Custom Shaped Flash Drive USBs FAQ
If I have Data Lock on the USB, can the files be copied?
Data Lock does NOT protect any of the files from being copied. With data lock either a portion or the entire drive will be locked. That means you cannot reformat, erase or change any of that data. BUT - you can copy files. It does NOT protect against copying.
Note: If you have the files set up as an auto-run.exe the drive will need to have data lock. The auto-run needs a defined space to work within.
I want to print white text on my USB drive, but the digital proof has a white background. What do I do?
Adding a background to the artwork that matches the color of the custom USB case will allow you to view the text in the online digital proof.
Add text to the proof template indicating if you do/do not wish for this background color to be printed on the finished product. (Not required, but helpful).
What type of files can I upload for a USB?
Different devices may not read the files the way that you want them to but you can upload just about anything.
THESE ARE NOT CDs.
There is no standard.
The way a machine accesses the files on the USB will not be consistent.
For example, you can have a perfectly fine video file on a high quality USB...but if the computer can’t play that type of video file, it simply won’t play. That’s not because of anything anybody did wrong. The end user simply isn’t equipped. Luckily, with today’s technology, it’s pretty rare to encounter issues.
For audio file playback in cars, MP3 files are more universally recognized.
Can I change the order of my tracks after I upload them for a USB?
Tracks will be listed sequentially/alphabetically by name (not the order in which they were uploaded).
You will not be able to re sequence them in the project center.
We suggest using a track number prefix to help sort the files as you want.
EX: 01 Track One
02 Track Two
03 Track Three
Is there a minimum order for custom USBs?
Yes. For there is a 10 unit minimum on these types of USBs:
The other models have a minimum order quantity of 50 units:
Special information about the Key Shape Drive and Business Card Drive
Our Key Shape and Business Card drives are popular choices because of their unique and attention grabbing shapes, but those interesting shapes require the use of a USB interface that is a bit outside the norm and some devices may have difficulty reading the drive.
You can see from the pictures below that the interface used does not have the complete metal 'frame' around the USB contacts which allows for a lower profile drive (and works fine in most situations).
Please keep this in mind when choosing the model of USB drive for your project.
