Apacer promises to release its second generation portable CD burner in December. It is a stand alone unit that copies images directly from cards to CD's and appears to resolve most or all of the shortcomings of the CP100 by allowing multiple session recording, disk spanning and adds a screen by which images can be viewed. It also can be hooked up to a TV or other monitor for slide shows. If it performs up to its advertising, it may be an ideal solution for permanent storage of images while traveling, especially for those of us who don't own or want to carry a laptop around. The model is Disc Steno CP200.
