PORTABLE STORAGE PROBLEMS???

We all experience storage capacity problems but having multiple storage cards for your camera could be a little pricey and adds clutter to your camera bag.

But now there's an alternati
ve to all your digital storage requirements and its called DIGIMATE.



The DIGIMATE is a small portable storage device that could accomodate a 2.5 inch Hard Disk (not included) similar to the ones being used on Laptops regardless of capacity. You can Copy/Backup your digital files from your memory cards (CF, SD, XD, Memory Stick/Pro, MMC and SMC) without the use of a Laptop or a PC.

Transferring your data from the DIGIMATE to your PC or Laptop is easy since it features High-speed 2.0 USB Connector.

The DIGIMATE (with a 40gig HD included) will not cost more than a High-end / Branded 2gig CF card.

Some of these devices have issues with large capacity flash cards.

Do you folks know if this machine works with 2GB SD cards?

Many thanks!

Hey Adam,

I tried using a 1GB SD Card with the machine. works great. I'm not sure with a 2 GB though. If I get the chance to backupa 2GB SD Card using this device. I'll let you know.
