Card Reader
Card Reader allows you to use Palm-powered handhelds (Palm Centro, Palm Treo, Sony CLIE and other Palm pda's) as an ordinary USB or Bluetooth card reader for quick and easy file exchange. No need to install additional software on your Mac, PC or Linux computer. You just have to install the small Card Reader .prc app onto your Palm and it will become a card reader. You will be able to export SD/MMC cards as logical disks via USB and Bluetooth. It has the unique ability to export the card in the background mode allowing you e.g. to transfer MP3s simultaneously with web browsing.

Please note that you have to install a suitable driver on Windows 98. This Windows 98 driver is known to work.
