I plug it directly into my Motif ES and it shows up as a USB device just like a stick would. It is a Maxtor 80 gb. I bought it a couple of years ago.

Peter:

Does it have a USB Port on it so you can back up some files to flash drives or do you have to disconnect it and plug it into your PC?

Thanks,

Mike

I found the cheap flash drives usually available on E-bay worked on my ES. Look for the ‘give away types’ (sports and corporate logos) I bought five for $4 and they all worked with my rig. Got a 500M (.5Gig) flash from Big Lots (one of those dollar stores) that also worked.

You’re right about some of the discount stores selling USB sticks that will work in the ES series. Even Walmart had some 1GB sticks in the checkout lanes, but they still wanted $10.99 a piece. Not exactly a closeout price. I’ll have to check out Big Lots to see if they have anything on the cheap.
