What is the advantage of USB 3.0 on this card reader?
As the read and write speeds on memory cards get faster, you want a card reader that can keep up. USB 3.0 devices can transfer files at speeds in excess of ten times faster than traditional USB 2.0 devices.

What types of cards does this card reader accept?
The four slots on this card reader accept a range of cards. Slot A supports Sony memory sticks, slot B accepts SD and MMC cards, slot C accepts microSD cards while slot D accepts Sony M2 cards.

Is there any installation required for this card reader?
The X8 USB 3.0 card reader is plug and play, meaning there is no need to install any software or drivers. All you need to do is to plug the reader into a spare USB port and your computer will do the rest.
