I like the card readers because they treat the cards as plain memory storage, while downloading from a camera via cable means that it only gets treated like camera memory. I bought my late grandfather's printer, an HP all-in-one that scans and has a many-type card-reader.

Yeah! Printers w/ memory card readers still weird me out a tad. I guess I'm more prone to fiddling with photos digitally, and can't see a printer doing a good job with that, even if it has one of those small builtin screens.

Well, in this case, a memory card with the printer (a USB printer) will show up as a removeable storage drive in XP-- it's not merely a card-to-printer dealie. Those that weird you out, I too find very unsatisfactory.

And nobody ever uses A: or B: as drive letters even now, do they?
Built-in card readers would be nice; I find I leave my camera plugged in and turned on, and end up draining my batteries.

It'd be nice if the cameras with proprietary rechargeable batteries would go ahead and charge off the USB or at least draw power off it while they're connected.

Sometime i need to look into corrective action for Window's insane need to scan new media and try to figure out what to do with it.
Just open up a damn file folder and don't try to hold my hand, kthxbye.
