Thanks, Capt. Binghamton. I do know what a card reader is, actually. I just wasn't thinking. I was just plugging the darn thing (the camera) in. And I don't have the adapter thingy either and my camera eats batteries like their chocolate bon bons. I do a lot of pics because I don't sell alot of repeat items. So, tell me before I go off into techno land, how much is one of these babies (card reader) going to set me back?
