Wondering if any of you wandering souls have an idea for backing up your recordings while away from your computers for an extended period of time.
Here's my deal...
I'm heading to Spain for a couple weeks and have decided to take a small rig along (M10, MixPre, 4060s) I have a couple of 16gb microsdhc cards to take, but it occurs to me that I don't have a laptop and, as far as I can tell, won't have a way in place to backup any recordings until I return from my trip. Oops.
One thing I do have is a 32gb iPad and I will be purchasing the camera connection kit over the weekend. From what I've read it won't handle data transfer from anything but a camera, but I though it might be worth a try connecting the M10 straight to it. Maybe the files will transfer as .movs? Anyone try this yet? But between the M10 and my camera I wonder how far this will actually get me.
UPDATE - The iPad camera connection kit doesn't like connecting straight to the M10. It gives the error of "This accessory uses too much power." I've temporarily misplaced my microsd card reader. Once I find it I'll try again, but expect to get a similar error.
I have seen a company that makes a portable backup drive that has an sd slot which is an option, albeit a pricey one. But I'm just wondering if anybody here has a more clever solution.
In the meantime, is there anyone located in Madrid or Barcelona that might be able to transfer media to DVD?
