don't know what the anwser is as I never tried, but, curiously, as I was
looking over some USB stick specs two days ago, (thinking, should I get a
bigger stick ?), I noticed there is something called "U3 Smart", from
Cruzer? Titanium provides the latest in UFD technology, a U3 Smart capable
flash drive. Cruzer? Titanium is a computer in your pocket ? with U3,
your programs are available at any time on any PC.
* U3 Smart enabled
* Loaded with the following U3 programs
o CruzerSync synchronization tool
o SignupShield password manager
o SKYPE voice over IP software
o AVAST virus scan
which seems to be what you want
but, apart of seeing the 'U3' moniker, I know not much more
I phoned Express Data to aks them if the Sandisk they're shipping are the
U3 ones, but, they didn't know...
