Just noticed a NEW, BUT NON-portable Sony DVDirect MC1 Multi-Function DVD Recorder And Player - VRD-MC1 with all flavors of flash card reader, and ability to record FIREWIRE/COMPOSITE video with internal MPEG-2 encoder. 

See this at: http://www.abtelectronics.com/product/22574.html  Manual link is found there also.

After reading the reviews, and owners manual, there is NO MENTION of reading anything other than camera image files off the flash, so MAYBE this burner IS NOT SO GOOD for audio file transfer and storage.

Less expensive than portable disc backup versions, very cool with video/photo features, and over twice the size of portable versions.

I was wondering if anyone has tried using this burner for audio file backup? 

If so, does it work, and how fast is it?

I was doing a search for OTG drives or other portable storage solutions when I came across this and thought this would be a good sticky.
Best info I found yet and maybe consolidate some posts that touch on this?

I agree that Nexto OTG (with internal Lithium rechargeable maybe good for 30Gig of transfer) is one of the best choices for compact size especially suited for CF type, and having battery power for one day's worth of higher bit/rate recordings.  For other types of flash cards like SD used in new R-09, Nexto OTG requires an external USB card reader.  This additional reader must be packed and plugged into the Nexto OTG's (active networking) USB port, or maybe use just a CF-to-SD slot adapter if there's such a product.


Sorry to resurrect an old thread. I thought I'd post this here, since there's been thorough discussion about the pros and cons about Nexto.
I haven't seen this mentioned on TS yet, but Nexto released a new model back in May 2007 that reads SD cards as well:
http://www.nextodi.com/en/product/

There are firmware updates to ND-2525 and ND-2325, to ensure support of 16GB CF cards. I get the impression that transfer times have improved too.

Did anyone try either of these later models?!

BTW, great research by Guysonic and Flintstone! +T
