I just say USB...

but I call it pen drive for few reasons -

1) it being as portable as a pen
2) it is a portable drive  
3) pen + drive = pen drive

Yes, I have heard it been called with many different ways - flash drive, USB disk, thumb drive, portable drive, portable disk, pen drive, plug-in disk and what not?!

Why no standard name for this widely used stuff???!!!




I call it a stick drive.

Yes, and a USB connects to a computer ergo it's known as a Universal Serial Bus. Anything that basically connects a cable/connecter etc. to a computer/electronic device is known as a USB. A flash drive is classified under the 'Mass Storage Class' (MSC) description.

Technically.. calling that as USB is wrong ; should be replaced with MSC?

flash drive

It uses flash memory so that's why it's a flash drive. It's not a pen, it's just barely a stick.
I say USB drive or Flash drive

That's more acceptable... flash drive it is...
I assume portable drive and USB drive could be used as well.

But USB Drive could also mean external hard drives right?

Technically an external HDD is a USB drive. Though technically an external SSD is a Flash Drive too but eh I just say flash drive since it makes the most technical sense.

And that's the best kind of sense!
I call it a memory stick.
I've always called it a flash drive. The only other thing I've heard in my area is a USB but that doesn't make very much sense to me.

But you know. Soda, pop, coke, soft drink.

I does not simply call it USB... it takes dedication... like yours... I have dedicated my life into calling it pendrive since knowing about its existence..

American's are silly. They don't employ the metric system, rather stupid stuff like 'feet', 'galleons' and 'inches'.

Metric system 4 lyfe.
I call them junk drives.

because I put lots of junk on them and half of mine are corrupted.

My only problem with the metric system is that Meters are too big and centimeters are to small.  Where's the unit in between??
