    Backing up Cards on the Go?

    All,

    I know I've seen products like this in the past, but for the life of me can't seem to find one right now.

    Basically, they are a combination card reader and portable USB hard drive that allows you to dump your card contents to the drive to create a backup while in the field.

    I'd like to get something like this before my next trip (soon!) and was wondering if anyone had any experience with specific brands/models that they could recommend.

    Thanks in advance!

    - Bill

    Try this B&H page:

    It's pretty much got all the usual contenders on it.

    Kathy,

    Thanks for the link. That is indeed exactly what I am looking for. Any info on which ones to look closer at or avoid?

    Thanks!

    Re: Backing up Cards on the Go?

    So my research/needs are pointing me in the direction of this device:

    http://www.hypershop.com/HyperDrive-.../hdcsu-320.htm - a Sanho HyperDrive ColorSpace UDMA 320GB.

    Does anyone have any experience with this product line?

    Thanks!

    I researched this recently and decided instead to buy a 250 gig netbook. For the same price or less it does a whole lot more.

    Yup, that was pretty much my solution: netbook. I can use it for web browsing and journaling as I travel, as well as dumping all my cards and then backing up the whole shmeer to an external hard drive, so I had two copies of everything in case something got stolen/broken along the way.
