Hi all,

Our new range of PBX system  have a SD card installed on the CPU  for the system bootup and voicemail storage.  We need to be able to back / restore and reinitialize these cards.    

 

My laptop has a SD card slot that can do all of this  however the USB SD card reader that I have looks like it can’t write.   I see assorted ones on PB Tech   which say the can read / write  but has  anyone tried one and can they recommend one..

 

 

 

Thanx in advance




Regards,

Old3eyes

I've never heard of an SD card device that can't write, as you sure? Some cards may be copy protected by hardware.

Any card reader by Sandisk or Transcend will be good. Lexar I'm not as fond of but is reputable.

Thanx.  Yes the one I have says Multi card Reader and won't write to SD cards though will write CF cards.  No the cards are not write protected.  

I'm going to pick up one of these at the weekend and see if it works

There are tons of junk readers on the market  - but for your requirements most would do the trick. 

I  bought a good one....very fast and is actually USB3.0 speeds unlike many that say they are....
