Portable Digital Photo Storage for RAW files

by simes2 / May 25, 2005 7:16 AM PDT

I'm trying to decide between hard drive (HD) and DVD burner portable storage devices that I can take on trips to download Canon RAW files from my CF card. Once deciding between HD vs burner, then I need to select one with extra batteries. Any suggestions or comments are welcomed.

Compact Flash interface for downloading photos. It's $84.50 at

You do need to add a hard drive. It is designed for the hard drives used in portable computers. Mine is a 30gig drive. I download photos to it on the road, and use at for temporary portable storage at home.

That model is a killer.

It also works on USB 1.1 ports, Windows ME and up without a driver. It's what I take on travel when I can leave without the laptop.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
