Super-small flash drive available

Was strolling through my local Electronics store and ran across this nifty little flash drive. This is a Patriot "Autobahn" flash drive that is super small. I got the 32GB version. They are marketing it for auto use. It's not super-fast but it doesn't need to be for audio use. Should be small enough to plug into the BMW USB port without sticking up or needing an extension cable. It's just barely bigger than the USB port. If you want a flash drive with a small form factor, this definitely qualifies!

Have you tried it yet for music through your usb port? I have read that some don't work well. I am using a Patriot 32 gb that works well, think it is called the 'supersonic x-press'. Set up my file directory as artist\album\song, works well with my car and using the 'dir' menu on the radio. Will have to look into the autobahn, thanks.

I went this with flash drive as its EXTREMELY small, and works exceptionally well in our usb port.

I still have a 20MB external HDD somewhere in my house from back in the day. Its size is about 3 laptops stacked one on top of each other. It is about 25 years old. It will barely store 2 songs at 320kbps today.

Things really change.
