Sorry for the confusion. The Addonics MFR is not a field recorder,
it's a storage device for files recorded on flash card media. You'd
use it as an accessory for solid state recorders like the Marantz
PMD670 and Fostex FR2 to make a copy of your recordings when you are
in the field.=20
Here's how you would use it: Insert the flash card into the MFR, push
the "backup" button, and the contents of the card are copied
automatically to a CD or DVD for safe-keeping. Return the flash card
to the recorder, erase the original files, and use the flash card again.
There are several companies that manufacture portable storage devices
(PSDs) that will copy files from flash media. Like the MFR, they are
marketed primarily to owners of digital cameras. Unlike the MFR, most
PSDs record to small hard discs. While recording to hard disc is
faster than copying to a CD or DVD, the hard disc is much more
vulnerable to damage through accidental rough handling. So the MFR is
a more reliable solution.
Here's a review of last year's version of the MFR. It records to CDs
only. The 2004 MFR can record to 4.7GB DVD as well as 700MB CD.
