    Connect D750 to Samsung T5 SSD?

    I just ordered a Samsung T5 500GB SSD portable drive to add another layer to my back-ups. It has a USB C connector. If I buy a USB C to Mini-b cord, can I download directly from the camera to the drive?

    Thanks for any information,
    Bob

    no, it would be like connecting one Samsung portable to another Samsung portable - they both act like (dumb) file server/drives

    That's what I figured. Bummer.

    Stay sharp,

    I also have a D750 which was why I was able to make a quick response.
    It would not surprise me it some more modern cameras may allow a direct unload via a cable to a portable drive.

    Then again, I think they make SSD portables (made for photographers) that will indeed read a memory card.

    If you are looking for a field backup there are portable battery operated hard drives that automatically backs up SD cards. I've tried the WD disk. It works but is expensive
