It will come with some stuff on it, but you should be able to delete it off. I had to use internet explorer for it to work, but some have had no problems with firefox, so I don't know what was going on. They are supposed to ship in 6-8 weeks. Don't know how big they are, but hopefull more than 8MB..haha

mathiaus: USA & Canada only

They didnt ask for a credit card did they? So I'm pressuming that they are paying for the shipping & handling.

Also Baseball, Did you notice that it says that the USB drive cointains FAQS, Window Licensing Guide, License Brief ect. So I'm presuming that the drive is as little as 8 MB.

Dont dream too much, I bet microsoft thought of it all already. I bet they already knew alot of people would just order it and empty it and all that information shouldnt take more than 8 MB.

yeah, like I said in my first post, I figured that it would be something small, but there is always the change that it can be 64MB or maybe if we are lucky, even 128MB. I highly doubt that it is anything bigger than this, but its completely free, so we mine as well try it.

Just do what I did and stick in the address of a friend or relation who lives in the USA or Canada. You can always take credit for sending them a nice little pressie Cool

A 64 MB USB Drive cost around $19.99, Which a 8 MB can cost pennies, But until someone confirms the size I have no clue.

meh, FF messed up, had to use IE.

Looks good though, even if it is only 8 mb, it was free.


Thanks for the link.

yea im with psyco even if it is 8MB its still free and it will be enough for me to use to transfer my stuff to and from school an back again. Plus its free, i mean you cant get any better than that. Also, i to had the firefox problem when placing the order, so firefox users, just paste the link into IE (shudder) and it will work, the only page that doesnt work is the one where you place the order near the end of the transaction.

Good point, 8 MB may not be much but it does come in for use even if the Microsoft Logo on it, You can probably just brag is the state of the art Microsoft Flash Drive. LOL
