Accessory Review: SanDisk SD/USB card
Some very interesting things can fly under a reviewer's radar. SanDisk's Secure Digital card with a split personality is one of them. This combo SD card/USB pen drive been around for a year and half, but it isn't entirely obvious how to use it. We reveal all in our review...

Sounds like and AWESOME way to get pictures from camera to lap top in a hurry other than via cable or card reader.


Thanks for a great review that will help me avoid the little pitfalls.

You're welcome, Frances and thanks for the kind words! Yes, I'm beginning to wish I could fold my CompactFlash cards in half, too. The more I use it, the more I like it...

Hi I just bought a DMC-FZ20K.I've been banging my head against a wall trying to find an ac adapter to power the camera for downloading digital pics. I see this little devil at Costco so I swung right over to IR to see what I could find out about this SanDisk/USB card. If this works with my camera then I don't need to spend @ $80+ for the one or two adapters that I could find out there. Like the early days of the PC this proprietary crap is a real pain. So they make a model that has accessories that work for it and a limited number of models and when they get anywhere near 3 years old no one makes them. So please tell me: Will this card will work with my Panasonic?.


PS: The great reviews at IR is what clued me in to getting this camera from the start so when Costco had these new on sale at closeout price I snatched it...

If your camera takes SD/MMC memory cards, the SanDisk SD/USB card will work. This goes for everybody, BTW. In the review there's a shot of it right next to a Kodak SD card. Identical. In fact, it's the card I use in all the SD review cameras that I see. I just yanked it out of a Panasonic DMC-TZ1. It's been in many different models and I never have a compatibility problem with it...

I use this card with my Canon A640. The nice thing about it is that, when plugged in, both iPhoto (Mac) and Canon CameraWindow (PC) recognize it and start automatically, offering download options. Basically, there is no difference between plugging the A640 in through a USB cable and plugging the card directly...

I was hung up on the sizing issue. Sometimes you just have to shove things into holes with all your might and know that you are doing the right thing...
