I purchased a Transcend 256Mb USB stick for $66 
from a September Computer Fair.

(1) The LED has never flashed.
(2) Linux/parted did not like the partition structure, possibly 
    something to do with the boot and security "features".
    Once repartitioned it functions fine.

(1) Automagically mounts to /mnt/flash under Fedora Core2.
(2) The packaging included a 50cm USB extension cable (for older
    computers that have USB ports at the back).

It does the job.
