I've been trying to find out whether my 2008 Acer Aspire 6930G (Vista SP2) laptop can read SDXC cards before I consider buying one but without success. Any help would really be appreciated.

Thanks a lot. Hadn't considered getting an SDXC card reader. I guess noone knows whether or not my computer needs one or not.

That very first one on the list (the Transcend) is the same one that I have, and the only one I'll likely need.

 

Works with most all type of SD cards, even the tiny ones like in cell phones & some camcorders. 

 

Plus it's portable, doesn't need installing, great item to have. I lucked out on mine, it was only $6.99 with free shipping. Was going to get another for a relative afterwards, but they said no double stacking of codes (using more than one time). Lesson learned. 

 

However, you'll love that first card. It's a performer, I have a 4GB SDHC card that was left over after upgrading our digital camera to a 8GB card, it makes for lightening fast Windows installs, though if it's Windows 7, have to place it in a USB 2.0 port (no native support for SATA 3), It works fine with Windows 8, 8.1 & the Windows Technical Preview in a USB 3.0 port. Same with Linux installs. 

 

You'll love it. 

 

Good Luck,, :thumbup2:

Thanks. Right, the Transcend it is then. It's a little pricier here in the UK but still seems well worth it. There's an even cheaper SDXC reader made by Integral for about half the price but I bought one of their other readers a few years ago and it lasted about 3 months.

I haven't heard of that brand, the Integral, though if I see it, will know to stay away. Sounds like the BYTECC brand in the US, much of their product is garbage. Belkin is only a bit better, the only device of that brand that hasn't given an issue with me is a 4 port USB 2.0 hub. Their routers/wireless adapters are no good. Normally the higher priced product is better, but not with that brand. Had to return both Belkin routers, plus a wireless adapter, for full refund. Actually I ended up with the second Belkin router because the store assistant said customers reported it to be far better, so they gave me a full refund on the one, and I took & added to that for the other, which was not one bit better than the first. 

 

Transcend is a decent brand, not only do I have the card reader, but also a couple of Flash drives, They've held up well for me so far & file transfers are much faster than any of my Kingstons. Though they feel a bit flimsy, have had both for over two years. 

 

I'll still say the card reader was the best product of theirs that I've purchased to date.
