A vast majority of computer users will be familiar with the term USB before reading this article, but if you need confirmation, look to the photo directly beneath this paragraph. There are five type A USB devices and two type C USB devices pictured in this image. The white device in the top left corner is an incredibly useful piece of technology, and it actually doesn’t have any storage of it’s own! It’s useful because it’s an adapter that can transfer files between a micro SD card and computers with either Type A or Type C USB ports. The second picture on this page provides two angles of this particular adapter.

What is a USB?
A common misnomer among data storage terms is referring to the exceedingly popular USB flash drive as a “USB” or “USB’s”. That term is not accurate unless you are using it strictly to refer to the adapter at the top of each device / the interface each device uses to connect to a computer. Flash drives are named for the flash memory chips that allow for an extraordinary amount of storage capacity to fit in the palm of your hand.
PC enthusiasts saw the Universal Serial Bus (USB) interface for the first time just before the turn of the century, in 1999. Before the USB adapter achieved widespread popularity, many computer kits used different interfaces for connecting computers with peripheral devices like keyboards and mice. In the 23 years since the USB was conceived, it has dominated the “market” for connecting a desktop or laptop with peripheral devices and has also become a standard for connecting computers with removable storage like USB flash drives or external hard drives. If you refer to the following photograph you will see five different peripheral devices that utilize the USB interface form factor.
It’s easy to imagine how someone who has no notion of what a Universal Serial Bus is could conflate the term’s flash drive and USB, so don’t feel bad if that describes you; and take it easy on your friend(s) / coworker(s) if they have been referring to flash drives as USB’s. If you’re still confused, simply calling it a flash drive is a straightforward and accurate approach to the nomenclature.
