There are various different types of cards that cameras, MP3 players etc use. You can either just get the type required for the card that you use, or can can get one that will take more than one type which may be the better option if you think that you may change to a different one later on.

Flash card memory is an increasingly popular storage media, there are unfortunately various types of flash memory but they all serve the same purpose and multi card readers are a way of reading 6 or 7 different types of memory.

The main function of a Card Reader (multi or single) of course is. It will be permanently connected to your PC, meaning you don't have to keep connecting/disconnecting your digital camera to transfer photo's to your hard disk. You take the card from the camera and put it in the Card Reader (which shows up as a Removable Disk in Windows Explorer) and transfer your photo's from there. Once transferred you can delete the card ready for re-use in the camera again. I have just bought an 8 in 1 card reader from Ebuyer for £6.99 plus postage. Lots of advantages, I have two cameras both taking different cards (SD and SM) I also have a friend whose camera takes CF but if he has some photo's he thinks I might like I just take his card and transfer them to my PC direct. Also works the other way of course, you can transfer "stuff" from your PC to the card.
