Will this USB flash wristband from Imation work with eCS? http://www.imation.com

It would be cool if it had the eCS logo, name and url (if it works with eCS).

I've got one, it works. Some reason doesn't quite look like the one in your pictures.

It's kind of not that well designed. The band is formed rounded a bit, so if you have a laptop on the desk, it doesn't sit well once you shove it in the USB port. Also, the actual drive itself is really small. I know because it actually just slides right out of the band. It's about 2-3 cm long with a little blue LED on one end.
(It won't fall out in normal use, but probably wouldn't survive, say, cliff jumping).

How much did you pay for yours? I will have to look for one. I will check it out. Thanks for the information.

I think mine is 256MB, and it was...if I recall, $14 or $19 from Target. It was on sale and being so inexpensive, I just bought it (I have no other USB other than a freebie 32MB I got many years ago).

I bought one from Target for $25 (not on sale ). It is blue in color. It was able to record onto it but I had to format it in FAT). It fits (barely) on my wrist. I will try to see if I can transfer the files to a non-eCS pc.

7. Files Not Seen?
Reply to this topic with quote Modify your message
I used the IFW with my eCS Thinkpad. I copied files to it after formating it using FAT. The files transfered to it. I tried viewing the files on a WinXP Gateway. It did not see the files. I copied files onto it using the WinXP Gateway. My eCS Thinkpad did not see the files. Is this due to FAT or due to the size of the IFW (which is 256 megabyte - the only size they had at Target)?

Sure it's not long filename issues or something like that?
I've popped mine into my work laptop (WinXP) and no problems. Even passed it around to my colleagues, they all can see the files, some of which I transferred under OS/2, which I can also see WinXP files that I plopped over.

It could be long file names. I will try to shorten the file names.

I have used a DEll USB thumb drive that has 64 meg of mem. It shortened the file names but it could be seen on my eCS Thinkpad.
