Posted here about problem with Nikon transfer directly to Camera after my CF reader broke.

Which does everyone recommend?

I was using a "quandry" i believe was the name from Ritz Camera (house brand I think)...which is the best to have...

Thanks..

I am happy with my Lexar UDMA reader, but it is not cheap. I also have a $20 reader that I bought with my D70S and it works fine, too.

I had a LOT of trouble with the one I bought from Ritz......I now have the SanDisk reader that can read multiple cards, and no problems at all.

I use an "Inland" multi-card reader and have had no problems.

I also have the Lexar UDMA Card Reader, no problems with it after owning it for 4+ years.

Hi Dino,

Quantaray is the Ritz and Wolf Camera store brand.

I have a few Sandisk Extreme Card Readers and Lexar Professional USB Card Readers, both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 and have never had a problem with any of them. One of the Sandisk Extreme and one of the Lexar USB 2.0 Card Readers are over 7 years old now and they continue to work perfectly. Of course the latest USB 3.0 versions are significantly faster if your computer is so equipped.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

Same here, I used a Lexar 2.0 for 3+years without a hiccup. Recently I upgraded my computer so I bought a Lexar 25 in 1 USB 3.0, so far very happy with it, plus now I can transfer those micro SD cards from smart-phones... Good luck

I am using a Kodak A250 50-IN-1 card reader, I have never had any problems with it. I actually have two, one I use for work and one for personal use. It's USB 2.0 compliant and and actcepts MS, SD, Micro SD, XD, and CF cards.
