SanDisk MicroMate USB cardreader|
The card carries a Class 4 speed rating. The SanDisk MicroMate USB 2.0 reader, which normally retails for $19.99, will be included with the 8GB SanDisk Ultra II SDHC card at no extra charge. SDHC cards require an SDHC-compatible reader to transfer images from card to computer, and the MicroMate readers work with both SDHC and SD cards.

The 8GB SanDisk Ultra II SDHC card adheres to the SD 2.00 specification, a new design that is required for cards and cameras to support capacities from 4GB to 32GB. The specification was developed by the SD Association, an industry standards board, which also defined three speed classes for speed and performance capabilities. The speed rating system, adopted by the SD Association, is intended to help consumers select the right card for the desired application. It does not denote the fastest memory card.
