The SIIG Media Reader boasts it's ability to be used without the need of any drivers. Sure enough this holds true for both Mac OS X and Windows XP Pro. Unlike some other media card readers that add multiple drives even when no card is inserted this one does not. This is a huge plus, I couldn't stand my older readers that would add an extra ~6 drives even when no card was inserted. This is true for both Windows and Mac OS X.
A few seconds after inserting a flash card in to the reader an icon appears on the desktop (in Mac OS X) linking to the files on the media card. Under Windows you get a device icon that appears in My Computer (sorry, no pictures of the card being used in a Windows environment, but it definately does work and has been tested).
