    Just bought two of these, one for me, and one for my wife. File transfers to the drives are about 100 times faster than to a floppy. Installation was a snap.. just plug it in. Though on one machine the driver disk was needed.. not too sure about that.

    Below is a link to the actual drive I bought:

    128MB USB 1.0-2.0 Buffalo Clip Drive:

    It works well and is very tiny. I have found larger drives, but at the store I went to they had a 32, 64, and 128MB drive.. Mine is purple with a yellow LED showing that it is on. It comes with an extension cable and a end cap, driver disk and manual.

    I got both for around 30 dollars each. I doubt I will ever use my floppy drive again.

    I have been using one for several months. I carry it with me. It is no bigger than a small pocket knife and contains all of the programs that I use to test and fix a sick machine. Here is another source -

    here's mine yeah these are great. and man is the transfer fast. BB does your other rig have xp sp1 or is win98 I think that would be the only reason for you to use the driver.

    actually it is my longhorn rig.. but it makes sense now, longhorn is alpha crap

    Phish do you know if that cruzerlock app works with other brands of micro/pen/clip drives?

    Download the CruzerLock Security Application Here

    UPDATE: IT doesn't work with other brands of USB pen/clip/micro drives :P
