It was labeled SanDisk Cruzer Micro USB 2.0 Flash Drive 4GB. Only in the tiny print relating to use with Windows was there any mention of U3, and I figured it was one of those occult PC things. Most drives of any size come configured for Windows, so I am accustomed to ignoring these things.

How do I find a “bare USB stick” — or how do I identify it, anyway? What is a good price for a 4-gig thumb drive? I paid $29. (If it should have cost $15, I will be peeved, but otherwise think I will either just dump the files, or wait for Pete to come and ask him to uninstall them from his PC, assuming he is willing.)
