I have been using the Digimate II plus portable harddisk (bought in Sim Lim last year). I use it mainly to copy photos during my travels.
I am pretty upset that the pins for the CF card are made of such inferior quality. Even though I am extremely careful while inserting the CF card into the slot, I was surprised to see two pins bent.
I tried to set them right using a tiny screwdriver, but no luck
Can you experts suggest what i should do now ? Would you know if the CF card slot alone can be replaced so that I don't have to throw away the entire casing ?
The options I am considering are :
1. Throw away the Digimate II plus casing and get the Digimate III. Use back my 80Gb harddisk with Digimate III.
2. Get a Vosonic casing and use my existing 80Gb harddisk with it.
Any good/bad experiences to share with either of these brands ? I really don't want to touch another Digimate, but hoping that the quality would have improved.
