Kate's loss of digital pictures and video from her camera was frustrating, and now the card reader she had has failed entirely. We're not sure if they're directly related occurrences, but it seems fishy. She had gone to Radio Shack where they recommended a card reader to her instead of a replacement cord because, they said, it's cheaper, faster and doesn't use camera battery power to transfer. A clerk at the local Ritz Camera store said that the card readers are more reliable than the cords because if the camera's battery runs out while it's transferring photos, you can loose them entirely.
So should Kate get a card reader or buy a proprietary replacement cord for her camera?
