There are several external hard drives with SD card readers specifically made for photographers..................Let Google be your friend.

i know that and i have used then in the past. but why not have the ability to copy from camera to HD/FD directly. you can back up you files with cheaper hard drives that don't need power.

So, what would power the hard drive/ssd? They do require power, you know. The drives with card readers are battery powered and the WD unit I have works rather well, with large battery capacity and fast reading. I think you are envisioning a solution looking for a problem.
