    Hi all,

    We have just recently changed our car and in the new car it doesnt have a cd player but does have a usb port so to play any music (besides on the radio) i need to rip music to a usb pendrive and play it that way so i was wondering what is the biggest usb pendrive i could buy?

    I have seen a 2TB pendrive on ebay but i havent heard of the brand name,also im not bothered about transfer rates.

    Any suggestions or recommendations would be much appreciated

    Regards Mark

    Fake capacity pen drives are not unknown on ebay, so unless you can find the same model sold by a reputable shop (or reported on by a reputable website etc.) then I'd assume it's a fake. If the price is under £250 it most definitely is.

    Generally 256GB is the highest available until you start to get into silly money territory with prices quadrupling with each capacity doubling. There are 512GB and 1TB models available like Corsair's GS and Kingston's Data Traveller though.

    You're looking at around £40-50 then.
