The price isn’t the only factor. As a rule, I find that copying data to an usb drive takes so much longer than copying to an external hd.

LOL you're not the only one Sylvia.  I could not justify, or even conveniently afford such a drive, nor would I bother.

Hi Carlos, I could never justify spending that kind of money on a drive. Even the 128 gb drives made by Kingston are a bit too pricy.

Are you sure it is a flash drive and not a portable external drive?  1 TB flash drives are not very common and the one I see most often being referenced is a Kingston DataTraveler.

It seems to have been released back in 2013, but even it's current price is rather impressive at $744.

Hi,

I can’t remember how much I paid for my 1tera bite flash.  I bought it about three or four years ago.  I know it wasn’t to exspensive though.  I bought it when it was on sale.  I think the flash drives might be a little cheaper now.  If you look around, you could probably get a good deal on one.   

 

Best,

Janet

Hi Melissa,

If you are referring to the NLS digital player from your library for the blind, you can use a larger flash drive than what you are currently using.  I use flash drives on the NLS player when reading books or watching a movie.  My flash drives are 1tera bite.   

 

Best,

Janet

If you have the NLS digital player from your library for the blind.  You might want to go online to http://www.aph.org and get one of the NLS cartridge.  The one from aph is 8gb or 16gb I cannot remember which.  However, you could download books on to that.  As you can fit a lot of books on that.  This is just a suggestion.

 

Thank you for your time regarding this matter.
