FYI: The SD Card Duplicators listed on Amazon are falsely advertised - at
least the NexCopy one.
The ad makes it seem that the duplicator is standalone, but it is not. I
know because I have it.
*NexCopy SD Card Duplicator* (NOT standalone) $1,4000
*DIY SD Card Duplicator $400
*(Exact same as above, but you make your own box and you get CF, SDHC,
MemoryStick, etc, etc, etc)
2x Pluggable USB Hub
20x Kingston Card Reader
1x Make a box to hide the cables
*DIY Standalone SD Card Duplicator with Touch Screen *$900
(Same as above, plus fun little goodies inside)
1x Gumstix Touch Screen kit
