MemPlug Compact Flash by Portable Innovation Technology

>> Read Review (Rating 5/5) <<

Expand your memory with MemPlug Compact Flash Adaptor for Visor handhelds. Compact Flash is one of the most affordable and flexible removable memory solutions on the market today. Users can store virtually unlimited amounts of data on a single Type I Compact Flash Card (up to 256 MB). You'll find Compact Flash in digital cameras, MP3 players and other electronic devices that require plenty of memory. And now this technology can be used with your Visor handheld for a variety of storage and multi-media solutions.

With MemPlug, you can store an unlimited amount of data onto any 3.3V Compact Flash Card. Backup your entire Visor handheld, then remove and store the data separately from your handheld for safe keeping. Snap the Compact Flash card back into MemPlug, and data can be restored with the click of a button, even after a hard-reset. You can also selectively transfer files from your Visor to the Compact Flash card, so you save memory by carrying only the files you currently need.

Want to show off your pictures? With MemPlug, you can view JPEG images taken from a digital camera right on your Visor handheld! Just pop in your Compact Flash card and it's set to goŚno wires, no downloading and no hassles. Playback gMovie video files, or create your own video and animation with gMovie Maker, one of six included self-installing applications. MemPlug comes complete with updateable program flash memory for future software upgrades.

I agree..wort support ever
I am a student and downloaded important stuff then couldnt access it. I didnt know that I had to pay 20.00 more dollars for pi direct to actually see what I downloaded. Then i wanted my unlock codes and emailed them 5 days ago and still dont have any response. I am returning it tomorrow

Worst support ever
I recently purchased a MemPlug and decided that it was only useful as a backup module unless I purchased PiDirect and was able to directly access data via compact flash memory. I paid for the software (Pidirect) through Handango one week ago and still cannot use it. After two days I was given a non-functional unlock code. I immediately emailed them about it and received an email from Patrick Lin (support staff member) asking for the RegCode. That was three days ago and I haven't heard a word back from them despite two more attempts to email them asking for help! Basicly I have paid for PiTech's software and they won't let me use it. I am so in shock that I have been ignored after purchasing non-functional software that I can't even decide if I'm mad or if I've just been cheated of my money. I also don't know if this is just the lack of responsibility of a few individual staff members or indicative of the companie's support as a whole. Either way, I think it is critical that the public and perhaps PiTech be aware of thier business practices. I'm hopeful that I will recieve a code today (dissapointed it has taken so long of course) since this is potentially such a useful peice of hardware but if I don't get what I paid for I'm going to try to get my money back and that includes the module.

Good unit, but...
Works great, built in software is good, worth the money since they offered a rebate. But it does eat batteries up, kills a set in less than 2 days when off... wow...

Competition bringing a better product
I'm beta testing VFS software for the FlashPlus and other Kopsis-supported CF adapters. It's really great, and best of all, really compatible, even with 3.1 devices! Wait a bit and see. The FlashPlus will most likely be a better product in a little time.

Battery Drain
Since I bought this unit from Palmgear.com. I have been very distraught over the drain of batteries. It even occurs when unit is shut off. I tried two brands of CF. Sansdisk 64 and MR Flash 128 and both drained after 24 hours of non use. I had the unit on for a total of 15 minutes. So this leads to support. Palmgear says "Once we receive your return, we will promptly address this issue". Heck I want a new one now Sorry for the rambling

I vote this as the most useful Module of them all!
I waited and waited for a good CF module and this was it. I looked at the early Matchbook Drives and Innopocket Drives but I wanted a Memplug version with CF because of the included software and flash upgradability. I love this module. I can backup my VPR, read uploaded stories, watch videos (without sound, the gMovie 2.0 comes with sound but it sounds horrible on the Visors), see pictures that I have taken with my digital camera. There were initial problems with use of the module due to the handspring 1.4 update (remove that back to the 1.1 and it should fix mopst of the problems with running the modules). Other dislikes, that PiDirect wasn't included, the pictures I take on my digital camera and view are really small. Similar to the 1.8" LCD on the camera. They should make it so the whole screen can be use to view the picture. I highly recommend this module for everyone!

great product
not sure where the negatives are coming from on this - maybe earlier versions of palmos have problems. I have a prism, I got the card, put it in, did the most recent firmware update to 1.62. No problems and it works great. I have an old 8MB cf card in it. I tested it with a 128MB viking cf and that worked as well. True plug and play, good software. Go buy these now while they are still in stock.

After updating firmware, it doesn't work any more!
I did a firmware update and now all of the Cf cards that worked before do not work at all. For a product that comes in an official HandSpring box and is sold over -the-counter, it's a rather shakey device... doesn't seem like a "Plug & Play" device. Too much configuring for me. I just wanted it to work properly. It's going beck to the store tomorrow.

very versatile and upgradable
This is a high quality item. You can expand your visor cheaply, and without hassle. The Plug and Play ability the programs have is awesome. I give it a 100%
