View Full Version : storing photos to my pocket drive- without the laptop
11-19-2004, 04:44 AM
hey all...is there such a device that will read a compact flash card, and send the photos without interface to my pocket hard drive? I am heading to thailand with my digital rebel. I know i will be shooting tons, and i do not want to a) bring the laptop b) have to hunt for a photo shop that can burn to cds when both my 1gig cards are full.
Any thoughts on my options? I have an 80gb firewire/usb2 pocketdrive. Normally it gets power from the laptop, but it can take an extrenal plug. Could i hook up my rebel to the drive and tell the camera to just upload?
am i dreamming?
mlecho here's something I've had my eye on, and so far it's the only one I've been able to actually find in the store.

Hi mlecho, welcome to the zo. I just returned from a 4 week vacation in Italy and I bought a 40 gig storage device prior to leaving and I loved it. Worked like a charm and it was about the size of a palm pilot. There is another thread that talks about storage devices. Here is the link it might help you out
This is the one that I have:
I hope this helps
Cheers , Emilie
Deja vu. lol
Sorry, I don't know the answer on this forum any more than I do on the other forum you joined to ask the question.
I thought I was going bonkers for a bit there! lol

The RCA Lyra™ 20GB Audio/Video Jukebox (RD2780) looks real good great reviews..... I was just wondering though.....does anyone in the forum own one.....and how is the download function from a cf card work???? in one review one person sez it cannot copy a full cf card of photos unattended?? what does that mean, that you have to upload 1 picture at a time???? that dont sound right????? if all goes well I will be getting one next week for my Birthday( so I was told...LOL :-D )

I have an Apple iPod that I can use to upload photos via a Belkin adapter. I just make sure I always have enought empty iPod disk space to allow me to download what I need. It's not as fast as I would like but it does work fine.
