Most of the new Digital Cameras have a feature where the internal memory is recognised as an actual drive letter under Windows...

When I connect my Fijufilm 2200 I have a drive E:\ and I simply treat it like a huge floppy and view/edit/delete the photos...

NOT a good idea. You should copy the photos from the card to the PC and only view them from there. Only delete the photos using the camera NOT Windows. Otherwise you risk a corrupt card.

I think the most efficient and safest solution is to use a card reader.

why not delete in windows?

As Jester2K II said it can corrupt yopur card, the only safe way is to use your camera delete, this way it should guarantee your card will work properly next time.

I've been using Windows to View/Edit/Delete photos on my Smartmedia and CompactFlash cards for over a year and have never came across any problems what-so-ever in it's day-to-day usage...

So long as you delete the actual .jpg files and leave the directory structure intact nothing should go wrong...
