    Because it has evolved.

    Use a USB OTG and use a combination of your HP, HDD, USB hub, and SD card + reader.

    Handphone -> USB OTG -> Powered USB Hub -> Split into HDD and SD Card Reader

    Use a android handphone's file manager to transfer the files directly from SD/CF to your HDD.

    I have a friend using this product: http://www.apotop.net/product/apotop-wi-copy/

    sold during those PC/IT/Electronic Show. I believe there are other similar products from SanDisk, Kingston or Verbatim.

    I used to use Vosonic, but the price of the newer models is fairly high while those of laptops (as well as their weight) have come down so.. It became a little hard to justify getting such media devices.

    Anyways, because my current camera has dual card slots, there is no longer a need for that. If both cards fail, that's just life.

    I normally just lug my laptop and hdd there, making sure I backup every night to both. If laptop no space, then to HDD.

    File System type is exFAT. The file format is a different thing.

    Backup meaning having 1 original copy stored e.g. on HDD and another copy backed up in another HDD or DVD? Or u mean just transferring to a permanent storage location?

    For holidays I usually bring a netbook along. I use it to backup photos on two portable harddisks.

    And how do you transfer your files from one card to the other? Backup is about creating a second copy of data.

    I used to bring my iPad 64GB & a "camera connection kit" along,
    But soon realize dat iPad's limitation is terrible, limited space n rediculously troublesome as compared to a laptop,
    Than I came across this http://www.sandisk.sg/products/wireless/flash-drive/ on weekend,
    $89.90 for 16gb
    $109.90 for 32gb
    Forgot the price for 64gb,

    What attracted me was to able to import n export or streaming even on apple iPhone, iPad or android(wireless)
    With expandable micro SD up to 128GB,
    Wondering if any kind bro have it n maybe a brieft review?
