I'm wondering what the best way to store digital photos would be. A basic google search introduced me to the concept of storing photos on cds... Personally, I am not a fan of cds as they scratch and take up space, and unless that is the only way I would like to find a more practical solution. I was thinking about a flash drive?? I've never used one of these before (though I've been told I should for storing my English class papers haha), but it seems like a convenient way to store data. So, can photos be stored on these things? Movies and papers, too? Or are there certain types you have to get in order to store certain things? The only things I am wanting to store are my digital photos and the papers I write for school. Maybe short movies if I ever get a camcorder. I'm not opposed to having several of these since they seem to be relativly inexpensive. It seems safer that way than to keep everything on one expensive external drive (but I dont really know anything about these either, so by all means, educate me!) I'm open to any other recommendations or suggestions. Let me know what brand/model you use if you recommend something. Thanks!
