Difference between flash drive and jump drive
What exactly is the main difference between say like a 512 MB or 1 Gig flash drive and a "jump" drive? ThanksAcer Aspire, M1100 Windows Vista Home Premium

They are the same type of device, just a different name.
ome manufacturers differentiate their products by using unnecessarily elaborate housings. An example is some of Lexar's Jump Drives which are often bulky and difficult to connect to the USB port. Because the USB port connectors on a computer housing are often closely spaced, plugging a flash drive into a USB port may block an adjacent port. Such devices may only carry the USB logo if sold with a separate extension cable (See also USB connectors)

I work in the Tech Department at Staples and I've heard all kinds of names for these, including thumb drive and memory stick. I even had a lady ask me once if we carried neck-drives?
