Is an adapter made to convert a compact flash card to use an SD card?

I impulsively purchased a used Canon 50D and was dismayed to discover that it uses CF cards. I purchased this to use as a backup camera and I like the camera, but not a CF card. It’s so inconvenient to have to use an adapter and it won’t work in my tablet.

    Shoulden't you just a compact flash to usb converter or a multi card reader. There is a USB hub and multiple card reader at dick smith for $20

    Use firmware and update firmware for Flash card and you have new SD cards

    Couldn't you just use its USB computer interface or a USB multicard reader?

    if the camera use CF then you have to follow the rule, converting CF to SD demands file system changes of course hardware as well.
