RE: USB Drives with Etrax 100LX?




I don't know I can't seem to find pricing information or a supplier for
flash memory.  How does the price compare when you get up to 128MB range?
Are the USB drives flash memory based?  If so then I guess the point is
moot.

If anybody can provide me with the type of flash memory to buy for the
Etrax, a supplier I can buy it from and some general ball park figures on
the cost of a 16MB chip and a 32MB chip, I would really appreciate it.

Wouldn't it be cheaper to just use 16 or 32MB of ordinary flash memory?
