Product Research


Overview: The Sony Micro Vault USB Flash Drive (USM-M series) makes backing up your data quick & easy. Simply plug the Micro Vault into your computer's USB port, then drag and drop the data you want to save. The body and USB connector are integrated, so there is no need to retract the USB connector or remove a cap.

Capacity: The Micro Vault USB Flash Drive has a 4 GB memory. Because a portion of the memory is used for data management functions, the actual usable memory is approximately 3.8 GB.

LED Indicator: When the data transfer is in progress, the prism LED illuminates. It is visible from all angles, so you can easily check the status of the data transfer. The indicator turns on only during the data access and remains off when there is no activity.

Space Saving Design: The USM-M series Micro Vault has a slim, compact design. When connected to a device, the length of the USB is shorter, providing a comfortable work space around the PC. Its narrow width prevents any interference with other objects. If desired, you can attach a strap or lanyard for convenience while transporting.

USB Port: The Sony Micro Vault employs a male USB (Type-A) connector which will plug directly into female USB (Type-A) ports of your computer.

Free Downloadable Software: The Sony Micro Vault USB Flash Drive includes File Rescue downloadable software that helps recover photos and videos that have been accidentally damaged or deleted. x-Pict Story software is also included, and can be used for creating customized slideshows of your images.

Compatible Operating Systems: The Sony Micro Vault USB Flash Drive and free downloadable software are compatible with the following Windows and Mac operating systems:

  • Windows:
    • Windows 7 Home Basic, Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise, Ultimate, and Starter
    • Windows Vista Basic, Home Premium, Business, Enterprise, Ultimate, and Starter
    • Windows XP Professional and Home Edition (SP3 or higher)
  • Mac:
    • Mac OS 10.1-10.6.x
