I actually have one of those type of drives. Sitting in a box in my garage. Much too slow for my D800 files. Did use it with my Oly E-1.

Mine was made by I/O Magic and came with its own power brick and a 20 G drive which I then replaced with a larger drive. Fits in a nice padded zipper case with room for the USB cable..

I had one of those (I can't recall the brand) with around 20GB too. I only did a single picture transfer from my Oly xD card (files were fine in the xD card) to the unit, only to find out when I got home that all the files were lost due to corruption. I therefore never used it again as I lost trust in its reliability.
