I recently bought this camera and I love it so far. I was little frustrated with Mpeg 4 player but I got the answer from this website. I downloaded AVI converter and it works great.

Anyway, I bought 1g memory stick and I am waiting for it right now. However, I don't think 1gig alone is enough for me to take to any kind of vacation if I am planning to use this camera as camcorder and photo.

Cheapest way to solve this problem instead of buying expensive memory cards,
1. get card reader for my IPOD. But I just found out they don't support Memory Stick Pro.

2. get direct connect to IPOD (about $70). But I heard it's freaking slow as hell.

3. get Wolverine memory card reader with 20 gig. I found this from B and H Photo. It's $200 with $20 rebate.

4. get Archos Gmini 400 with 4-in-1 card reader. approx. $350.

1 and 2 are the cheapest way to go but it's like a ghetto version.
I think I am going to go with option 3. But like $150 more, I can get Gmini 400 with 20 gig and which can play mpeg4 as well as other photo and mp3 player.

What do you think guys? What would you do? Do you have any other solution?

p.s. I can't seems to find if Gmini400 with 4-in-1 card reader supports Memory Stick Pro. They said it supports Memory Stick but I am not sure if they support Pro thought. Anyone got this?

Do you have a laptop? I carry my laptop everywhere I go, so storage isn't a problem for me...

I do have a laptop but that's too big to carry it around. Let's say I go to Paris. I will probably will go around the city all day and I don't think 1 gig memory card will hold all the photos and video I am taking with DSC M1. I just can't carry a laptop just to dump the data. I really need a portable storage.

I really want to know if Gmini 400 can play my mpeg4 and 4-in-1 card can read my memory stick pro. Anyone knows?

I don't think the Archos 4-in-1 CF adaptor has MS-PRO, but this product has:

(or search google: "memory stick pro compact flash converter (or adaptor)")

This is a link to another seller, who deals with Archos accessories - so this means the CF adaptor will work for GMini:
