Hi, all.
        I thought this might be of interest to those who have cameras and
Archos units, and wish to transfer files from one to another. I heard of a
device on the list earlier, but I don't think it was this one.

A Palm-Size Bridge Eliminates the Computer as Middleman

   Adam Baer

   D igital cameras, MP3 players and tiny U.S.B. flash-memory drives have
   made it easier to transport pictures, music and data. But they have
   limited capacities, forcing users to transfer their files to a
   computer to make room for more snapshots or a different album.

   That is what inspired Delkin, a company in Poway, Calif., to develop
   the U.S.B. Bridge, a palm-size product that can connect two U.S.B.
   devices - hooking a digicam to a printer, say, or a U.S.B.
   flash-memory drive to a scanner - without the help of a computer. With
   the bridge, digital photographers who are also digital music consumers
   can economize on memory cards by transferring their shots to digital
   players like the Archos Jukebox that have U.S.B. ports of their own.

   Likewise, business travelers can trade presentations kept on
   inexpensive flash-memory drives. And musicians can copy and distribute
   songs by sending MP3 files to stand-alone CD burners.

   The U.S.B. Bridge, which costs $70 and is available at
   as well as at photography and electronics stores, works with most

   Touching one button initiates file transfers that keep all original
   information intact, copying everything on one device to another and
   requiring you to delete the original files one by one. While
   eliminating the need to copy files individually, this feature does not
   permit the user to pick and choose, making it impossible to transfer
   specific songs or albums from one 10,000-song iPod to another. Adam
