    yes, they work fine on macs.

    I have the 128mb sandisk that is on the page you linked.

    It mounts perfectly when I plug it in. It also works on a linux machine that I have.

    It's called a U[niversal]SB drive for a reason. It'll work fine.

    If you format it as FAT32 you can read/write to it on Mac, Windows, and Linux. On any modern OS you won't even need drivers--I've had mine work in OS 9.1, X, XP, 2000, Mandrake, Knoppix, and SUSE with no configuration.
