Re: Storage solution using PDA

Thanks buys for your suggestions. But it seems i did not made my question clear enough. My PDA is having CF and SD slots. My camera can use only Memory Stick. Hence i need a mechanism to transfer images from 128 MB memory stick to 1GB CF card, without using computer (or notebook).

I know a CF adapter which can take MS.

thanks

not a computer geek because it's pretty involved. People on
Brighthand had gotten the e740 to read external USB HDs, which
shows up as a USB Disk. See discussions here:

Alpha-level driver hacks that won't even read from a USB hard drive
fast enough to be more than an experiment won't convince others of
the feasibility of using PDA's for digital image file transfer
storage.

The reality is that presently ONLY the iPaq 3600-3900 series PDA
with an added PCMCIA sleeve is proven to work, and works
exceptionally well. ANY other PDA, including the Dells and 1900
iPaq (no sleeves), Viewsonics, and probably Toshibas are a guess at
best and wasted money spent on unuseable attachments at worst.

And yes, there is a CF> PCMCIA socket adaptor, but that is a
hardware failure risk to the PDA and questionable for dependable
performance. Experiments and image file integrity is a poor
mixture.
