Readers

Memory Card Readers are small, portable devices allowing a data transfer from memory cards to computers or mobile devices. Card-readers are compatible with many types of memory cards e.g:

• SD Card and MicroSD
• SDHC and MicroSDHC
• SDXC and MicroSDXC
• CF CompactFlash
• MMC Multimedia Card
