This isn't as big a deal as many people make it out to be. Anything
that implements the standard USB mass storage profile will work; the
protocols have been fully standardized for many years now. Even more
relevant is the fact that there are only three or four different USB
device-end chipsets used in mass storage devices nowadays, and they all
work on pretty much anything.
