Use a Memory Card Reader Instead of Your Data Cable For Quick and Easy Photo Transfers

Geek Tip: Pick Up a Card Reader For Easy Photo Transfers


Instead of carrying around (or searching your apartment for) your camera's data transfer cable to move your photos to your computer, pick up an inexpensive memory card reader to take the cable's place.

These little guys are easy to use with all types of memory cards, and this Aluratek Card Reader I found at Target for $15 can read nine different types of cards (from Memory Sticks to MiniSD) and plugs right into your computer's USB port. I tested it out over the past week and it worked great!

Totally handy when you're traveling, helping your less tech-savvy friends and family get those photos out of their cameras, or if you're the type to lose your cables and cords easily.
