    Favorite CF Card reader with USB 3.0 interface?

    Delkin Devices USB 3.0 Dual Slot SD UHS-II and CF Memory Card Reader

    CF card corruption?

    On Delkin CF 700x and on Delkin SD 633x cards- 3 or 4 out of more than a dozen of each have produced "pops, thwaps" about .5 sec each and I also suspect it's the client's reader. For several months now I hand over production cards seated in my card reader with usb attached instructing Data/DIT to leave them seated for the transfers.......no more "thwaps"
