Default V-MP3H digital storage device

Does anyone have any experience with this unit? I've read that the Archos units have serious problems with file corruption and am looking for alternatives.

The only problem is where the storage? (ie where does it download to?) It looks like a player only... (The Archos has yet to support the microdrive).

Make sure that anything you buy does a verify after the copying like this one:

File verification after every transfer
It doesn't do you any good if after you downloaded and erased the flash cards to take new pictures, then back home to find out that the ones saved are corrupted! Or you can spend time reviewing the pictures with the Archos (and use up it batteries) and can't download again... ops: ops: ops:

Also Firewire is preferable over even USB2.0 when a device can store data upward of 10G!
