External disk with card reader


I want a system to download the photos of my digital camera while I am on travel. Is there anything like an external hard disk case powered with batteries and including a SD card reader? Even if it can not work with batteries an integrated card reader would be great. Of course it needs to work standalone, without a computer.

Does anything like that exist? Brand, model, price?

  2. Hmm Microdrive isnt SD, but CF or PCCard. And Im looking for an external storage system.

    I found the Fujitsu Handydrive Photo Edition:

    External HDD
    CF, MMC, SD, MS and SM Reader
    USB 1.0
    LiIon Battery
    Works without a PC

    anything like this out there?
