A "flash stick" is another word for a USB flash drive. The term "flash" is used because it consists of flash memory data storage. Flash memory is is a non-volatile computer storage (computer memory that can retain the stored information even when not powered) that can be electrically erased and reprogrammed.

Flash memory works by storing information on a flash drive. This can be done by connecting the flash drive to your computer or laptop, and then transferring the information over to the drive.

A USB flash memory drive is a removable hardware device

They are called this because the memory inside it is known as Flash Memory or a Flash Chip. Why is flash memory called this? Because it is so fast - as in flash of light.

Dragging it to the flash memory usually means copying it to a memory which is slower and can be portable.The desktop memory however is faster than flash memory but sadly not portable.

USB is not a flash drive. A flash drive is so called because it uses flash memory that retains data with no power.

a flash drive or pen drive, or possibly a USB key

In a sense, no! The SanDisk Corporation, is an American multinational corporation that designs and manufactures flash memory card products. San Disk is a name brand for that Product.The Flash Drive is also known as:Memory StickFlash DriveFlash StickThumb DriveUsb StickUsb DriveJump DrivePen Drive

Technically speaking there is no set limit, as technology grows - so will the size of a USB Flash drive. ------------ To my knowledge the most memory you can have on a USB flash drive is 256 GB.

The flash drive or stick has reached its capacity. Depends what you are storing and how big your flash drive is.

Main memory (commonly called RAM) is high speed, "dynamic" memory, used by the processor to run applications. Dynamic memory does not retain information after the computer is turned off, but it stores applications' program data while the computer is still running.Flash memory tends to be a bit slower than RAM, and can be used in much the same manner as a physical disk drive, not losing its data when it loses its power supply. Flash memory can be used in digital cameras, removable flash drives, and now with the advent of SSD's (Solid State Drive), as a replacement to HDD's (Hard Disk Drive) in computers.

A Flash drive is a small memory storage device that you plug into your computer. It is not something that can be downloaded.

A flash memory card is a card that holds digital data. An example of a flash memory card would be an SD Card, Micro SD, Memory Stick Pro Duo, Flash Drive (Thumb Drive, USB key). All Ipod models except the ipod classic use flash memory. Flash memory has no moving parts, but, hardrives do. Those are classified under, non-flash memory. Flash memory cards have different memory capacities. The higher the capacity, the more expensive it will be. But, the higher capacity, the more stuff can be put on it. Hope this helps

You can write to a flash drive and read data from the flash drive. It acts the same as a miniature hard drive, just like the one on your computer. It uses flash memory, hence the name flash drive.

You can purchase a USB flash drive from many sites on the internet. Or you can go to any local retailer that offers a wide variety of memory storage that can meet your needs in a flash drive.

It uses a type of semiconductor memory called Flash memory. It is a special type of memory that does not require refreshing the way RAM memory in the computer does. Once written to, the data remains even when there is no power to the drive.

intel. Flash memory was developed by Toshiba and then intel developed a flash drive from Toshiba's invention.

AnswerFlash Memmory is a special type of EEPROM (Eletrically Eraseable Programmable Read Only Memory)The difference between flash memory and EEPROM is that flash memory is block eraseable and EEPROM is byte-erasable.

A USB flash drive, also variously known as a USB drive, USB stick, thumb drive, pen drive, flash-disk, or USB memory, [a] is a data storage device that includes flash memory with an integrated USB interface. USB flashdrives are typically removable and rewritable, and physically much smaller than an optical disc.

The smallest USB flash drive that is easily found nowadays is a 2gb. It is possible to find smaller, but difficult. The largest memory on the normal market is a 1TB flash drive.

There are flash drives of different memory capacities, ranging from 512Mb to 16Gb available in the market. What you will prefer will depend on how much you want to spend on a flash drive. If your use is only related to storing text documents and other simple files without a lot of graphics then a low memory flash drive would be sufficient. If you want to store a lot of music or videos then you would have to choose a flash drive with more memory capacity.
