If you have a camera (or similar device) which stores pictures on a "smart media" card (or reads data from such a card), this device would let you access the card's contents directly on your computer, possibly faster than hooking a USB cable to the camera.

If you don't have such a device, this adapter isn't particularly useful.

It's a card that information can be stored on, it would be easier to use a USB flash drive instead of this unless you had a special device that read SmartMedia card.
Hope this helps,
