Adding USB storage to Bluetooth device? Answered

Hey diyers, I am looking for info. I recently picked up a mini Bluetooth keyboard/mouse combo. I got it for retro gaming. I was wondering if it were possible to add USB storage inside the keyboard and transmit the data via Bluetooth. Thinking I could use it to store save files so I have them no matter what PC I play on

Thanks guys. I didn't figure it would hut it seemed cool enough to dig a little. I guess my best option would be to pack a flash drive with me. Will probably wind up making a keyring of sorts for the data.

Or maybe combine a flash drive with the Bluetooth dongle

Again: Please check the BT specifications, especially in regards to what your dongle is capable of.
If there would be at least anyuse to it then someone in China would have put one on ebay already ;)

You can't do all this at once over BT.
And adding a reader won't work anyways due to the missing hardware support.
Apart from that I doubt your retro system supports saving over BT.
If you need storage use a USB hub and a USB stick ;)
