Subject: Re: USB on the go
From: Sa'ad SAEED (saad_nl_at_yahoo.com)
Date: 2003-08-04


I thought about it and here is what im gona do.
I take my camera+cable and jbr+cable with me whenever
i go to holidays. Since both of them are plug and play
u dont need to take software with u. Then just ask a
relative who has a PC or laptop to let u transfer
everything from the camera on their HDD, and from
their PC to ur ajbr and when u get back home, download
it back to ur PC.
