what would be my best option for digital storage devices on a limited budget. I want something that will store a lot of high quality pictures and would require you to take a computer. I was thinking a harddrive that let you load threw usb or xd or somthing to link my camera to my mp3 player. I don't have much money so I need to get the most reasonable bang for your buck.

The cheapest solution might be a portable CD Burner. Media is cheap and you get backups of your pictures (a good thing.) You put in the CF card and it burns it to the disk.

How much money are you willing to spend?

Yes, Cd's are the best solution. However keep in mind that you should make copies of them every five years. they do NOT last forever. "Archival Quality" is a contradition in terms, although you should use the best you can get.

I wouldn't need to keep copying them! I am looking for something to put them on when I travel. I have access 1.5 terabites to stor pictures when not on the road. Looking for a solution for vacation. camera takes xd media. I was looking for a solution under $50.

Thanks

IMO, it`s hard to find a nice solution for 50$, but I had the same though, my solutionwas to burn on CD when I almost fill all my cards, but of course, you have to be in or near cities.

PS: I mean to use photo shops CD burning services.

$50 is a rough figure I would like to stay close to. It could be somthing that is slightly more.
