I would be interested to hear users comments as regards reliability.
I expect that USB storage is much more reliable than floppies.
How does it compare to reading and writing to CD-R and CD-RW?
Is reading/writing speed comparable or better than CD? I accept that this question depends on the relevant speed of the CD drive and the relevant speed of the USB storage. So lets just say on an ‘average speed’ new XP pc how do you think an ‘average USB storage device’ would compare to an ‘average’ CD-R/RW drive?
Most important of all though – has anyone had any reliability problems retrieving data stored on USB storage?
