    Thumbs up

    I have a 40gb Archos Jukebox Multimedia that I use to transfer files with...I got it with the camera adapter. It's suppose to be 1.3 megapixel, not really the greatest but it's also a camcorder so it's a neat little trick there. I am able to make slideshows of the photos and what have you. It's nice.

    I saw on TV this company who made custom setups for amps and pc's, but they made also this stand for a ipod, you didnt even had to plug it in i think. But that makes it a standalone then, and i dont think ur on that way?

    When mini ipod came out a lot of people just bought it to strip the CF out because it was cheaper than buying one, I think it has 10 or 15 Gb

    The Ipod mini has a CF 4GB HDD.
    The Ipod mini is cheaper than buying the same CF drive retail, so people yank 'em out of the Ipods, then replace it with a larger CF card (512MB or 1GB).
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
