So why is a card reader better/easier than just plugging in the USB cable? So you don't have to mess with the camera itself?
Several reasons for me.
Even though I use rechargable batteries..you're still using the batteries. And I used to HATE having the batteries die in the middle of transfering pics. <ugh>
I'm happy that I'm not messing with the camera nor cables. I leave it connected (it's actually double stick velcro'd to the side of my tower). The card shows up as a separate removable drive.
Even though I have a fast 'puter, the transfer rate is smokin.
Hope this helps!
