That's not what I'm asking. I never want to connect the R1 for transfer. I
want to pull the CF card and transfer its contents directly.

Here's the scenario:
1. Begin recording a concert on the R1.
2. Record until CF card #1 fills up.
3. Swap card #1 for card #2 & keep recording.
4. Plug card #1 into an image tank.
5. Dump card #1 contents and erase the card.
6. In the meantime, continue recording until card #2 fills up.
7. Swap out card #2 for the erased card #1 & keep recording.
8. Repeat from step #2.

As I read the R1 documentation, the files on the CF card are not standard
files and will be useless if dumped to an image tank from the *card itself*
(not from the R1). Either that, or the manual is badly written.
