I’m sure you’ve been warned plenty of times that you should eject your USB drive or memory card before removing it from your computer. But admit it, do you actually do it? In this video, Linus Sebastian of Techquickie discusses if you should really safely remove your drives, and when it can be absolutely necessary to do it.
For the Canon shooter who has everything, this could be the perfect little stocking filler this year. Assuming you love them enough to spend $80 on them. This tiny replica of the Canon IV SB rangefinder camera is actually a new Canon-exclusive USB flash drive. It measures 2.8×1.4×1.4″ and contains a mere 8GB of storage.
Most of the time I deliver finished photos and videos to my clients via digital download. It’s quick, easy and saves me time and money by avoiding the hassle of uploading files to a physical storage device and sending it in the mail.
However, it is occasionally necessary to copy photography and videos to a USB flash drive for delivery to a client (some clients don’t have reliable high speed internet, some want a physical product, some don’t have a reliable PC and some are just not tech savvy enough to figure out how to download a large number of files from a link).
One issue that I have started to run into – especially with longer or 4K video – is transferring files larger than 4 GB to a USB flash drive.
Fortunately, the solution is relatively easy – here is how to copy files larger than 4 GB to a USB flash drive, memory card or other FAT32 storage device.
