You can buy SD/MMC USB card readers on eBay for <5 USD with free 
shipping.  You may need a microSD→full-size SD adapter too.  I have 2 
spare SD/XD/MS/M2/TF(AKA microSD) USB card readers.  You can have 1 of 
them, but it would probably cost more for me to mail them to you than 
for you to buy an SD/MMC reader with free shipping on eBay.  I have the 
2 spare readers because the product description on DealExtreme claimed 
they support CF, which my camera uses, but after I received them I 
discovered they do not support CF. (fail)  My 2 spare readers have 
separate slots for TF (AKA microSD) and full-size SD, though, so you 
could use both sizes of SD cards without needing an adapter.
