My beloved Seagate 6GB pocket hard drive is dying. What should I replace it with? Answered
I've had this pocket-sized external hard drive for almost five years. It's taken a beating, and I'm bumping up against the size limit. I'm looking to replace it and hoping for some insight from the Instructables community. Here's some bullet points:
-I use this mostly for file storage and portable apps right now, but replacing it with something that will play MP3s would be a plus. Video is not necessary.
-Minimum storage size would be 8GB, but if I'm playing music, it would need to be larger. Ideally upwards of 40GB.
-Portability is essential. The current drive, when the cord is rolled up, is just shy of 3" in diameter. I'd like something that's equally pocketable. This also means the USB cord or connector must be integrated. As far as I'm concerned, it's not portable if I have to carry a cable with me.
-That said, I don't want it too small or I'm afraid I'd lose it. :-)
-Price point is below $100.
