USB multi-card reader

My mom has extremely old SSD and micro-SSD cards along with a really old Hama brand USB 2.0 multi-card reader. While this is NOT QubesOS specific, except for my first question:

  1. Is there something special I have to do to get a Multi-Card USB read to do in order to function within a qube VM? Like do I have to make it a “pass through” or no?

but also

  1. What SSD and micro-SSD multi-card readers are most supported by Unix and Linux distros?
    I ask because apparently Hama brand is not recommended for Linux it seems from a few web search queries. So does anyone recommend a Linux friendship multi-card reader that my mom could buy for her old offline camera and phone backups? I am trying to search, and for multi-card readers my search is propitiated with fluff instead of any real leads to any answers in user reviews etc

So while the Hama brand doesn’t seem to play nice with Linux I did eventually find some multi-card readers on NewEgg that do

My main Qubes related question still stands, when I get to this eventually again … is there a special way to enable USB multi card readers or will it be like any other USB mount and unmount process like I did with my Linux compatible external drive recently?

It’ll be like any other USB drive.
