What card reader is included with the HP p2-1394 Desktop PC?

I just bought a new HP p2-1394 Desktop PC, and the box says it has a 6-in-one card reader on the front panel. The only slot I see is for xD, SD, and MS. My camera takes a Compact Flash card. Is this card not supported on this computer?


What is my option? Can I just buy a plug-in card reader for the USB port?


Thank you!

DANG - you are spot on... that card reader will not accept the larger Compact Flash cards. Your best bet is to get an external card reader, there isn't a P2-xxxx that has a different reader.


here is  a link to newegg - you could check out tiger direct too.


this one from newegg is cool too for $13 you get a 4GB card with the reader... and it's pretty cool looking too, it looks like a USB thumb drive with the slot for the card on the side...


good luck
