I'm looking to get a battery powered CD-R burner so I don't have to drag around my laptop on location. I've found two manufacturers so far Delkin, Kanguru and the one that's Rolando reviewed.

I'm sure there are others.

Anybody have any experience with them and can list specific brands/models?

Delkin and the Kang are ok, but drain fast.

I honestly like the flashtrax portable HD. Price is in the realm when you consider 40gb HD vs how many cd's and dvd's over time.

Goes fast from the card to the HD then the card to the disc.

But otherwise, the roadstor pro version fixed some of the power problems and will burn to DVD unlike its predecessor.

Link to flashtrax XT

But , all in all. I lust for the flashtrax XT model. Nice little screen, portable, power effecient, plays MP3s to. It's all that

I already have a portable hard drive, an old Xdrive, which works fine for dumping cards, but I need to burn discs....

Yep,... I owned one brand kind... I forget off hand what it was.. like an Acpacer.. or some mess like that.. I forget..

Well, the first one was built with a major malfunction that occurred every time I attempted to record a CD.. the second one worked just the way it was suppose to.....very slowly..

I just use my laptop computer now.. For one, I use a Lexar firewire CF reader,...that was at least 5 times faster than that piece of junk.. and it burns CD's much much faster, in addition,...it's a computer...you can preview the images,... or run PS..etc... You really get what you pay for...and in my experience, it made me buy an iBook..

Look into buying a 12" laptop with firewire ports.. those so called "fast" usb 2.0 readers are not quite as fast as a firewire.. Oh,...and I use 80x & 40x Lexar cards too..that does help a lot..

What JP Said...

Except I went through three Apacer burners before I got one that worked (sort of).

Sounds like the Apacer burner is right out.

Pity, the -100 model looked like it was exactly what I wanted.

Any thoughts on any other brands? What about the Kanguru, aside from battery life - or lack thereof.

Funny you mentioned that...or should I say "ironic"...rather than "funny" given the situation of that god awful piece of [censored] [censored].

The second one I bought,...I sold to another studio in town,... and the guy called me a few times, asking for help with it...apparently, he had some problems with it as well...and that was the one that "worked"..

However, that was when memory cost a lot of money.. today,...for the price I paid for that piece of [censored], ....300 bucks,.. I can buy 3 gigs of 80x CF cards.. that slow piece of [censored] was limited to slowly burning less than 700mgs of card space..if it managed not to [censored] it all up!

Yep,... Apacer sucks!
