Default Re: 20Gb USB Stick

I too have never seen 20gb size but on searching I found a thing not a USB stick but a 20 GB portable digital storage device:

Amazon.com: SmartDisk FCD20 FotoChute 20 GB Portable Digital Storage Device: Electronics


It has a hard drive of 20GB so it may be possible..

Ahhhh you know what i'm wondering guys.

My brother isn't that old, only 28 (I think) but i'm wondering if he is having a bit of a senior moment and actually bought a 2.0Gb USB stick? and it's showing up as 1.8 Gb or 1800Mb free?

Thinking about it 10 for a 20Gb (or 16Gb) USB Stick in a SHOP would be very cheap.
Shops In the UK tend to live in the dark ages and I still genuinely see 4Gb sticks for 15.

I might pop round there tonight to see, or he will find out when he tries to backup 16Gb worth of stuff.

I think I understand the question, if it's got eSata then isn't it more of an external hard drive.

But if it's USB and it's "a stick" then it's a USB stick.

Thought USB sticks and SSD drives are almost the exact same thing :?

Anyways, I just looked at that again USB 2.0????????
REALLY??
