    Can anyone please recommend a Portable Storage Device, I want to transfer
    Canon 20D Raw files to the device.

    I want one that can run from internal battery, mains and car battery.

    Many Thanks

    I have a Delkin BurnAway which instead of just storing the images it
    burns them to DVD's with the push of just one button. The CF card
    just goes into a slot in front of the machine. The advantage of this
    system is that you are instantly archiving them as well, it never
    fills up, and if you're travelling you have a portable battery
    operated DVD player!

    I'd recommend the Apple iPod photo + Apple iPod photo camera connector.

    with this set you can hook your camera to the iPod photo and download your
    files to the iPod.

    I have the iPod photo 60GB, and since it have 15 hours battery life. I think
    it's a great deal.

    Apple just lowered the price of the iPod 60gb to $399

    Tomorrow I'm getting the iPod photo camera connector, and I'll test it and
    let you know more. I'm not sure if it will support storing photos directly
    on the iPod. it may only download photos stored on the camera.

    We'll see tomorrow

    best regards

    I got the Apple iPod photo camera connector today, and I tried it with my
    Nikon D2X , you just attach it to the iPod, so it adds a USB port to the
    iPod, then
    you connect the camera's usb cable to the iPod. the iPod see that there is a
    memory card attached and you can import photos.

    I even attached a memory reader to the iPod and it recogised it :) , I
    attached a USB hard drive, it recognised it but it didn't read the files,
    maybe because it's NTFS fromated.

    It's kind of slow though! compared to copying from a USB 2 memory reader to
    the computer.
