SD card to SD card transfer?

Hi Andrea,

There are indeed SD card duplicators.  Depending on your volume, you might want to look at  If you're only doing 1-to-1 duplication, you might be best off finding a USB bridge which will let you back up SD cards (and other flash memory types) straight onto a USB device.  The USB device might be a series of flash devices or it might be a solid-state HDD in a ruggedised external enclosure.   THe difference is that the duplicator is at about $7000, the USB bridge is about $30.  There was, about 5 years ago, a portable SD cloning device from Panasonic but I'm not sure it made it to market.  You can then get small Pelican cases to weatherproof and shockproof everything.

There must be some small device that can both read from and write to SD cards. Any recommendations, or barring such a device, and suggestions for work-arounds?
