Lexar Introduces New FireWire 800 Reader

The new card readers work in conjunction with the newly introduced CompactFlash 300 Professional Ultra Direct Memory Access (UDMA) cards; a high-performance flash memory standard, as well as 133x Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) memory, a flash memory standard that supports capacities of 4GB and above.

The Professional UDMA FireWire 800 Reader is compatible with all Type I and Type II CompactFlash cards, MicroDrives and UDMA compatible Compact Flash cards. It is supplied with a FireWire 800 cable with a length of one meter and a cable of 18 cm. The product’s design allows it to be stacked for easy placement with other readers; it also allows concurrent downloading of images stored on multiple cards when up to four of these units are connected in series.

The Professional Dual-Slot Reader plugs into the USB 2.o port and works with CompactFlash SD, SDHC and UDMA cards.

The system requirements are Mac OS X 10.2.8 or higher.
