    Hello all,
    I've been looking around for a new CF reader as well as a new portable HDD for my photos. Before I buy anything, I'd like to consider getting something that combines these functions. Is there such a device? If there are a multiple, I'd love to find one that's small, lightweight, and durable.

    Thanks as always,
    wmmk

    ^Ah, looks interesting, thanks. Is it durable enough to use portably, though? I wouldn't be walking around with my HD turned on, but it'd definitely get jostled around in my bag on the subway (while off, of course).

    Some HDD-based PMP's act as USB-Hosts as well.

    I can't really name one instantly, but if you look into Archos or Samsung offerings, you'll find a large-HDD based PMP's with USB-Host built in.
    But it wouldn't be "one solution" I guess. :( But at least you wouldn't need a computer to put stuff into your portable device.

    The one linked with above poster has PATA interface, try to find one with SATA interface :)
