Anyone else use USB flash memory drives? I find them incredibly useful because one, you don’t need anything but a USB port to use them, and two, they hold FAR more than a floppy disk. Because I hop back and forth between computers, I need something with all my important stuff on it that I can take with me easily and use on most computers - the USB flash memory drive fills that need completely. I own a 128mb Sony Memory Stick and find it exceedingly useful.
So I ask again… anyone else use these (IMO) wonderful little data storage devices?
For those of you who don’t know, a USB flash memory drive is a tiny device you put into your computer’s USB port and can store data on it. They hold tons more than floppy disks and require nothing but a USB port to use. You can find one at pretty much any electronics store.
Yeah, they really are great. Pop one in and store a boatload of data. Cart a couple of .exe’s to your other computer. Their primrary application is in business, but they’re very useful to individuals as well. I use mine to cart around (and backup) my various stories, images, and important stuff. That way I can get my stuff everywhere, instead of having to download it from another computer.
GAAAHHH!! KILL THE ACER!!!
yeah, I’ve got a flash drive. It’s only 128, but still useful. I used it to transfer tons of music from computer to computer (I got a new one, and the burner didn’t work with the old compy)
although the gig ones are kinda a rip off. They cost a crapload…
i have a lexar really small memory flash drive. i dont really use it that often except for .exe’s or .html’s. actually, there really usefull if you have CodeBreaker (by Pelican). you can easily transfer game saves and codes to your PS2’s USB port.
I have one I use it to carry roms.
good thing got one before my computer got fried.
I had alot of stuff on Harvest Moon Freinds of Mineral Town.
I had just put it on my flash drive a cople of days before my computer got fried
thats pretty lucky. now that i think about it, i should probably back up my important files or put them on the USB. you never know what might happen. but im not really a paranoid/overlycautions person. how much space is yours? i should get a new one.
caught with limewire? not good. i stopped using morpheous after it was announced that it was illegal.
yeah, i think you can transfer some emulator games by flash drive to a school compuer. lol. i think you could even PLAY a ZSNES rom off of the flash drive. that would be great. im going to try that. whats the unreal tournament?
