“Delkin Devices Inc., maker of premium quality eFilm memory cards and other innovative products, announces a revolutionary new device that connects two USB devices together without a computer. The USB Bridge fits easily in the palm of ones hand, and enables users to copy files by attaching a digital camera directly to a variety of peripherals such as an iPod (and other MP3 players), USB Flash Thumb Drives, external hard drives, CD-R burners and memory card readers. It links your camera to a wide variety of USB mass storage devices without having to remove the memory card. The Bridge works with all the top camera brands including Canon, Fuji, Kodak, Nikon, Olympus and Sony. Delkin designed the Bridge for the traveling photographer who prefers the convenience of leaving their laptop at home but still needs a solution for storing and transferring files on the fly. The versatile USB Bridge is more than a helpful tool for photographers.”

Here’s a question: how is Delkin’s repackaging the USB Bridge any different / worse / better than HP branding its own iPod?

Here’s the difference between the Delkin and Belkin products as fas as I can tell:
Delkin’s has more buttons on it. Delkin’s is pretty darn ugly (just my opinion). Delkin’s has two USB ports, the Belkin has a built in docking cable. In other words: Belkin sells an iPod-specific Camera Link, Delkin sells a similar product in generic packaging. I am sure that both do similar things. But then you could’ve bought a Dell DJ instead of an iPod, they do similar things, don’t they?

Delkin’s box offers to burn your files to CDR, which means it can read FAT from the source device, compose an ISO-9660 image, and run a CD recorder.  Sounds like a lot more than the Macally box, though Macally does have a folder copy mode.  The SyncBox manual is on their site at http://www.macally.com/techsupport/drivers.html

The Macally Syncbox website Claims it can copy Files and Folders. probably by highlighting them if possible in ipod file manager or iHP140 file select, I don’t own an Ipod, but would love to put one back to back with my iRiver HP140 - using the Ipods “USB”/firewire lead and a SyncBox with a mini usb adapter just to see if i can get them to transefer files & or folders. A version of the Sync box with small cheap mobile phone size sreen like the ipods, with left(A) and right(B) window views.  Dom Tronics.

Speaking of the Dell DJ, does anyone here have a Dell DJ, and has anyone tried using either the Delkin or the Macally product with the Dell DJ?

Re the Macally box and iPod, the manual says it doesn’t work with MacOS or NTFS.  (Apparently it actually modifies the file tree and adds syncxxx folders, so it has to “speak” the file system; the Delkin just does a dump?)  So if the iPod uses the MacOS file system, it wouldn’t work.
