SD card to SD card transfer?

Hello Andrea,

I have never tried them, but I recall someone once suggesting that devices like this one might be good for the kind of situation you describe:

It doesn't copy from one SD card to another. Rather, it's a portable battery-powered hard drive that basically copies all material from any SD card you put in them. So, it offers a kind of backup. It's marketed to people who want to back up their photos without a computer. I guess one would want to test that it works all right with sound files, too, but I think the devices are designed to be pretty stupid and just copy whatever they find on a card you put in them.

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?
