Can anyone help, I am looking for a Portable Storage Device so I can copy my Flashcards whilst in 'the field'. I have a Nikon Dreamweaver which has been brilliant and provides a screen too. I know Job used to do one as did Epson but they do not appear available now. I am paranoid about losing images whilst away on a shoot, I can take my Pro Book but it is quite heavy and just another target for theft so I would prefer a Storage Device I can put in my pocket. Does anyone have any knowledge of any current models ?

Apologies my current and old device is a Nikon Coolwalker ! Where I got Dreamweaver from I have no idea !
Hi Mike....I have an Epson P-2000 which has seen very little use.
It is indistinguishable from new....I only used it for 2 holidays.
It's got a 3" screen and comes boxed with a stand/case etc...I'll take £100 for it,.
I'm hoping to be in Chester sometime in the next couple of weeks so if you were anywhere near you could have a look at it for nothing.
I have a P-3000 that does not support my new camera - what camera do you have? If MikeRCs P-2000 does not support it please let me know (I'm in Manchester so can also meet up.
I don't know how much you're prepared to spend, but these units are excellent.
I've been using the previous version of this for a few years, and have no hesitation in recommending them. They take standard 2.5" drives which are replaceable, so if you ever managed to fill it up you can fit a new drive and store the old one if you want to archive your files.
Amazon also do cheaper units which you might want to look at.
(I have a suspicion that Epson p 2000 can't handle modern raw files.....you might want to check that out)
I use my Samsung Phone and one of these
It also allows me to use a WD 500GB external disk to view pictures on my Phone.
While in India for a month I too used my Android - A Nexus 7 (£100 for first version) tablet and a USB card reader. Well two actually - I just copied the files from one SD card to a second SD card. It's a bit clunky and seemed to take ages to copy so I left it before going to bed, but works. Plus you can use the tablet to email, do basic edits, GPS, maps etc.
Depends where your going - I'd never lug a laptop round India with me.
Phone with Android 4 and USB OTG will go the same thing, just smaller screen.
The Nikon/Epson devices seem to have got out of fashion. Probably better built, but they seem pricey - £300 vs £120 for the Motorola G phone.
I would agree with Hugo........a small pocketable tablet (7" ??) might be the answer ?....connect the camera via a micro usb &
download the images direct to the tablet !!........
Thank you all for your advice and offers I will read through fully in the morning, your help is appreciated
I use a netbook with Raw therapee installed.

Long term this [netbook] is probably easier. £250 or so will get you a new basic model.
While Android is pretty slick, and the Google photo editor is actually quite decent, it becomes hardwork after a while. You start to wish for a PC, it's just 'easier'..... Buttttttttt I'd never want to lug a netbook round in a backpack in hot humid India for a month. Too much weight/size.
Just arrived back home at 1045pm will get some sleep and go through your replies am tomorrow
Once again thanks for the advice
