What do you mean when you say I need a reader? Can’t I just plug the camera into the computer to export the photos?

Yes, you can just use an appropriate USB cable to transfer images to your computer, but card readers are much faster and they don't drain your camera batteries.

My Win 10 PC has a built-in SD card reader (although I almost never overflow to the SD card with my D500) and an XQD/SD reader cost me just over $20 on Amazon.
