    hi,

    i bought one of this at CP for just 199...

    yes, it is 20 GB.. not 120...

    but given that the 20GB harddisk alone would cost about 130 and xdrive another sum of $$$, i can assure u that this is a good buy..

    was at CP just now.. .and a lot of people were buying it.... even the Angmos..

    i attached a separately bought MS-CF adapter to download those pix stored on my memory stick and also some other from my CF card.. it works wonderfully...

    no need for additional drivers when used with Win XP or 2000... it just read as a another harddisk... with USB 2 interface, it's fast enough....

    the battery is suppose to be able to take about 3600MB of transfer... it's enough for a short trip... but of course bring the adapter just in case...

    only problem, no viewer but at this price, who can complain... hheheehe

    There is a known bug on X-drive that will result in possible lost of fragmented files when copying such files from memory card. The fragmented files comes about when you delete any image except the last one and then shoot again. This problem does not occur on X-drive II.

    Solutions :

    1) Patch the x-drive to firmware 1.04
    2) Don't erase any shots on the camera except the last one.

    The problem isn't a very serious one, in the 7000 images between me and my friend on a trip, we have problems with less than 5 of them. Of course, unless it happen to be the most important shot...................

    any one knows what hdd is enclosed?

    is CP Cathay Photo?
    yup, CP is Cathay Photo.

    So does anyone know what HDD is inside?

    well, here's what i found out so far..


    1. after transferring an almost 2GB of data from CF card, the battery indicator is still halfway.

    2. you can transfer/copy the same cf card twice or as much as you like because its creating a diffrent directory in every transfer (e.g. CF000001.. CF00002 and so on..)

    3.its the CHEAPEST portable device in town and working properly as expected...

    thanks for that info.

    So no one knows what brand of HDD is inside still? When you connect it to your PC, it should show up in device manager as disk drive right?

    Confirmed no stock, agent also no stock, no word on ETA. *sigh* The casing alone is selling at $145 at PK Computer at Funan, a 20GB 5400rpm 2.5" HDD is about $175.

    The casing seems a bit flimsy & only has 2 buttons...I guess for that price can't expect too much so long as it works well but no one has been able to reveal what HDD is bundled with CPs?

    Err....Vincent has a shop???

    For the sake of those who don't know, i.e. me.

    Where's is it located and what's the name of the shop?

    Will you be bring in more Teramates?

    I couldn't find any review of it online, was worried it may have corruption problems.

    Is the copy speed fast? how long does it take for a 1GB CF (assuming full).

    Wink Teramate @ Chamoxa!

    Wah... I just woke up and

    Anyway, just hang in there for a short space of time. I will update the pricing and personally call those who have PMed me.

    [Current List]

    1. Cyrilng
    2. normanlai
    3. wong_se

    [Waiting List]

    1. magixshoe
    2. hosm
    3. bearycute
    4. urban

    I must first inform all of you that I will try my best to match CP's selling price. I will be providing Hitachi 20GB 2.5" 4,200rpm.

    For those who wish to place an order (other than those who have already PMed me or posted here), call my office at 63388248 or 63396615 and ask for Vincent.

    I will try and "stun" all the teramates from my sim lim branch, if possible.

    For those who cannot wait for the next delivery of Teramates, I have X-Drive2 and Nixvue products on sale too.

    My shop is at Funan the IT Mall, #05-15, Chamoxa (Funan).
