Anyone have a review for a Sony "8GB USB Micro Vault CLICK Turbo" ( USM8GLX ) Flash drive? Answered

Yup, another find me question: one "8GB USB Micro Vault CLICK Turbo" review. I'm not necessarily asking you to write a review, but if you happen to this particular flash drive, it would be very welcome. Once again, i've looked around for quite awhile, can't really find a review anywhere. Is this because it's really old, really bad, or just uncommon? I'm thinking about buying one, any tips would be good. Also, any other Flash drive suggestions around AU$100 with 8GB, a decent read/write speed, and orange would be appreciated. ( i like orange. ) Thanks in advance. Quack.

With a netbook, is RAID 0ing the internal SSD and an SD card a good idea?

I've just gotten a netbook with an 8gb SSD, and it has a built-in SD card slot. If I put an 8gb class 10 SD card into the slot, would I be able to RAID 0 them? What would happen if I RAID 0ed them and then took the SD card out while it was on? Would it erase everything or would it just shut down? Would this work? I need 16gb of internal storage, and a 16gb SSD drive is over 70% the price of the netbook.... I'm thinking either Hackintosh or Peppermint OS or Windows XP as the operating system. Any other comments?

Need pin connections and source of connectors for Sony 8GB Walkman MP3 player and Ipod

My girlfriend's Sony Walkman 8GB MP3 player is a Model NWZ-E430. It is difficult to find docking stations and accessories for Sony units in retail stores, and few options exist even online. I'd like to build a docking station with high-quality amp / speakers for her. I am an electronics and computer tech by trade, but this is my girlfriend's player. I don't own one, and have not experimented with them. I need to know the pinouts (connections out of the Walkman) to connect it to the docking station... polarity of power connections, speaker outputs, etc. I also need a source for the Sony connector to fit into the Walkman. Finally, I need to know what the pinouts are for an Ipod docking station, in case I find one that I want to buy and hack, so it will work for the Walkman. Not having an Ipod, I do not know if they are the same type of connector as the Sony, but I assume they are different.

Computer won't detect 8gb zune-brand new, 28 hours out of box-can you help?

Hey, all.Yesterday, I bought an 8 gb zune and brought it home. I tried turning it on, but all I got was a screen w/ the zune logo, so I figured I had to leave it charging. I went home, disconnected the zune as per instructions I read on the official site, downloaded the software, installed the software (after redownloading because the first one got interrupted and thus currupted), and plugged it in.The software never recognized it. I kept getting the zune logo (on the player screen), no matter what. Once, I got it to say "charging", but that's it. I left it connected with the logo screen on all night and all this morning, and this afternoon have played with it with no success. Did a hard reboot. Finally got it to turn on when disconnected and say something about connecting to the social network or something, but pressing the ok button in the center of the zune didn't work. Neither did pressing play, or back. It showed critical battery and turned itself off. Did this twice more, apparently I've completely drained the battery because it won't turn on at all now. If I connect it now, the computer dings over and over and over like it knows something is happening but can't figure it out. Apparently this is a common problem, I have googled and tried many things with no success.I've tried all my usb ports, it's brand new out of the box, so is the cord, I know all my usb ports work.It does show up under device manager, with a yellow question mark beside it.I'm about ready to return this piece of microsoft junk, before I do, I thought I'd see if anyone has a zune or knows how to fix this...Can anyone help me?

It sounds like the AMD is the winner, but I just want to be sure. I plan on running games such as Battlefield 3, Crysis 2, Saints Row 3, Medal of Honor, Need for Speed World, and about 7 or 8 other smaller games.
