Picture of How to back up memory cards without a computer

When I'm on holiday I like to back up all the photos a take. and to sort out which photos to delete. and upload the good ones to facebook.

The only thing is when on holiday I don't want to lug around a laptop.

The solution I have found is to use a PDA with a compact flash slot.
And I'm able to back up all types of memory cards.

Step 1: Equipment needed

I originally thought what's the point of this. Memory on a pda is minimal at best, but after reading it again, i realised you were uploading to a flikr account.

Great idea. I wish i had thought of this when I took photos at my brothers wedding. I had to lug my laptop around with me, and i could have used my palmtop instead.

Goes to show, simplest ideas are the best!!!

 I had a 4GB card in the phone. and I also had an 8GB compact flash card I could use in the back pack. I also had a 40GB asus wifi hard drive i could transfer files to. so the PDA gave me lots of options and lots of storage.
