 Flash Memory Introduction
Flash memory is a form of EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory) that allows multiple memory locations to be erased or written in one programming operation.
In other terms, it is a form of rewritable memory chip that, unlike a RAM(Random Access Memory) chip, power supply is not required to hold the contents.
Flash memory is also an example of a Non-Volatile Read Write Memory (NVRWM).

  Flash memory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Flash memory costs far less than EEPROM and therefore has become the dominant technology wherever a significant amount of non-volatile, solid-state storage is needed.
Flash memory is also used in USB flash drives (thumb drives), which are used for general storage and transfer of data between computers.
Flash memory is non-volatile, which means that it does not need power to maintain the information stored in the chip.

 What is flash memory? - a definition from Whatis.com - see also: flash RAM
Flash memory is often used to hold control code such as the basic input/output system (BIOS) in a personal computer.
On the other hand, flash memory is not useful as random access memory (RAM) because RAM needs to be addressable at the byte (not the block) level.
Flash memory gets its name because the microchip is organized so that a section of memory cells are erased in a single action or "flash." The erasure is caused by Fowler-Nordheim tunneling in which electrons pierce through a thin dielectric material to remove an electronic charge from a floating gate associated with each memory cell.

 Tech Tip #013 - Sponsored by Geeks.com - Big Bruin
Memory Stick flash memory was first launched back in 1998, and although it has the support of many manufacturers, it seems to be most prominently used in Sony brand devices, including digital audio devices, cameras and even televisions.
Memory Stick is promoted by the group at the official Memory Stick website, which has a good deal of information about the media and applications for it.
Say you have devices that require you to have some or all of these different types of flash memory… Interfacing with all of them could be inconvenient if not for devices such as this 16-in-1 flash memory card reader.

 What is Flash Memory?
Flash memory differs from EEPROM in that EEPROM erases its content one byte at a time.
Flash memory can erase its data in entire blocks, making it a preferable technology for applications that require frequent updating of large amounts of data as in the case of a memory stick.
Note: Flash memory is not the same thing as flash RAM (Random Access Memory).

 Macworld: Feature: Flash memory
Flash memory stores data in solid-state transistors rather than on the magnetic platters of a hard drive.
Historically, flash memory’s major disadvantage has been price: in 2002, it cost about $260 per gigabyte, compared with $150 per gigabyte for a comparable one-inch "microdrive" hard drive.
The chip giant plans to incorporate flash memory into the chip sets it sells to computer makers; thus, the memory would be built into the motherboard rather than the hard drive.

 USB Flash Memory HOWTO
Most memory sticks are formatted for direct use on Windows and should therefore be considered as vfat-formatted.
Nonetheless, if a memory stick is to be used for the purpose of carrying data between Linux and Windows machines, it is best to keep it in the vfat format.
A compromise is to partition the memory stick in two parts: one in vfat and the other in ext2.

 Smart Media, Compact Flash, Memory Stick Data Recovery
Due to memory constraints in early cameras (and possibly also to inexperienced developers), the file system implementations are sometimes a bit shaky.
It is not uncommon to see cameras "wrap their writes around" when they don't realize they have reached the end of the card, erasing critical system structures located at the beginning of the media.
Another thing to keep in mind is that when a memory card begins to fail physically, total failure is not very far - backup at once.
