SanDisk unveiled a bunch of new memory related products today. We'll start with the new SanDisk Multi Card ExpressCard adapter, this product allows you to easily transfer data from SD, SDHC, MMC, MMCplus, Memory Stick Duo, Memory Stick Pro Duo and Memory Stick Pro-HG Duo cards to your notebook.
“With the SanDisk Multi Card ExpressCard Adapter, we’re supporting the rise of the ExpressCard slot in notebook computers,” said Matthijs Hutten, Senior Product Marketing Manager at SanDisk. “We expect ExpressCard to completely replace the PC Card standard in the near future, so offering an ExpressCard adapter which integrates many popular card formats is a natural move for SanDisk.”

For notebook computers without embedded memory card slots, the SanDisk Multi Card ExpressCard Adapter is an easy system upgrade. Users only need to pop the card into the ExpressCard slot – there is no software to install, with no external cables or hardware required. To transfer data, users simply take a memory card out of a device such as a digital still or video camera, an MP3 player, a portable game player or a mobile phone and insert the card into the adapter.
The Multi Card ExpressCard adapter will be available in September for $29.99.
