I had forgotten all about SmartMedia, the flash storage format that predated Compact Flash and SD cards. Until I unearthed our first digital camera, the ancient Olympus D‑490 ZOOM. Popped a few AA batteries in it, and it fired right up. So i gave it to our four-year-old, and he took a bunch of pictures, then in the process of not putting it on my desk like i asked him to, he dropped it.
Now I am left with a hunk of metal and plastic, four perfectly good AA batteries, and a SmartMedia card with priceless works of art (or twenty-four pictures of the floor, I don’t know).
I am pretty sure i don’t have a SmartMedia card reader anymore. The camera is too old to have a USB port. It came with a serial port cable. The computers in the house are too new to have serial ports. New card readers are too expensive to use just this once (since the camera is toast).
So anyone got a SmartMedia card reader they don’t need? Or know where I can get borrow one? Thanks.
