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 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.

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?
