The dual-slot design accepts all types of media including CompactFlash (CF) Type I and II, IBM Microdrive, SmartMedia (SM), SD Card (SD), MultiMediaCard (MMC) and Sony Memory Stick (MS) - note that there is a problem reading Lexar Media 128MB Memory Stick modules.

The Dazzle 6 in 1 reader is available now with a suggested retail price of $49.99. It works with Windows or Mac PC (see exact OS specs below) but the bundled software is for Windows only. The Dazzle OnDVD software utility allows consumers to quickly and easily transfer photos from a digital camera to a PC, create a photo slideshow and then burn it on a CD for playback on a DVD player. Dazzle products can be purchased from CompUSA, Best Buy, Fry's Electronics, Micro Center, Office Depot, Staples and Sears and are also available online at www.dazzle.com.
The installation was quick and easy on my Pentium III 1000MHz machine running Windows 98 Second Edition. You load the software drivers first and then plug in the card reader and after the usual "detecting new hardware" routine it is ready to be used. The Dazzle 6 in 1 reader can be used as a removable disk drive, with USB true plug-and-play capability. For newer operating systems including Windows Me and Windows XP, the Dazzle 6 in 1 is mass storage compliant and requires no additional software drivers to be installed.

Dazzle OnDVD 1.5Take your digital pictures and turn them into photo albums that can be played on your home DVD player! Digital cameras allow you to take an unlimited number of photographs that quickly pile up on your computer and become difficult to manage. Where can you keep them all, and how do you keep from losing them? You can save the plain old files on a CD, but then you can just view them on your computer. With OnDVD, you can create digital family photo albums that can be played right on your TV's DVD player.
And what if you want reprints? Just like saving the original negatives of your photographic prints, OnDVD keeps a copy of each original, high quality digital photograph on the CD itself. Favorite photos can easily be turned into photographic prints ready to be framed for years of display. You can even share your photo albums over the Internet through the Dazzle Webcast Theater. OnDVD makes it simple to turn your thousands of digital pictures into digital photo albums that can be enjoyed and shared for a lifetime!
