GUEST,DWR Tech: Flash drives: best ones for music, video (14) RE: Tech: Flash drives: best ones for music, video 15 Feb 10


A couple of other things.

If you decide on the SanDisk, DO NOT keep the U3 software! First thing to do when you get it is to remove the U3 crap. You don't need it, and likely would never use it. I think they have instructions now on how to get rid of it, too many customer complaints.

The other thing is to put in a folder for portable apps. I have portable Foxfire, portable VLC and portable Audacity. This means you can plug your jump drive into somebody else's computer, and PRESTO, it becomes yours with your bookmarks, etc. You may need other apps, so just google portable apps to see what is available.

When I don't want to take my laptop to school, that's what I do with a school machine. It effectively becomes "my" machine, not someone else's idea of what it should be. Take out the jump drive when you're finished and you're on your way. Oh, and you'll need a folder for all your saved files.
