Step 2: Modding the Lego Brick

Now get out your dremel or drill and drill out all the insides of your Lego brick, leaving only a "trough" which your drive will go.

Step 3: Sanding Down

After your Legos insides are out you're going to sand it down to the size of two flat Legos, so stack two flat Legos on top of each other and trace a line onto the brick where your gonna shave off, look at the pictures for more help. I used a dremel to sand the brick down, on my first one a used a file but that took almost an hour. Amost Done!

Step 4: Making the Drive Fit

My drive didnt fit in the Lego brick so I had to widen the sides, so I took a drill to the sides and made it a little wider (You are most likely going to have to do this). Then, cut out a slot for the drives metal thingy.

Love these things!! I've made a few myself over the years, the current edition is a 64Gb one, with a keyring on the one end. I use a valet key ring so that it can be detached and not cause strain on the USB port of the device I plug it into. Also, for stability, I jump past the hot glue and use JB Weld epoxy resin inside. You have to wait a bit longer for the stuff to set prior to drilling the keyring hole, but I've had one now for about 4 years (1Gb model) and it still works great.

will it matter to the flash drive if its covered in hot glue?
yes
Then is there any way to keep it from flopping around in the lego brick?
Actually hot glue won't effect it. Hot glue doesn't conduct and thats how the factorys secure it to the casing anyway.

I would drill a small hole in the top so you could turn it into a key chain.
