Summary: Igloo owners will love it, they could heat their place up no problem.
Pros: This USB flash drive is prettty handy. Looks good in white.

I am not saying I am a pro, I may have been doing something wrong, but I looked for drivers, nothing on the card. Nothing on the web either for drivers. I would connect just fine on the 2.0 port.
