Hi, just joined this sight as have been searching endlessly for a SM card reader. there are plenty out there in lots of electronic stores and believe me I have tried all  and trademe.  So my mother passes away a couple of years ago and we have just found 5 Fujifilm ID  64MB  memory cards and 16 MB from her old camera , but all the card readers don't take this one.  its quite big at 3.5 cm by 4.5 cm.  Even if anybody has one to purchase so i can copy to flash drive would be amazing - i am itching to see what's on them


Thanks for reading and any help would be really appreciated Cheers Melissa

Maybe reach out to a data recovery firm?


Given the potential importance of the files and risk of a bad adapter corrupting them all..

>but all the card readers don't take this one.


As you say,  its a SM card, so its a bit ancient, and most readers wont take it, but this one from AExpress claims to read SM cards,




Two comments specifically mention using it for SmartMemory (SM cards)


>Bought this reader to use for Smart Media cards. Worked perfectly


>Works great, especially with SmartMedia.

I got one that did them from a $2 shop a while back when I needed a CF reader, was a cheapie with slots for everything and terrible USB2 speeds but when you forgot to bring one, was a lifesaver.

Do you actually need a card reader?

Most cameras present the storage over USB. Can you plug the camera into a PC and get the files that way?
