    I'm looking for a flash drive that has 4GB of memory and is easy to take the case off to mod it any suggestions

    It's not that hard to take the case off of any of them really...

    You should probably go to a store and look at some. Any of the plastic enclosures that appear to be in two pieces so you can wedge a screw driver or coin in between the halves and crack it open will be simple.

    I've taken a couple apart. Like they said, those that come in plastic casings pretty much splits apart.
    Here's what I did with the ones I took apart.

    I did it with a drive from Pretec, but not sure if they make it anymore (I've had this one a long time before I decided to do it. Pics attached (before and after).

    Original drive case:

    Removed from case:

    Installed in new case (the rest of the fake thumb I used is the cap, but it doesn't fit right, so no pics right now):

    In use (the best of all):
