I'm thinking of getting an MP3 player such as an iRiver, and wonder if I can
justify the cost by also using it to save images direct from my camera via
the USB connection. Can it be done, or does it require further expensive
gadgets?

iPHOTO?

If you are in to U2 I think there is a U2 iPhoto due out in a week or so ...

iPhoto plays music and the rest> Try a Google :-)

I agree.

I took my 3ogb X-drive overseas for a 7 week holiday. Tooj 2500 photos
and ALL came home safe and sound.

Not bad when I had to carry around luggage as well as my camera gear.
Easy to use and easy to recharge and the battery lasts a few hours.
