I use TruCrypt on my flash drives and it works well. It is a free encryption program for Windows, Macs and Linux. You can find a tutorial and link for the download HERE

+1 billion.

It's more secure becuase its more open - they use a standard that nobody has been able to break yet simply by its key complexity and inability to be brute forced, and no known workarounds.
+2 billion

We often manage personal client information on our workstations and external drives and truecrypt has been great... we have been using it for years now... we have also had workmates lose their usb drives - so v.handy. Truecrypt also offers hidden volumes which can add an extra level to your security too.
