Can I connect this G-drive directly to my Sony A7R IV via USB-C and transfer files directly to this drive without a computer?
Asked by: Celestino
No, this drive will need to be connected to a PC. An option for a drive that you don't need a PC to use would be the Gnarbox 2.0: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1437308-REG/gnarbox_gnar512v2_2_0_ssd_512gb_external.html
