If i got limited CF cards, how do I backup my photos so that I can take more?

is there such a device whereby i can download photos from CF Card into a portable harddisk? then use the CF Card again?

Thanks

can try recycle the cf cards by transferring out the images and burn out the pics as cdr on the spot at those relevant stores...then at most bring back a pile of cdr's home =) thats if u r in city area.

wah $2.50 - $3.50 per Memory card is dirt cheap! I just came back from Australia Cairns and Goldcoast.... paid $9.90AUD per Memorystick i had! Burnt 2 * 256MB MS and pair $19.80....did i get ripped off or what?

But I still felt it was worth it. I was only on Day 4 of my 8 days in Australia and my 512MB of memorysticks were full! Paying $20 to free up 2 of my memory sticks is better than paying $200+ AUD for a new MSPro there!

oh forgot to ask, which parts of Australia are you going to? The places i went to(mentioned in the earlier post) had many photographic opportunities. Came back with about 1000 images :p After some quality control, stitching of a couple of panoramic shots and editing, i still had about 800 images that were worth keeping IMO :p

Example of activities with photographic opportunities include hot air balloon rides, snorkelling/diving at the GBR, the kuranda rainforest attractions/ sky rail rides, and many more :)
