Silly question, but…

Does this device copy files to the iPod?  Or, is it merely a USB 2.0 card reader with an iPod dock slapped on top of it?

“Includes external USB 2.0 cable, USB A to mini-B cable, and adjustable spacer to fit various iPod models”

From the Edge site…sounds like two cables, one for the card reader and one for the dock. So it sounds like you need 2 USB ports for this, just less desk real estate.
Also, it sounds like what you said…a dock with a card reader attached. With 2 cables, it sure sounds that way. So no direct transfer of iPod to cards.
