Yes, but make sure the CF Card Reader is one with a deep slot for the card as I've had a shallow one that made me feel like the pins could get bent if not careful. The later reader (Trandscend TS-RDF8K) was fine for CF cards.

BTW, I always take the card out to download images & only connect the camera via a cable to do updates etc..
I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
