  • Thanks for this this link, I transfer a lot of information to various computers using this type of process. I’m glad that I can download this to have a shortcut instead of doing this the old fashioned way.

    This sounds like a good piece of software. Im not sure if it will work with a multi memory card reader. What would happen if you had more than 1 memory card plugged in?

    I guess I will just download it and try it out.

    Will this program also display non-storage devices? For example my USB mouse or keyboard?
