iPod Photo is no digital photo wallet

If you use a device such as the Belkin Digital Camera Link for iPod or the Belkin iPod Media Reader to import photos to your iPod Photo, the imported photos won't appear on the iPod Photo screen while browsing photos or viewing a slide show.

If you want to view the photos you imported to iPod Photo, load them on your computer from iPod and then use iTunes 4.7 or later to sync them back to iPod Photo.

I am a bit disappointed in the iPod Photo. It had really great potential. I agree that video would not be worthwhile on the iPod, but this new iPod Photo could have truly been a "Photo iPod" if you could import a roll from your memory card with the Belkin iPod Media Reader and then use the iPod to view those photos on that nice color screen. This would surely be a boon to photographers in the field both novice or professional. Imagine having 40 or 60 GB of space to transfer and view your photos with.

I hope, like many I am sure do, that Belkin is in the works of a new iPod Media Reader that will automatically show the photos on the iPod without having to first sync with the Mac.

At first neither Apple or Belkin was saying anything about this, but at least Apple has put to rest the rumors by releasing this KB document.
