Hi,¬*I am considering buying a sanyo hd1.¬* I was wondering what methods you who have tapeless cameras use for storing and backing up data off of the SD cards?¬* Also has anyone tried to use one of the 5th generation ipods as a temporary storage device for data when on the road?¬* Is there a way to do this?¬* The video ipod or some other small video player would be a whole lot easier¬*¬*then hauling around a laptop.¬* Thanks for your help.

There are several threads discussing this topic in the forum you may want to look at, the last one named Storing Video on an IPOD. Below my answer

If you have an mp3 player with a hard disk like the Ipod, you can download files from the C6 to the Mp3 player disk using what is called a USB bridge. There are a few around like

or http://www.memorex.com/html/products_detail.php?section=3&CID=28&SID=3 3&PID=1018&FID=158&opento=28


The only drawback with these devices, is that the transfer speed is only USB 1 so not too fast.

If you do not mind investing a bit more, you can buy small portable hard disk with USB TO GO, which allow them to download from any other USB device like the C6. Some of them also come with an integrated card reader which allows you to download by inserting the card.

Although portable disks are mostly used for Photos, they do not care what type of data you store on them, so you can transfer any type of files on them photos, Video, excel sheets, music.(including these in mp3 players)

As for beeing able to play the video on the Archos, you need to check what formats are supported by the Archos, and I would suggest to make a test first. The C6 has an Mpeg4 format, but not all Mpeg4 are the same, so the chances that you would be able to play the video on the Archos are slim to none.

To be checked though
