Chapter 7. Hardware Annoyances > CONNECT YOUR FLASH MEMORY DRIVE WITH A USB CAB...

CONNECT YOUR FLASH MEMORY DRIVE WITH A USB CABLE

The Annoyance:

I bought one of those cute little portable flash memory drives. It only holds 16 MB, but it was dirt cheap and a handy alternative to a floppy. What's not handy is crawling under the desk to stick it into the USB port on the back of my PC.

The Fix:

I'm guessing your keychain-size flash memory drive was inexpensive; many of the larger-capacity drives come with a USB cable. You can pick up a six-foot male-to-female extension cable for under $5 at a local computer store or online.
