memory card reader itself, a USB2.0 connector cable and a CD with drivers
Mac and Win98/2000.
This means your card reader can be used with the most popular operating systems.
The reader takes its power from the USB2.0 interface so no external power is
required. According to TraxData, the 11in1 reader has
2 years warranty and sells at the recommended retail price of €17.99.

The 11in1 card reader, has a led at the top left corner, which blinks

card contents like any normal storage device performing actions such as rename,
copy, delete, format, etc. We tried
a SanDisk 16MB and TraxData's 1GB SD cards and both worked without any problems
with good reading/writing results.
We used FD Tach beta 0.9.0.3 and we checked the performance with the SanDisk
16MB secure digital card
As we can see, the results are very good in terms of reading/writing:
The results with the 1GB SD card were also very good, confirming the drive's
USB2.0 connection to the host PC.
Without any doubt, TraxData's 11in1 (or 12in1) memory card reader is a very
good product, low priced, full of features and with very good performance.
At a price tag of €18, you can buy a fast memory card reader with USB2.0
connection that supports virtually all memory card formats. Even more, it
also supports Linux and MacOS operating systems, making it a versatile and
universal computing product.
TraxData's 11in1 reader is highly recommended for all users with
digital cameras, and we will certainly keep it connected to our PC since our
daily need for transferring photographs is quite high :-)
