Hi,

I'm pretty new to all this, have just bought a Sandisk Cruzer Crossfire 2gb flash drive for a decent price, but didn't realize it is for XBOX! I am not a gamer and don't have an XBOX. Can I use it just for storing and transferring photos? And does anyone know if it will be compatible with public computers (will it be recognized - not sure if I will have to download driver)). I need it to take photos from home to college for photography course. I emailed company I bought from, they didn't know and I phoned Sandisk... believe it or not they couldn't tell me either!! May have to send it back if I can't find out!

Any help appreciated...

You can still use the crossfire as a standard USB flash drive in your computer.The only caution i have ion any flash drive is they tend to get corrupted files on them after a couple of years so i would not use them for long term storage.

Oh great, thanks guys. Does anyone know if it will be useable on public computers (at a College) - apparently some are not - something to do with drivers??

that depends mostly on the computer not the drive....most of the time the reason they don't work on shared computers is due to user restrictions put in place by the system administrators of the computer....you'd just have to try it and see
