    location, eg battery life, speed, reliability. TIA.

    For years I've been using a 1st gen 20 GB Nixvue Digital Album with good
    results, though battery life is now an issue with larger image sizes. I
    just received an Archos Gmini 220 today. This is a 20 GB minidisk based mp3
    player with CF card reader built into an ~ 4"x3"x1" form factor, not
    counting cables and charger. Much smaller than the DA. Battery like is
    quoted as "up to 10 hours depending on start/stops and writes", I'm
    guessing used as an mp3 player you might get that.

    I bought a Vosonic Pro 300. It takes a 2.5inch/9.5mm HDD of any
    capacity. The shell costs $80 and add another $80 for a 40GB HDD. It
    can read SD/CF/Memory Stick/MMC/xD and also plays MP3s.

    If all you want is a HD then the Image Tank works well. If you want to burn
    CD's or DVD's then look at Addonics. If you want a device that will allow
    you to see the images then the Transcend Digital Album with a 2" screen may
    be for you.
