    I just got my M3 Lite from Hopebuy a couple hours ago.

    I ordered it on the 11th, it arrived on the morning of the 13th but I missed the UPS guy because I was asleep! So I just barely caught him today before he was about to head out.

    As a previous owner of a now defunct G6 Lite, I want to make sure that the Micro SD card I buy for this won't get corrupted. I don't want to buy some $5 card reader from Hong Kong on Ebay only to get the SD card ruined.

    Do they sell card readers at places like Best Buy and Circuit City?

    Also, do Sandisk 1GB Micro SD's come with an SD adapter so that you can use it as an SD in addition to a Micro SD? If that's the case, I don't need to look specifically for a Micro SD reader if I can just use an SD card reader by using the adapter right?

    Yes, you can find card readers at most electronics/office supply stores. The ones around me carry them for $25-35 or so.

    Sandisk does come with an SD Adapter.

    If you live near a Fry's Electronics, they should have a huge selection of card readers for cheap, unlike other stores. For $6, I got a card reader that reads CF, MS, SD, and others.

    I purchased a Sabrent 52-in-1 USB 2.0 Memory Card Reader & Writer from MWave for about $10.95 plus shipping myself. The local stores were honestly asking 30 bucks and higher for similar peripherals. Mind you, a USB key reader is nice a simple, but having all readers for a "just in case" scenario is sublime.

    I bought one of those Hong Kong ones:-

    http://www.ledshoppe.com/Product/com/CA2018.htm

    However, I must say that the build quality was superb and the card reader itself is functioning much better than I ever expected it to. You can't beat the price ($3.00 shipped free world-wide), especially if you live out of the US. The card reader that I linked is for SD, not mini or micro. That site also has mini and micro SD card readers, but I can only personally vouch for the above one.

    Lol, I got me one of those too, I already got one, but it was just cool to get one for a price that low [​IMG]. When the package arrived, it had three stamps of 1.80$ lol

    I got a Micro-SD only card reader from LEDShoppe. This one.
    I've been very happy with it. Only $5 shipped!

    I have also ordered a bunch of those $3 readers in the past and they have all worked well.

    I have a sandisk micro SD card and they do come with an adapter. If they didn't my 27 in 1 card reader wouldn't be able to read them as it reads the SD card as well as the Mini SD card. Also about 22 other cards I have no idea of [​IMG]
