What can I store on this flash drive?
This flash drive comes with 8GB of storage, giving you enough room for your documents and pictures. This gives you enough space for a combination of 450 images at 10 megapixels, 20 minutes of 1080p video and 500 MP3 songs – then you’ll still have room for 2GB 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bit fiddley! I have an HP Pavilion and the USB 2.0 port is very close to the power inlet. The design of the Flash Drive with the sliding cover makes it quite hard to insert as the cover stands proud. My previous drive with a removable lid is much easier. Otherwise, I'd say the new one appears to work fine.

Asked by: Eric
Unfortunately I could not guarantee compatibility as Microsoft do not support Windows 98SE anymore we do not have the available information to ensure compatibility.
