You can batch load & save the contents of the ESX to the card pretty easily, go:
Global mode then shift+16
Next scroll right with the jog wheel to select the save all/load all option (or similar, I'm away from my ESX). If you save a new file, it'll write to the card effectively as a master of the last save state in the ESX. Meaning if you do this routinely you'll never lose anything.
You'll find that explained in depth on page 85 of the manual found here
The save/load can be done in less than 5 minutes, its really easy.
It does help to have a card reader though, they're pretty cheap too. Picked mine up for about $15, it was well worth it.
Edit: Got so caught up answering Adamitron I forgot to say I'm up for the contest. Gotta find the dodgiest vocal clips in that set, downloading it from Korg now...
