SCM Microsystems says that its Microtech-branded
ZiO! USB digital film reader works with Secure Digital media. The ZiO! is a small USB-based digital media card reader offered in various models with support for different media card formats.
Secure Digital cards are postage-stamp storage devices. They are being used by some digital music devices that support Secure Digital Music Initiative (SDMI) copyright protection. SD cards are also beginning to see support on PDA devices like the Palm m500 series and the Panasonic ipalm digital camera.
The company also says that the ZiO! costs less now — they’ve cut the suggested retail price for US$39.99 to $29.99. ZiO! models are also available with support for CompactFlash and SmartMedia media cards, as well.
