    Ok, so I understand the read part..from card to PC..how would you go about writing from PC back to the card ? Is it down to the software program used or what ? Can you edit the photos using the PC software then write back to the card and take it to be developed in store ?

    When you plug in a card reader+card All that happens is you get a 'removable drive' as part of your computer. Go to windows explorer and you will see the new drive. You can then do what you like with the files on it because it behaves the same as any other hard drive.
    Win 98 might need a driver installed to see the card reader but XP will just work as soon as you plug it in..usually.
    You could use it just like these 'pen drive' things to carry backup files from your hard drive from one computer to another etc.
    As it is a 'drive' it can be used for anything. Using it in a camera it is best formatted first in the camera to get the file system how the camera likes it.
    So yes is the short answer to your question!
