I need an old USB 1 flash drive to transfer files from my main machine to my Jornada 820. I believe they can be got, but they're rather hard to find these days. Does anyone know where I can get one or two?

All USB drives are backwards compatible so any will work.

You can use an USB 2.0 in an 1.1, only the speed is painfully slow.

Doesn't work, I've tried it. I need a very early drive, like 2000 or so.

It does normally work, I used a 2 GB ReadyBoost key in an old 1998 laptop recently - perhaps the USB port on a PDA is different, or do you have to install USB mass storage drivers on it like you do on a PC running anything older than 2000/Me?

I believe the 820's USB port is for mice and keyboards primarily, so in order to get a mass storage device to work, you'd need to get ahold of the proper driver first. I think it's called USBMSC.SYS, maybe this helps.

I pisses me off when using USB 1.1 to transfer data, it takes longer to move 1GB of data than to enjoy a cup of coffee. (not that I drink coffee)

Just install the appropriate drivers for your USB drive and you're good to go. Windows 98 and earlier, and also, if I remember correctly, Windows 2000, don't support USB drives without installing the appropriate drivers first.

Windows 2000 and ME have support for mass storage built in, 98 dosen't.

He is talking of Windows CE, which is a different story.

Can't you just get a Wifi/LAN PCMCIA card and network into it so you can transfer at decent speeds?
