Yes, just don't ask me who, because I don't remember off the top of my

But I know when I bought my first MemoryStick reader, the same company
offered a reader for CF along with other types. It was about the same
size as a USB FlashDrive, and could be plugged directly into a USB port
(although it also came with a 3 foot extension cable).

I can't give a review of how well it worked, as the package said my
MemoryStick reader didn't need drivers for Mac OS 9, upon opening the
package, I found that it in fact did need drivers. So I returned it and
bought a different brand that really didn't need drivers.
