I just threw away a perfectly good 128mb usb thumb drive because, well, there's nothing you can do with 128mb.

I recently was thinking the same thing about a 1GB drive.

And yet, I wrote my PhD dissertation on a computer with a 60MB hard drive and had room to spare. Of course, that computer didn't have little things like a color monitor or a mouse.

They're handy if you bounce around from different computers -- I've used a small thumb drive for carrying around audiobooks.

I am Just looking to buy 20 or 30 really small and REALLY cheap USB drives.

 I cannot find any.

 I just want to put 30 images on them, and post them out to customers, so ideally less than 1 each... After all, I might want 500 eventually.

Smallest I can find is 1 gb at about 3+  Way bigger than I need. Does anyone have any ideas where I might find 128MB ones? I would have thought they would also be good as security keys, but not for sale on Amazon, play, 7dayshop, ebuyer, ebay.

I am stumped.

Cheap!

The 128MB drives I found, bought in bulk, are 80GBP for 100x128MB = 12.8 GB = 6250 GBP per terabyte. If I buy the terabyte drives, I get 7x the storage for that price.

I couldn't spend the money on one, flash drives seem to have too short a lifespan.
