Hi someone gave me this legacy device and i know it seems to be a card reader and a hard drive in one. Fully portable and able to copy the contents of cards to itself. Am i right? I put a cf card in it and cpressed 'copy' button and it showed on the display that it is doing that....seems to be copying to the hard drive? There is a big HD displayed on the screen when turned on. I get no reaction from either linux or windows when i connect this via either usb type ports at the side of the unit. I typed in a terminal in linux 'lsusb' and got nothing. Windows xp did reacte either. Is it a mac device?http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj202/rapattack_album/dscf3310Modified.jpg

I do not recognize it but from the description it appears to be a memory card reader with a hard drive built in, basically a portable hard drive with a card reader. If it is not recognized, it may just be completely dead. It does not look very new and probably died some time ago but they could not bring themselves to throw it out, or they purchased it a a garage sale for a few bucks and could not get it to work either....

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Sorry i forgot to mention i can hear the hard drive make its noises inside. The display is only shown when the button is pressed to turn it on...the power button. It works by charging. I used a power adapter that was was a multi one that you can change the numbers and plugs. I don't know the name of the thing really he he. I also had to find the usb cables for it as it had nothing. So it does turn on and off...plus it copies data from the card you stick into it...at least that is my conclusion....i thought it might be a mac device and thats why it is not seen by my pc's?
