I have a limited experience with SD adapters, but I do know that a micro or a SD mini cannot be used in the Mini reader. Also if you have a micro, you would have two options in order to use them in the Mini's reader. The micro sd placed into a micro to standard SD adapter. Or the micro sd placed into a micro to mini sd adapter and then placed into a mini SD to standard SD adapter (overkill). As far as I can tell, the Mini's reader wont take a mini SD card (or adapter) with out a subsequent standard SD adapter. Make sense? Another option I believe may be possible although it's probably not as cost effective and less accessible is to get one of those little gizmos that mounts to an available pci-e port on your motherboard (assuming you have one) and accepts a micro drive which looks like a compact flash card but it's a tiny hard drive.
