I bought a Kingston 1GB SD card and bundled USB1.1/2.0 "14-in-1" card
reader from memorybits.co.uk. But I can't get this SD card (or any
other make) to mount on any of my (USB 1.1) Macs running various
flavours of OsX and Os9.1. In fact, the card reader's LED light only
comes on occasionally.

The USB cable is ok because other devices will work fine with it. So
probably this is a dud card reader. Can anyone please suggest a branded
hub-powered card reader which definitely works? TIA.
