Ability to access XQD or CFExpress card via computer
Does the NPS-10 allow an inserted card to be accessed via the USB-C connection as an attached device? I am able to get my computer to see the internal hard disk, but it doesn't recognize a card that was inserted into the Nexto. This would be a helpful feature and avoid the need for a separate card reader in those circumstances when direct read or write to card media is desirable.
NO. NPS-10 does not work as a card reader.
You cannot directly access memory card connected to NPS-10 from the computer.

If this is a feature that could be added via a firmware update I would encourage Nexto to consider doing it. While I love the device, the additional flexibility to use it as a card reader would be a real benefit and expand the functionality of the unit. Thanks for your consideration.

That is related to HW architecture, so not possible to run as card reader when connected to PC.
