    Flash Card vs Memory Stick

    Locked

    by ozi eagle ·

    Hi All,

    I’ve got a query regarding the technology in USB memory sticks.
    A recent TR article described tests on flash cards which found them extremely robust mechanically.

    My question is whether USB memory sticks use the same technology as flash cards.
    I am considering using flash cards as backup media
    but if memory sticks use the same technology they would be a simpler implementation.

    An comments welcome.
    TIA

    Herb

      Yes thay all use some type of “flash memory”
      Only the interface is defrent. If you are backing up a small amount of data and you can keep it in a fire safe.
      Shop around you can get a 4GB USB drive for what some sell a 512.
