Small USB drive - no LED

5
Found 19th Feb
Hey all,
Has anyone come across a small format USB drive that doesn't have a blinding LED on it during data access?
I have a Lexmar S45 which is ideal for size (for use in my car for music) but during data access a blinding blue LED starts strobing. impossible to use in the car as it looks like theres a ridiculous disco happening on my centre console.
Any suggestions are welcome - tried taping around the LED but could still see bits.
Thanks,
Dan

I see what you mean

Well depending which you want to do you can get a Sandisk Cruzer which should do the job nicely.

Alternatively you could try a few good coats of black nail polish/paint or thicker tape to supress the light emitted from the Lexar S45

Wow, it has a build-in emergency beacon.
I use the tiny USB adapter for SD Cards from Kingston Memory, excellent little USB Drives. You can buy them stand alone or sometimes bundled with there SD Cards.
