This product is so easy to use "a caveman could use it"! Simply insert your Xd card from your camera into the card reader, then plug the card reader, using the USB connector, into an available USB port on your computer, and you're good to go. The computer instantly recognizes the card reader. Upload the pictures to your computer using your favorite photography software (I use Picasa), then erase the Xd card.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
