Are USB Flash Drives Re-writable?

It is important to keep in mind when using USB flash drives, that none of the files are permanent unless you lock them and purposely make them a permanent file on the drive, unable to be deleted. That being said, many people ask if USB flash drives are re-writable or not, and the answer is – yes.

USB flash drives are completely re-writable and you can update the contents on them by simply deleting the files from the drive. USB flash drives are made up of flash memory and data storage devices of the NAND-type, and are integrated with the interface USB, which stands for Universal Serial Bus, hence the name USB Flash Drive.

The storage capacity and type of USB drives is one that makes them easy to alter and change the files that are stored on them, so USB drives are re-writable and files are removable.

Most business professionals, teachers, and students use USB drives to store information or files, and have a means of easily transporting them from one place to another; like from home to school, or work to an off-site meeting. However, some major corporations may need the contents on their USB flash drives to be permanent, in order for mass distribution and protection that no one will alter the file. If you are looking to delete files, it is best to back them up first, just in case.

Premier Promo NOW is a local supplier of custom, bulk order USB flash drives for businesses in South Florida. If you are ordering USB drives for your company and need them data pre-loaded, need permanent files stored on each one, or need some guidance with removing and rewriting your USB drives, our expert staff can help.

Non-profits are amazing organizations. They often serve a purpose that benefits the community or an industry and are comprised of volunteers.

Must-Have Promotional Items for Expos

Expos are an amazing way to get your brand name out there. Even if you are not looking to franchise, take your company to a franchise expo and see what services you could maybe offer either the brands there or franchisees looking to buy.

What does your company do? What industry are you in? Research the top conferences, conventions, summits, and local chamber of commerce events to see how your brand could fit into the event, and be sure to bring a ton of promotional items with you.

If your company is looking to attend an expo, conference, convention, or local event, Premier Promo NOW has the must-have promotional items to customize and bring with you.

  1. Lanyards. If your funds allow, try to be the lanyard sponsor for the event. Being the lanyard sponsor means that everyone who registered for the event will be given a name tag attached to a lanyard that has none other than your brand’s name and logo printed on. Lanyards are literally walking advertisements, so be sure to take advantage of this opportunity when you can, for any event you attend. The great part about this type of event sponsorship is that you can order lanyards in bulk for a very affordable price.
  2. Promotional pens are a staple promotional product. Nearly every company you meet, no matter how large or small, has custom promotional pens. Why? Because they are an inexpensive way to get your brand name in front of consumers’ faces every single day. Any business exec or office employee has a stash of pens – make sure that your promo pen is in that stash by bulk ordering pens with your brand logo and business contact information printed on them, to take with you to expos.
  3. USB Flash Drives. Expos and conventions are where entrepreneurs converge; and most business execs and top employees need data storage. Creating custom USB flash drives as a promotional product for expos, is a thoughtful and useful way of creating brand awareness. USB flash drives are typically not inexpensive, so you can bet that ordering bulk USB drives and passing them out at expos is a sure-fire way to make sure that your promotional products are not making their way into the trash.

Converting USB to HDMI

Many people attempt to connect their numerous electronic devices, like computers and portable media players, and computers to televisions so they can display their favorite videos and even live-stream movies on a larger screen. Although most devices have a USB port, only some televisions and devices have an HDMI port.

Premier Promo NOW is a top provider of custom bulk order USB flash drives for local businesses in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. If you have already purchased USB flash drives for your office and are looking for a way to display your documents or media on a television or projector screen in the conference room, you can connect an HDMI cable to the USB port with a USB to HDMI converter box.

Before connecting the HDMI converter box, you should install any software that may come with it if you are using it with a computer. Then follow these steps:

  1. Insert HDMI cable into port on the television or device you are looking to connect to.
  2. Insert the other end of HDMI cable into HDMI port on the converter box.
  3. Insert the USB cable into the “USB/USB In” port on the converter box. This part will be unnecessary if the converter comes with a built in USB cable.
  4. Plug the USB connection into the device in which you are trying to get media to the device with the HDMI – so plug the USB connection into your laptop if you are connecting your laptop to a television to play media or display documents.

Thumb Drive vs. USB Drive: What’s the Difference

Premier Promo NOW is a company in Fort Lauderdale, Florida that creates custom promotional products for major brands and local businesses. Although we are not a tech company, we often hear “what is the difference between a thumb drive and a USB flash drive?” and the majority of people have no idea that the two are, in fact, different. So, what is the difference between a thumb drive and a USB drive?

A flash drive is a compact USB memory drive that acts like a portable hard drive. You can store data on it and transfer it from one computer to the next.

USB flash drives hold a great deal of information, up to 1T (terabyte) or 512GB (gigabyte) options are available online.

The difference between thumb drives and flash drives comes from security and protection. Thumb drives come with a protection feature called write protection. This means that the flash drive has a switch on the bottom of the drive that allows it to be locked or unlocked for write access. When it is unlocked, you are able to write data to the thumb drive, but when it is locked, you can only read the data. This helps make sure that you do not delete files from your flash drive.

Both thumb drives and USB flash drives store information the same, whether it be documents, pictures, videos, music, and more. Both are small and portable, and compatible with nearly every desktop computer, laptop, or tablet.

Premier Promo NOW has 8GB to 512MG size USB flash drives that can be custom printed with your business logo and ordered in bulk for your office. Are you a local business in Sunrise, Florida? Order by 1pm and receive next day delivery!
