What can I store on this flash drive?
This flash drive comes with 16GB of storage, giving you enough room for your documents and pictures. This gives you enough space for a combination of 900 images at 10 megapixels, 40 minutes of 1080p video and 1000 MP3 songs – then you’ll still have room for 4GB of office files such as text documents and spreadsheets.

What can I do with a USB flash drive?
Flash drives are commonly used for storing documents to transfer between PCs. You can also plug them into compatible head units in cars, so you can play your favourite music without being limited to the small memory capacity of CDs. You can even use them to play your favourite movies on a compatible television. This gives you a durable memory stick which can perform a variety of tasks.

NB: Brand and image may differ from product supplied.

What's the best memory stick that is compatible with iPads please. Would I be able to get the same product for around the same price from whsmiths    Thank you

Asked by: Louise
The only unrestricted extra storage drives available for Apple devices would be the iFlash series such as the one below. This would work as general expanded storage but will encrypt the data so that only that iPad can read it. Other input connection adapters for SD cards and camera connections are limited to accessing the camera roll and cannot be used as general storage. We cannot comment on other retailers stock or pricing.
