Need a small 16 or 32 GB flash drive

13 posts in this topic

Got myself a new car and it comes with some bells and whistles. Unfortunately a large hard drive isn't one of them.

It does have USB ports though. I wanted to load up a decent amount of my music and sometimes a few films on a flash drive that would stay connected to the car constantly. The only time I would remove it is to put new stuff on there. The ports are in a console between the driver and passenger seat which also acts as storage. Because of this I need a low (small) profile usb drive. I've searched and found a few but does anyone have any recommendations bearing in mind it will be used a lot, pretty much whenever the car is running.

Thanks

I have a few of these (Pico C Gold / Nickel) since they are basically indestructible:

I also have a few of the Cruzr's as shown above, but they are really flimsy. Really cheap, but it's thin plastic that won't endure much stress.

+1 for the Pico's, great drives and to me much more durable than the Cruzrs. I think I have about 4 of them, ranging from 4GB to 32GB.

Thanks for the suggestions but they stick out a little more than I wanted but I may go for them we'll see.

Are these any good?

Also bear in mind it will be in the car overnight in winter and it can get pretty cold so I don't know if that needs to be taken into consideration. Being in the UK getting too hot isn't something I need to worry about!

Kingston is a reputable brand, so I'm sure it would be fine.

When I read the topic, I thought "How can the OP want a small 16gb or 32gb drive, he specified the size!"

Sorry... early morning. :p

But seriously, there are quite a few small USB drives, have you considered a micro SD card/reader? Might fit the bill... and means it's interchangeable quite easily.

You'll never guess what happened. My brother already ordered the Kingston one for me! But thanks for the suggestions guys.

Yeah and I should have specified physical size. Easy mistake to make really!

Haha, more pushing of these! :D

Sure your not the guy selling them? :laugh:

I wish ! I'd have made a fortune by now :D

No, I just had those links more to hand than trying to find the thread I made about them here :D
