    Ultra small usb flash drive without 'flashy light'

    Help,

    Just looking for something similar to his...



    Dont care about speed/capacity, just need it to not have a 'flashy light' on it.

    Re: Ultra small usb flash drive without 'flashy light'

    Could use a marker or black tape to cover the LED...

    Re: Ultra small usb flash drive without 'flashy light'

    I've not seen anything that small.

    the HP one reddragon posted looks good.

    you also get ones like this http://www.verbatim-europe.co.uk/en_...19856__42.html which is 30mm long but very flat (thinner than a normal usb plug) http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/-/3242/25...l?ob=4&cpage=2
    (I have one of these http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/-/3242/25...l?ob=4&cpage=3 it's the same type of stick in a nice metal keyring housing)

    I've also got one of these http://www.play.com/Mobiles/Mobile/4...-/Product.html
    I got it for my phone and the usb adaptor is pretty tiny, you stick the micro sd card in the back, it's the size of a usb stick and 25mm long.
    Micro SD cards are not the fastest of transfer speeds though.

    Re: Ultra small usb flash drive without 'flashy light'

    I have seen small ones like this around dont know about LEDs on them though

    http://www.google.co.uk/products/cat...d=0CIABEPMCMAc

    http://www.google.co.uk/products/cat...=0CG4Q8wIwAzgK

    ultra small seems to bring up several

    If you are thinking of using it as say additional storage on a netbook, check to see if it has a SD card slot. The wife uses
    the SD for ready boost.

    It should be very easy to desolder the LED in the buffalo one you're showing if you know someone with an iron

    Re: Ultra small usb flash drive without 'flashy light'

    can be tricky because they are so small, could always just block it out. (paint/cover it)

    The other big issue is these things are not designed to come apart, you often have to break the clips of the plastic housing to get it open.

    Quite fast drives, very small, and durable.
