I managed to pic one of these up on Saturday (there were 2 left in store) so they are still available.

***Please note: Only FAT32!***

Description:
The USB Anywhere connects two mass-storage devices (media reader, digital camera, hard drive) using USB cables to transfer photos, songs, and files from one device to the other-all without a computer. Use the Belkin USB Anywhere to copy files from your digital camera to your external hard drive, between two MP3 players, and/or between USB flash-memory drives, external hard drives, CD-R burners, and memory-card readers. The compact USB Anywhere is ideal for traveling, as it eliminates the need to use your computer for photo storage. When your digital camera's media card gets full, you can use USB Anywhere to download the images to your portable hard drive and take more pictures.

Info:
Fits easily into your pocket with compact, lightweight design.
Saves you money by eliminating the need to buy multiple memory cards.
Indicates transfer status with flashing LED.
Includes a 5V, 1.5A optional power supply.
Installs with Plug-and-Play and hot swap convenience.
Transfers files at up to 12Mbps.
Operates on 3 AAA alkaline batteries.

PC World tend to show OOS online when there are only a few left so you might have to go into store to look for it.

EDIT: Showing "In Stock" at Chelmsford

Why would you vote something cold because stock has gone ? This is called hot deals, and its a hot deal ! :x

Voted hot

Useful gadget @ a great price.. if you can find it

To those in the Northwest, there is stock available for reservation at Blackburn voted hot

None in West Midlands either

"None in West Midlands either"

showing up as available in store in Birmingham.

none anywhere in the south west/westcountry

none in Hampshire or surrounding, another bargain from PC World that remains elusive to most of us.
I wonder if someone in PC WOrld upper management sits and laughs at us trying to track these XXX.97p deals, we know that there are PC World employees that watch these pages so come on guys prove us all wrong and post where the stock is of these Hot Deals. Better still, list them when they first appear and we could get in first!

didn't read listing properly, please ignore

yep just reserved one in Birmingham - lets see if it is there tomorrow

Glad someone managed to get one!

Just got one from PC World, Ayr. They had two, and it was obvious they were returns as the packaging had been opened.

Using the mains adapter, I tried;
Nikon camera to flash drive (fat32) - did work.
Canon camera to flash drive (fat32) - didn't work after several attempts - found out this unit does not work with Canon cameras - confirmed by Belkin
flash drive to flash drive - did work
MP3 player to flash drive - didn't transfer, but did start to charge the mp3 player which is fair enough.

I wouldn't trust it to copy my photos from camera to say a flash drive, and then scrub the camera's memory chip. Only good if you want a backup, and even then you don't know if it has transferred.

I also had to carry out the transfer in a darkened room as the LEDs are very faint.

Summary, not worth the trouble. Going back tomorrow
