**Help on mobile storage needed tank drives etc etc **
Hi guys I would be makin' a trip up to thailand for 3-4 weeks
I would like to know what would be my best bet on storage.
I heard Tank or X drives have problems ie: out of 300 images u transfer in, 1 or 2 might go missing, is this ture ? any one using this face problems ?

I am using a type of storage devoce called Super DigiBin by Leading Spec.
As per all hard drives, yes there is a danger that certain segments of the drive is damaged/defective (due to manufacturing fault/mishandling etc).
I think it is almost impossible to check which segment of yr drive is defective until u use it.
So there u go, u may wanna consider a 1G CF card as an option...
