Have you considered numbering your CF cards? That way you should be able to remember which you have used - particularly if you use them in order. Personally, I used to put empty ones in one ziploc bag and filled ones in another.

Personally, my Compact Flash cards are numbered, and I cycle through them in order. I am never confused about which ones have been used and which ones have not.

I only have 7 and I can count that far, when I get to 7, I go back to 1.

I always know which ones I need to download to my final storage location, and which ones are still empty.

Numbers are an elegant application here.

I also have one of those mylar address stickers with my info on the back of each of my cards, and my first name in large letters on the front.

My 7 Compact Flash cards are roughly the size of the USB cable and a change of batteries required for one of these hardrive based temporary storage solutions. And as a rough guess, slighly lighter than the cable and change of batteries.

Enjoy! Lon

About a year ago I bought a Vosonic tainer with a 40 GB HDD for about 180 €.

Untill now it's working perfect. Little to carry in a pocket and very easy to use.

So till the CF cards get really cheap I will use the phototainer.

Good luck.

i do number my CF cards, nevertheless it takes a lot of the guesswork out of the equation when you can offload your photos and format. I shoot a decent amount of sports and wildlifeto and I always shoot RAW, so there are times when I will blow through 12-15GB of photos in a single outing. Granted I will be deleting some of those once at home, but I don't want to have to think about that while I am out and about. To each his own - I'm sticking with my Hyperdrive. When it finally dies - something that all drives do eventually, I'll probably be looking at purchasing a few 8 or 16GB CF cards the way technology is progressing.
