No, I just use a 2GB SD card. I can fit 2 or 3 full-length movies and
several 30 minute TV shows on a card if I transcode and reduce the
bitrate and resolution. That's more than enough for me, and I could
always take along 2 or 3 more SD cards if I wanted more. I simply load
up a card before I take a trip.

Basically I treat the device as a glorified iPod without the massive
storage. I have an expansion board but I haven't even had a chance to
play with it since I got it about 6 months ago.
