    I am looking for a good flash memory drive. I am considering 256 to 512MB. Any recommendations? Thanks!

    I just bought a USB flash memory card reader/writer from Crucial.com. It can handle 6 different types of flash media cards, including CompactFlash, SmartMedia and MemoryStick.

    Why get a dedicated drive that limits the size when you can use a reader/writer with any card st any size?

    I know that the reader/writer itself is bigger than a flash drive, but it's not so big that it isn't portable.

    i use the cruzer by scandisk.

    a nice feature is it's upgradeability (sp?). to increase the capacity, you just put in a larger flash-card.

    it's pretty much plug-n-play. on an older win98 system, i had to install some drivers, but it was no big deal.

    one thing you may want to consider is the next generation. i read somewhere they're going to start incorporating security features. i don't remember the details though....sorry.
