(Not really a software question, more of a hardware/lifehack...)
My boss uses an Olympus DM-20 digital voice recorder (lovely machine) to record talks he gives. It stores about 20 hours of (quite) high-quality digital audio, but over the coming two months he will be travelling and recording very much more than that. Usually, I travel with him and carry a laptop to transfer talks as we go, and burn them to CD. But this time I'm not going, so I'm looking for advice on ways - if it's possible at all - to archive these recordings on the move, without him needing to carry a computer. The recorder has built-in memory, so just swapping to another module isn't an option. It connects to PC via a usb cradle, and is mounted as an external drive. So I want to know if anyone knows of a system I could use - an external drive or powerful pda, perhaps - that would allow usb syncing. Anybody?
