    Can anyone recommend a mobile storage device that can download from CF
    cards.

    I have heard there is one that can burn cd's as well, anybody have any
    ideas?

    Many Thanks

  3. Take a look at RoadStor, it might be what you want:

  4. Precisely *one* thread before yours (at least that's how it shows
    through my newsreader), I posted a question asking for advice or
    reports on the Wolverine Image Storage unit. From what I understand
    from the specs, it is *exactly* what you're looking for -- a portable,
    calculator-sized computer with card reader and a "Copy" button that
    copies all files from the card to a hard disk (20G, 40G, or 60G,
    depending on the model). IMHO, it's much better than having a
    portable CD-writer or even a DVD-writer.

    BH Photo has it, and TigerDirect as well:

    www.bhphoto.com

    Choose (from the left menu) Digital Photography, then under the
    section "On Camera Accessories", choose "Cards and Card Readers",
    then "Card Readers" (it's at the very end of page 3)


    I haven't got any replies after several hours, so perhaps that
    means that no-one here has had any experience with it. I am about
    to order it from tigerdirect.ca (I asked the question here just
    in case someone has any red-flags to raise, based on first-hand
    experience); it really looks like I (and presumably you) have
    been looking for.

    HTH,

  5. After some additional searching through BH Photo site, I
    found several other units that also look interesting.
    Check out the MindStor units.

    But check this one out too:

    http://www.smartdisk.com/Products/DigitalMultimedia/FlashTrax.asp

    It's pricier, but it has the added value that it is also
    an MP3 player (with 20G or 40G or 80G), which is practical.
    Also, it has a 3.5" LCD screen for image preview (it even
    displays RAW formats -- Nikon NEF, Canon RAW format, and
    several others). Neat.

    HTH,

    Carlos

    Carlos,

    I do not know about Wolverine, but it does sound interesting. On a note re:
    Tiger, they are one of the few resellers that I have had customer service
    problems with - the other being Insight. Have not dealt with the CA division,
    but the US never responded to any correspondence and only knew how to put
    their phone on Hold. I only have one vote in this (there may be thousands who
    swear by them), but I'd vote BH, or some other.

  7. I use the Flashtrax, and I love it. It's fairly speedy and easy on
    batteries. I wouldn't travel without it.

    Do a search for the Nikon Coolwalker. It's coming out in the states
    soon. It has a 30 GB harddrive and s screen to view the pictures. I
    think the model # is msv-01
