I'd try to get the card reader to work. If you can't, then an Eye-Fi card would be the other route to pursue.

If the tablet is Android it may need to be rooted to work with otg.

In short rooted means that you can do things with the tablet that the manufacturer has blocked. It gives access to features and apps that normally wouldn't function. But it also means to acheive root the tablet basically has to be hacked and every device is different and not all can be rooted due to certain manufacturers locking their devices down. A web search about your specific device would be the best direction I could point you. Keep in mind if it is possible with your tablet it is a tedious and sometimes advanced process with danger of turning your device into a brick, therefore let it be noted I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT.

Yes, the best bet would be to find a tablet that supports card reading out of the box.

I found out that my Samsung Galaxy3 7" did not support OTG. It was not what I bought it for, but thought it was a bit stupid when I needed it and it did not work. Probably should have done more research before getting it. Had to fall back to my wife's Samsung S4.
