Is it possible to connect multiple usb thumb drives to be one drive? Answered

If I had like 10 thumb drives could I connect them all as one drive somehow? I know you can create a usb hub and connect many that way, but when you connect the hub to a pc it sees many drives and not one.


i was thinking about this... Could you just solder the 4 usb pins together at the end, maybe? Probably not, but it's a thought.

That would work, but It would create separate drives. (F:\, G:\, H:\, etc.) He wants just one drive.

nope, I don't know exactly how it works, but a little chip reads all the data and sends meaning ful info to the computer.

. OK. I thought the chip just did some signal conditioning and current limiting. Sorry about that.

yep but i dont think its good idea for portable thing maybe you could add there a script (in bash and windows editions) that mounts them in a convenient tree or something and run it manually

. JBOD? Never seen it used with thumb drives, but it might work.

I haven't done it before, but you should be able to use the same partitioning process that turns one hard drive into more to make two into one on a flash drive.

Look up partitioning, see if you can get it to work on your flash drives, and if you do, try to put the flash drives together.
