The Sony PSP isn't the only gaming portable that can double as a music and movie player. There is a 4GB hard drive available for the Ninetendo DS as well. The hard drive plugs into the GBA slot and the Max Media software into the game slot. It includes a conversion application that converts movies to a format your Nintendo DS can understand. It also resizes your digital photos so they fit on the Nintendo DS screen. And it plays MP3s as well.
