Re: Cool Accessory Alert: Download files into Archos without A Computer

:) I won't dicuss the "k3wlness", but the previous version of this
device (without lcd screen) was very usefull to me:
I used it on holidays, safari trip in kenya, to empty my 128m CF
(using a generic CF reader, canon cameras aren't usb mass storage
compatible) into a 1Gb usb key (my archos FMR wasn't the perfect
device for this use as it drains power from the syncbox batteries to
its own, but it works too).

By the way, USB 1 is ssssllllloooooowwww ;) keep cool while using
this kind of device.
