Default SD Card or USB flash drive

Is a camera SD or SDHC card as good as a USB flash drive used as a data storage card? I have used then to transfer files from one computer to another with no problems. I just leave the card in the USB adapter and use it that way.

Default Re: SD Card or USB flash drive

SD just means Secure Digital, which basically pertains to removable Flash. A USB flash drive is basically several SD-esque chips soldered to a board with a USB interface on it.
