You don't need Windoze to burn CDs with your music, there are tools that will run on Linux as well and, though I have no personal experience, maybe even on macs.

And you couldn't do much worse than windows media player to burn your CDs.

Thank you John, I do have a Windows 7 machine and have ripped songs from my cd's to my pc or have burned cd's with music I've download to my pc.

This is just to have music in as many places as possible, I'm not really worried about sound quality since listening through headphones/earbuds is less than optimal.

When I want good sound I listen to my audio system.

Use dropbox, skydive or other to easily access and manage your eBooks over all your devices. I does it over my gadgets and feels much simple to manage them.

You wouldn't want a dongle-type thing sticking out of a tablet. Guaranteed damage very quickly. If you want expanded memory, buy one with a micro-card slot.

Nothing 'wrong' with a Nexus, that can't be managed. But I only envisaged something that could be attached for a few minutes to transfer files to and from the device's memory.

I hope that's faster than the iomega iconnect my son bought us for Christmas .... ! Man, that's slow across wifi....

But I was considering maps on a flash drive, loaded onto my tablet according to where we find ourselves - that device looks good, but won't help me on those occasions ...

Not to worry, all things are possible

That's exactly what a USB OTG cable does.

Indeed, but if the drive itself had the necessary linkage, there would be no need for a cable as well.

Why have two pieces hanging out when one could do?

There's one big thing wrong with a Nexus 7 - it can't hold on to a wi-fi connection. You knew about the lack of expandable memory when you bought it, so that doesn't count as a problem.

Yes, I have one. I'm not in love with it, but it's very useful. The wi-fi thing is a big minus.

?? Never had a problem with the WiFi on mine, of course I've only used it a couple of different places so don't have experience using a bunch of different connections. It would suck if it dropped connections all the time though.
