I would suggest you buying an extra Hard Disk, you get a lot more storage than a Flash drive and it's cheaper than a brand new computer. The only difference is that you can't carry it if it's an internal one.Originally Posted by AniManga Hound
Flash drive are the replacement to floppy drive and CD-Rom for quick transfers from a computer to another using USB, some of their advantage are that they don't have physical moving pieces and are very small. Also compatible with Mac and PC.
Make sure if you ever want to buy one that it's USB 2.0 compatible, I think most of them are...but just make sure.
The way they work is exacly the same way a floppy disk work...You insert it in the USB slot and then you can drag/drop, copy/paste and delete files and folders from them.
