Possible? (attaching memory to a presumably usb data mass storage controller, with various passive components...) its definitely possible. For the layman, and most experts, it would be a feat. The components are tiny, and its all surface mount soldering :S (in modern fobs) The parts are all readily available (flash memory, usb controllers, ports, and circuit boards) - getting a working design would be tough.

I have been searching for this some time now, and all i've been getting are answers like this one. I wish people would be more straight and forward with things. Where can I find a website that says step by step instructions on how to build a flash drive from scratch. not how hard it is, just want to know and exact link to the page. Thx! =P

Yes, however the cost of first designing to board, then printing the board, testing, buying components, then re printing the board and getting it to a working state would be more than ready made one.

Possible? Yes Plausible? No (Unless your a finely controlled machine)
