CFEXPRESS TYPE B XQD MEMORY CARD READER FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Find answers to your CFexpress questions:

Can I plug this into a laptop Type C USB port (no thunderbolt on the laptop)?

Unfortunately, a Thunderbolt 3 device will NOT work in a USB 3.0/3.1 port.

Does this device have TB3 pass through?

No, our XQD CFexpress Card Reader does not have TB3 pass through.

What is a memory card reader?

A memory card reader is a device used to read or write data to and from a memory card. A memory card reader typically has a USB interface to allow it to connect to a personal computer so that data can be transferred to or from a memory card.

How to remove a memory card from a card reader?

Removing a memory card from a reader is typically referred to as ‘ejecting’ on both Mac and Windows computers. However, as with most commands, the process varies between Mac and Windows computers. Do not remove a memory card before safely ejecting it since the computer may still be writing or reading data; pulling the card before this process is finished can corrupt the files.

Do I need a memory card reader?

A memory card reader is the fastest way to transfer data to or from a memory card. Some readers allow you to insert multiple cards making transfers even faster. Memory card readers are also more reliable than transferring files directly from the device.

Super fast and super reliable!

This is now my go-to reader on my Mac workstation. Super fast and works perfectly every time!

Jose

Faster than the cameras USB

One of two XQD/CFexpress Type B readers I found. These are on the slightly more expensive side compared to other readers but they are definitely faster than downloading pictures straight from the camera.
