    Just about any flash drive should work. This thread has some good info about flash drives for use with a mac and windows computer.

    Lacie makes great products! All my external drives are from them.

    I also recommend any flash drive from Sandisk. I have two cruzers and they have held up for years now, no problems what so ever. The kind I have are metal, so they can withstand being throw on a keychain and actually have some weight to them (which I like)

    Here is a link to the model I have which is the one I recommend for you (since it works just fine for PC and Mac - although all flash drives will be cross compatible, unless you go out of your way to format them otherwise - NTFS or Mac OS Extended are not cross compatible)

    I vote for the SanDisk Cruzer. As long as the flash drive is formatted correctly, does it matter what you use between Mac and PC?
