I am very new to photography and I have a pretty specific question. I'm using an older digital camera (an Olympus D-550 ZOOM) and it uses SM cards, I'm trying to find a good reader for them online so I can transfer my photos from my camera to my computer, any suggestions? The camera also has a USB function but I can't get it to work because of what I think is a driver issue, so if anyone knows how to get that to work either that would b cool.

Save yourself the effort and just buy a better $30 powershot that supports SD, install CHDK, try to see if USB will work in linux, or buy any SM card reader. Can you show what the pictures on it look like when you get it working?

I'd really rather shoot with this thing for nostalgic purposes primarily, I'll try to get it to work in a linux vm potentially, good idea.

Not a VM, a live image. Just get a smart card reader, it will be annoying, the VM will use the host USB unless you set it up to hook into USB which is iffy.

just bit the bullet and bought the card reader for like 13 bucks. Not great but at least I'll be able to deal with this easily forever now.

What a useless fucking thread
>hey guys i need to buy a specific type of card reader any suggestions?
>buy card reader
>ok i bought the card reader and spent 90% of net worth by the sounds of it

I got an Agfa ePhoto 1280 that uses SM Card. Bought literally the cheapest card/reader combo on aliexpress and works perfectly

I was thinking the same thing. I wanted to be helpful but after googling "smartmedia reader" and finding out they cost like $10, I didn't even bother. Now here I am putting effort into this post.
