I'm trying to decide between buying an AV400 (probably the AV420 because of it's size) and the PMP-140/120... The primary need is to store photos on from my digital camera (A Canon 300D). However I also want to be able to view movies & play music (Ripped from my CD's mainly) on it. The primary OS I use is Linux, so I need to be able to talk to it from my laptop (Debian) and server (RH9/Gentoo). I really don't want to have to rely on Windoze of any flavour I've found a few reviews on the AV400 and they are pretty much positive, except that some state it's a bit hard to rip & watch DVD's on it... And Linux is not supported in any way by Archos except by way of the AV400 being a usb-mass storage device. The reviews for the PMP-140/120 seem to be pretty few & far between... On the whole i'd really like to get one of these... But without a CF slot I need to know that I can transfer photos from my camera to the PMP without any problems... Anyone know if that's possible using the USB host functionality of the PMP to copy photos from the 300D to the PMP-100's? TIA Hamish.
