    Hi all,

    no not another question about digital wallets....

    I am travelling in the UK for a few weeks and rather than go down the
    digital wallet path, i have been thinking about just getting my flash cards
    burned to CD at a photo store (Jessops ?) and was wondering if anyone has
    tried this approach ?

    If anyone has, any drawbacks, ideas of costs or or other issues which this
    approach may encounter ?

    Hi Simon,

    I just phoned Jessops for you.

    They charge £1.99 for up to 100 photos.
    (i.e. 1...100 photos costs you £1.99 but 101 costs you £3.98 !)
    This includes the cost of the CD which comes in a wallet (rather than a
    plastic case).

    They provide a 1 hour service or overnight service. The price is the same.

    Hope that's useful.

    And if you're passing Shrewsbury on your travels pop in for a cuppa and you
    can check out your photos on our PC.

    You might not want to burn holiday time looking for a Jessops.

    True - there are *only* 250 stores after all.

    Boots (the chemist) also offer the service - £2.50 including an index print.
    This is probably only available at larger stores.

    You might want to try Internet Cafes - Do it yourself for a lot less
    money . Create a multi session disk if your memory card is 256MB or
    less. this is what i did in Oz and NZ.
