USB Device- A Little Briefcase

Jun 17, 2008
The process of making a bootable USB is not as easy as it looks to be. This is much tougher than creating a bootable disc or floppy. The USB in many respects is considered to be a better alternative to the floppy drive. In certain aspects these are considered to be better than even the CD or the DVD discs.

The reasons for regarding the Universal Serial Bus Device better than these are many. One major difference is that these are more portable in nature. Moreover, the memory capacity and the protection of the data stored in them can never be compared with that of the other storing devices.

Let us now have a look at the functions and the facilities provided by these drives.

These devices can be connected to the CPU very easily and as soon as the drive is connected, the user is informed about it by a notice or by an indication of the connection of a new drive. In most computers, you have the option of inserting the device into a Universal Serial Bus port either in the back or in the front of the computer. For accessing a file stored in the drive or for sending a file into it, the user just has to copy the file from the device and paste in the computer and vice-versa.

The amount of data that can be stored in the USB device, or Flash drive, is really very huge and that depends on the capacity of the drive. The recent devices that are available in the market are credited with more capacity than the previous ones and therefore, are better than the earlier models. Easy to install and easy to erase, these drives have caught the fancy of users all round the world.

In contrast to the various merits of the device, the demerits are very few or even negligible.

Moreover, the fear of the data getting destroyed or corrupted is almost negligible in USB devices. The CD or DVD discs may get scratched and damaged very easily and therefore important data can never be stored in the discs safely. But it can be safely stored in the USB devices.

The quality of these devices also depends upon the company that has manufactured it. Some of the devices are not as good as those of the top brands. The prices for these may be a bit high, but the effort should always be to go for the costly one. The main reason for this is that the costly pieces will carry a warranty with them. Thus anyone who buys the flash drives of the reputed brands can at least have the freedom of handling and carrying it the way he wants to.

Thus we can see that a small gadget like the USB device has made the task of carrying the files from one place to another much easier than before.
