Default Portable storage devices

Hi,

Seeing the VP2030 Vosonic XS-Drive on Steves review, I went to buy it from http://www.xs-drive.com with a 30GB HD.

Works great with my Smartmedia cards (limited to 128MB...)
Provided with a nice carry bag so that the X'S-Drive won't be damaged and in which I can put my extra memory cards + the usb cable.

Thinking about getting a 5mb olympus that uses the new xD-Picture Card.

The drive you showed looks very cool but doesn't accept this card (yet).

Will any of these pocket drives accept it? I don't see how I could go away for more than a weekend with my camera and have enough storage. The pocket drive idea looks great.

X drive will be coming out with a new drive in next few weeks. Hope it will support XD cards.

This is what I use with my iBook.I use Firewire but it can be used with USB 2.0 or 1.1.Then I just plug into my tower to transfer what I want.I can edit on either machine depending on which one I'm using at the time....SWEET.

The X'S-Drive II has been announced on dpreview - it doesn't support xD cards - like the X'S-Drive I, it requires a CF adapter.
