    hi :) do all digital camera memory cards fit into any card reader? the card that came with my digital camera is by patriot brand and i don't know a lot about this yet so i don't know if it will be compatible with various readers (or, does "size" matter? this one is 256mb storage). thanks for any enlightenment anyone is kind enough to share :) princi*

    NO, you have to use the appropriate reader for the format you have. USB card readers are fairly cheap these days and you can buy ones that can accommodate most formats in one box. The MB size does not matter as that how much data it can hold

    I use this one: Sandisk ImageMate® 12 in 1 Reader/Writer. Have also given 3 as gifts and everyone says they have never had any problems.

    If you'd tell us what format the card for the camera is, we could be a lot more help.
