MP3 player as hard drive backup
October 12, 2004

I was thinking about getting an MP3 player, but I would like one that I could also use as a backup hard drive for my computer running Windows XP Home. Does anyone know of one that can do that and has a big capacity?

and a utility such as Ghost
to back up your system.
However, if you simply want to carry data files with you, there are plenty of choices, ranging from plug-in USB players to full-fledged hard drive players with FireWire or USB 2.0.
For sheer capacity, check out Creative's USB 2.0-enabled 60GB Zen Xtra
If you want to avoid having to load drivers, get a player such as the 20GB iRiver H120
, which shows up as a drive letter without extra software.
