I've looked over those 'Pen Drives' and rejected them.
I have two digital cameras which use Smart Media cards. As I buy newer, bigger, cards for my camera (currently have 256 MB for both) I wonder what to do with the old 128 MB cards.
Solved the problem by buying a couple of Smart Media Card Readers for $30 US. They plug into a USB port and are configured as Removable Media Drives. They are also hot-swappable as well. Haven't had a data-glitch on any of the cards in over two years (to date).
I am watching prices on 256MB cards come down again and am thinking of buying a few more just for data storage.
True, I can't wear the things around my neck, but they do slip rather well into a shirt pocket.
