Digital cameras, MP3 players, and PDAs have made transferring and storing your files more confusing than ever. Here's how to pick the best bucket for your bytes.
USB FLASH MEMORY
Great For: People with two or more unnetworked computers, or those who ferry files from home to work.
Think Twice If: Your files come from digital devices that require a specific type of memory card.
What to Buy: Sony Microvault ($49 for 16MB to $299 for 128MB), IBM Memory Key ($89 for 32MB), Agat Q ($69 for 16MB to $199 for 64MB).
PERSONAL HARD DRIVES
Great For: Data hogs (think 40GB), such as those who want to carry around their collection of MP3s.
