Default USB drive

Hi guys I was wondering if there is a way to put movies onto a USB flash drive, preferable 16GB ones, and then plug it into my PS3 so I can watch the movies on my big screen TV. I have .MKV videos on my PC that are like 4-5GB. Also there are 16GB USB flash drives ranging from $20-$100. Which one should I get? Thanx!!!!!!!!!!!!

This would work great,but you would need to convert the videos over to a format the PS3 can read,i use http://www.redkawa.com/videoconverters/ps3video9/.

As for Flashdrive,I Recomend any toshiba or kingston flashdrives.

OK so how long do you guys think it will take to save a 4GB movie to the USB flash drive?

depends on your computer's specs as that will be converting the video files over ,
and i reccomend the ocz rally flash drives cos they have dual channel memory and so faster access which is what you want here
